 Discover Roman London – Guided Walk

Let’s ‘roam’ around the City and discover a history that dates back nearly 2,000 years.
Join Valary Murphy, a qualified City of London Guide, who will reveal the ancient city of Londinium that lies beneath your feet.

Learn why the Romans founded the City of Londinium, what they brought – and what they liked to export.

See the site of a Roman bathhouse that’s now a pretty garden (a model of it is in the Museum of London) and where there was a temple to Mithras that was only discovered after bombing in the Second World War.

Step into the Guildhall Art Gallery
and view part of the original amphitheatre where gladiators once fought and take in a view of the original Roman wall that guarded the City 1,800 years ago.

The walk ends up by the Museum of London where you can learn more about the Romans in London and see some of the amazing artefacts archaeologists have unearthed – and continue to unearth.

The walk will start at Tower Hill Underground  Station
