This is a good way to spend a free half hour in the City of London, but the Roman amphitheatre stuff is a bit of an afterthought, as if the Corporation of London accidentally uncovered the remains, and then decided to make the minimum effort...More
I went to the Roman Amphitheatre by accident - I happened to see the Guildhall Art Gallery (where the amphitheatre is located) was open and decided to go in. It's free of charge (which always helps) and is located within walking distance of other free...More

We're glad you found us! We’re really sorry about the lack of signage in the Amphitheatre when you visited. Unfortunately the original signs were recently damaged and needed to be replaced - they were re-installed yesterday afternoon, although we accept that this is not much...More
On a weekday afternoon we had the whole display to ourselves. Wonderful free display showing the excavation site in the lower level, explaining the preservation process and how they managed to build over it. Strongly recommend you make a point of seeing the cabinets upstairs...More

Thanks for your review. We're really glad that you enjoyed your visit.
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
We stopped here after visiting the Mithraeum and before going onto the London Museum , another one of our free visits!
The Amphitheatre is in the basement of a free art gallery which we enjoyed viewing before we went downstairs.
The Amphitheatre is explained well...More
Visited on pancake day and there was lots going on outside the art gallery! Great pancakes and fun races from all the guilds. We went down to the Amphitheatre and were amazed by what we saw. It was great! It was a great place to...More
This is a great place to visit, tours can be booked but there are free tours as well.
Discovered accidentally during building works, part of the ampitheatre has been preserved under the guildhall.
There's a beautiful art gallery as well.
This is well worth a...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.
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 neighbourhoods. 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
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
