Visit City of London Heritage Gallery
The City of London Heritage Gallery and Guildhall Art Gallery will reopen on Saturday 1 August, for weekends only in August. Please see the new visitor information while planning your trip.
The City of London has a working record of its history stretching back nearly one thousand years. Enjoy a rare opportunity to view treasures held in trust for the nation.
The Great Parchment Book, 1639
The Great Parchment Book is known as the Domesday of the Ulster Plantation. The Book has significant information about the native Irish, English and Scottish people who lived in Ulster (now modern Northern Ireland) and their relationship with London and central government in the seventeenth century.
Boundary Housing Estate
Plans of the iconic Boundary Housing Estate just north of the City of London, 1900.
Imprisonment of Oscar Wilde
A prison register recording the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde, 1895.
The Magna Carta
Did you know the City Corporation owns one of the few copies of the Magna Carta in existence today? Kept in storage at Guildhall Library and periodically displayed at the Heritage Gallery, the document is widely regarded as one of the finest surviving 13th-century copies. Because of its delicate nature, it is not on permanent display.
Watch a short film about the story of Magna Carta in the City of London and Temple.
The Heritage Gallery is part of Guildhall Galleries - a collection of eight attractions at Guildhall.
