This year marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, without which it’s likely that most of his plays would have been lost, and there are two exhibitions to mark the anniversary.
About Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman AmphitheaterA 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.

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