You don’t have to go to Rome to see Roman ruins, or even St Albans, Bath or York. Though people were all ready living here, it was the Romans who founded the modern city of Londinium that through the millennia has metamorphosed into today what is possibly the greatest city in the world. We will see it all in this unique, ever growing and much loved Roman London Tour.
Much of Roman London is now 23 feet or 7 metres underground but if you know where to look then you can still see Roman structures today. What makes it especially incredible is that they just about survived 2,000 of construction, great fires, bombs and wars.
Our Roman Tour will see us walk across the length and breadth of Roman London and to places that most people never get to see.
This special Roman London walking tour takes you way from the mainstream tourist sights of the West End. Instead we will explore the original Londinium or the City of London as it is today. It’s a bit of an Indiana Jones adventure as we will go totally off the beaten track but in the middle of London.
See the biggest Roman ruins in London
We will visit the sites of the old Roman Baths in London and see some of the most impressive sections of the old Roman city wall which used to span the entire city along with the ruins of an old Roman fort.
The tour also takes us underground into a crypt with the flooring of a Roman house and a ‘re-laid’ Roman pavement or sidewalk.
Going underground to the Roman Temple, basilica, bastions and ampitheatre!
Where possible we will visit the famed Temple of Mithras, the Persian god of heavenly light which was discovered in the 20th century before being moved to a new location. It has now been pain stakingly put back in place and restored but underneath a 21st century office tower.
We’ll visit the site of the largest Roman building north of the Alps. Also you’ll see the famous London Stone, once the size of a Stonehenge type stone. We will venture underground too and see the remains of the London amphitheatre. At one point 7,000 people used to watch the events unfold in the arena.
They might not be the most complete Roman buildings in the world but they provide a fascinating insight on the very earliest history of modern London and get to see places that even most locals never get to explore.
Some of Londons newest attractions are Roman ones and we will It’s a good job we are a friendly bunch as some of them are in unusual places!
