Guildhall Art GalleryThe Guildhall Art Gallery is the Corporation of London's collection of 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century works of art. Fine architecture and a sumptuous setting accompany this important and varied collection of paintings located in the heart of the City of London. Famous 19th century paintings include works by Constable, Landseer, Rossetti, Tissot and Millais, among many others. The gallery also offers the opportunity to see the fully restored, enormous 18th century canvas 'The Defeat of the Floating Batteries at Gibraltar, September 1782' by John Singleton Copley. In 1988, Museum of London archaeologists unearthed the capital's only Roman amphitheatre in Guildhall Yard. Almost 15 years later, the doors to the amphitheatre opened for the first time in nearly 2,000 years. Entry to the amphitheatre is included in the Gallery's admission and entry is free of charge on Fridays.
