Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman Amphitheater

 

About Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman Amphitheater

A fairly modern building on the historic Guildhall that houses the City of London's impressive art collection.

There is a permanent display, of mostly Victorian art, but also a large section set aside for a regularly changing display in the basement.

A monthly heritage piece is shown off next to the cloakroom.

In the deep basement though is the uncovered remains of London's Roman Amphitheater.
