I'd never been here before, but was pointed in this direction to see the Lord Mayor's Carriage. A beautiful old building with free entry. Very grand. Very enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.

Histoic building, which is characterized by unusual architecture.. The place is worth a visit for those who are interested in architecture or work in the real estate business.

Great place to visit while in London! Historically important, it is free to visit, and not very busy. There's a great art gallery to view, and further exhibitions that cost a small price to visit. Would recommend visiting!

We are very lucky to have visited the Guildhall twice now, both times with an invite to dine in the Great Hall. It is a fantastic building and well worth popping in when in the City of London.

Guildhall is only 10 minutes walk from the St.Paul Cathedral but for some strange reason tourists do not go there, which is actually a good thing. The building dates back to 1440, it survived several restorations and looks absolutely gorgeous now both inside and outside....More

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
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

If you go through the modern building on the left, they will just let you in and see the Great Hall (which is really the main part). You just have to go through the airport-style security.
