Guildhall Art Gallery & Roman Amphitheatre Free


Established in the late 19th century as a collection of art treasures worthy of the capital city, the Guildhall Art Gallery soon lived up to this ambition, with exhibitions that featured world famous masterpieces and works by some great artists. Now, following the gallery's first renovation and re-hang in more than 15 years, visitors have the chance to witness paintings dating from 1670 to the 21st century.

Step into the ruins of London's Roman Amphitheatre, in which crowds would once have gathered to watch wild animal fights, public executions and gladiatorial combats. Lost for centuries, the original circular walls were rediscovered by archaelogists working on the site of the new Guildhall Art Gallery building in 1988.

On birthdays and bank holidays me and Mr G like to have a stroll around the capital and take in the weird and wonderful things we find along our way. London has so many good things that are not main attractions hidden down roads you walk past all the time and this little gem was one of them.

They have a really good selection of paintings, loads of them more quirky playful choices than those...more

I love the beautiful art gallery attached to the Guildhall. They have a good collection that is a must visit. The collection contain European pieces and some modern items. It changes often so can be visited often...

A great art gallery right in the City. Plus it's free entry for everyone now, not just City residents & workers! If you're looking for some culture in your lunchbreak, you couldn't do better than coming along here and soak it all in.

There's a good range of work, with some collections focusing specifically on Victorian art, or pictures of London. There's also the 'hidden' Roman Amphitheatre...more

I can't believe nobody has reviewed this yet! Nestling in one of the modern arms of the Guildhall is a fairly extensive art gallery - normally around 250 paintings or pieces, with changing exhibitions around a central theme.

It costs £2.50 to get in (£1 with concessions); but if you're a genuine City worker, you can take along a piece of your company's headed paper, and they let you in...more

The Guildhall Art Gallery is often overlooked but is a very important addition to the city's art gallery scene. Free of entry to City workers and residents it houses an impressive collection of Victorian art. It is, in general, the collection of the City of London (the Square Mile, that is), and has focused on images of London subjects, thus an artistic counterpart to the Museum of London. I'm...more
