The Guildhall Art Gallery ⇒ is free to enter and is right beside Guildhall ⇐ .  Beneath are the remains of a Roman Amphitheater (AD 70) made more atmospheric by illuminated competitors.  The gallery houses a moderate size collection of quite impressive art including some pre-Raphaelite works.

The Defeat of the Floating Batteries at Gibraltar (painted) by John Singleton Copley

The painting is so large that it occupies two floors. I’m sure that’s Stephen Fry on the horse.
