The Guildhall, dating back to 1411, has been used as a town hall for several hundred years, and is still the ceremonial and administrative centre of the City of London.
The Guildhall complex houses the offices of the City of London Corporation and various public facilities. Greater London also has a City Hall.
During the Roman period it was the site of an amphitheatre, the largest in Britannia, partial remains of which are on public display in the basement of the Guildhall Art Gallery and the outline of whose arena is marked with a black circle on the paving of the courtyard in front of the hall.
