I am lucky enough to have been invited to dine at the Guildhall twice this year. The food has been beautiful both times, and the vegetarian options are clearly not just a side thought (as they seem to be at many places). It also helps...More

An interesting stop that offers artwork, roman ruins in the basement level and insight into the guilds that made (and still make) big parts of London run. If you want to see something more than the obligatory London sights, this is it.

It is free to visit the Guildhall - just call at the reception. Access is then granted to the large, historic, grand hall which is very interesting. There are numerous plaques etc to read. The official markers measuring a foot, a yard and a metre...More

We happily stumbled on the Guildhall and were so impressed with the square outside, the actual building and the Roman Amphitheatre in the sub floor level. Some of the art work in the main building was hung in an awkward way (could not see a...More
