About Guildhall Art Gallery:
The collection includes portraits from the 16th century to today, plus views of London form the 17th century.
About Roman London's Amphitheatre:
London's first Roman amphitheatre was built in AD70 from wood but was renovated in the early 2nd century with tiled entrances and ragstone walls.
The amphitheatre was used for entertaining soldiers and the public with animal fighting and public execution of criminals, as well as religious activities.
When the Roman's left in the 4th century the amphitheatre lay derelict for hundreds of years. In the 11th century the area was reoccupied and by the 12th century the first Guildhall was built next to it.
