Guildhall Gallery

Today the Guildhall Gallery in the City of London reopened following extensive refurbishment and a re-hang of paintings. The Gallery was established in 1886 as a "Collection of Art Treasures worthy of the capital city". Shown is a detail from one of its many treasures: Dante Gabriel Rossetti's La Ghirlandata (1873). There is also a Roman Amphitheatre on the site, discovered in 1988. Admission to the Gallery's permanent collection and the Roman Amphitheatre is free. There is a charge for special exhibitions, but they are free to Art Fund members and residents of the City (bring proof of address). CLICK for more information.
