Guildhall Art Gallery, London

4.5
#32 of 418 in Shopping in London
Guildhall Art Gallery was established in 1886 as 'a Collection of Art Treasures worthy of the capital city'. The original building was destroyed during a severe air raid in 1941. In 1988, when the Gallery was being rebuilt on its original site, Museum of London archaeologists discovered the remains of London’s Roman Amphitheatre. The new building was redesigned to incorporate the underground Roman ruins and opened in 1999.

  • I came here purely because it was free but stumbled upon the free tour (brilliantly lead by Robert) and discovered a Roman amphitheatre in the basement!! This place has lockers for customers in the basement area which is £1 but you get that back when you collect your bag and coats etc. This place also has air conditioning A brilliant hidden gem of the museum side of London!
  • 10/10 Art Gallery Some fantastic resplendent looking paintings, nice range of art too on both floors. More classical style upstairs and more modern downstairs. Would highly recommend visiting this place along with the Museum of London nearby! Fairly small place, downstairs is cool... Including the Amphitheatre :)
