Learn about the City of London's fascinating past

Prized artefacts await...

Where: City of London Heritage Gallery


Despite not being as well known as the Museum of London, the City of London Heritage Gallery has some prized artefacts on display, such as one of the few surviving copies of the Magna Carta, the 13th century document that enshrined in law people's right to justice and a fair trial. It is without a doubt one of the most important documents ever created, and one that seems worth revisiting in the current times.


You will also find records of Oscar Wilde's 1895 imprisonment, and the original plans for the iconic Boundary Housing Estate in Shoreditch, one of the UK's first housing developments to be built by a local council.
