I have a keen interest in Roman history but couldn't help but feel a little disappointed with this. Only a very small part of the amphitheatre has been uncovered and the illusion is broken with the bright neon wireframe people everywhere. It would had been...More

Located within/under the Guild Hall in London you can enter for free and go down to the basement to see what remains of this old Roman Amphitheater. The are is not large, but the display is interesting with highlighting.

I've visited the gallery before and am never dissappointed. I saw fantastic works of art not seen on previous visits and of course the amphitheatre still moves me when I walk into that darkened room. A fantastic place to visit in the City of London...More
