The Guildhall Art Gallery is No.8 in our list of London’s best art galleries, and the Roman amphitheatre underneath is No.4 in our list of most historic sites.

The Guildhall Art Gallery tells the story of the City of London with paintings, photos and statuary. Most of the items are portraits of famous figures, but there are also some naval battle scenes and views of the City in days gone by.

Roman London Amphitheatre

Any visit to the Guildhall Art Gallery would not be complete without a trip to the basement. It was during the construction of a new part of the gallery in 1988 that workmen discovered the remains of Roman London’s amphitheatre – our very own coliseum.

Very little of it remains today, with only a few broken walls of the eastern entrance visible, but they have been cleverly extended with the use of lighting so you can see where the seating would have been. And as you walk out into the arena computer generated imagery brings the scene to life, with a soundscape to match.
