Centro Iberico was a squatted school in Notting Hill, England, that became a social centre, a live venue and a studio in the 1980s.

Centro Iberico, also known as the Anarchy or Alternative ‘A’ Centre,[1] at 421 Harrow Road alongside the canal, was a former school squatted by Spanish anarchists. It provided anarcho-punk conditions for gigs by the Mob, Conflict, Poison Girls and the Subhumans.[2] Throbbing Gristle played and recorded at the centre, and future Madonna producer William Orbit began his recording career and Guerilla Records whilst living there.
