It's FREE and it is a proper little gem of a gallery. Go out of your way and see something that is as charming as it is spectacular. Sure, there isn't a lot there ... BUT it is always quiet, you can get to see...More

I had never visited the Guildhall before and was pleasantly surprised to find a very easy hour of history and pictures with excellent audio guide. A particular collection that helps understand the history and rise of London as an economic power. Well worth it and...More

Free. Fee payable for special exhibitions. Head to the basement to see an excellent presentation of the discovery of London's Roman amphitheatre including sections of the walls. Above is an art gallery, largely Victorian paintings. The gallery was smaller than we expected - an awful...More

Me and my husband were so intrigued by the old Roman Amphitheater under the Guildhall Art Gallery after we saw a documentary on TV. We visited during the summer holidays, so there was an event on for children. They had "Big Dig" and dress up...More

A very small but very popular art gallery in London, showing Victorian collection of art. Paintings are displayed according the various themes like beauty, faith, leisure, work, imagination etc. Very impressive and very nice. We liked most the paintings based on the theme 'faith'. A...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
