Guildhall Art Gallery Family Activities

Family activities

Sign up to our Monthly Family Newsletter to receive information on family-friendly events and activities at Guildhall Art Gallery and London's Roman Amphitheatre. We run regular family activities on the Second Saturday of every month, and special events during school holidays.

In the Gallery, we also provide free family friendly guides for all our special exhibitions, and family bags are available to collect at the front desk to help families engage with our collection during their visit.

Second Saturday

On the Second Saturday of every month, we run themed family events. A revolving programme of family activities may have you heading into the Roman Amphitheatre and hearing tales of Roman conquests or creating crafts from the Victorian paintings surrounding you.

To find out more about this month’s theme and book, check the Second Saturdayevent page.

There will also be a story corner with soft cushions, and building bricks available, and as if that wasn’t enough under 12s can visit our exhibition Treasures of Gold and Silver Wire for free, and on the second Saturday of the month can each bring an accompanying adult in for free with them too.

Activities are free, but booking is advised.
