The Guildhall Art Gallery was established in 1885 as a place to display the City of London's extensive collection, but was destroyed during the Blitz in 1941. It was rebuilt in 1999 and displays about 250 works at any one time, on a rotating basis. There is a great deal of Victorian and, as to be expected, London-themed, work. There is also a small, but very interesting, museum - and the Art Gallery additionally houses London's Roman Amphitheatre.
