Roman London

Join Caroline Powell for a walk around the City of London, delving into its Roman history.

Discover how the Romans came to the British Isles in 43AD and how important the Thames was in encouraging the Romans to found the City of Londinium. We will see fragments of the Roman wall that surrounded the City, discover Roman pavements and artefacts from the people who settled in the city until 410AD.

We will marvel at Roman remains, including the Temple of Mithras that lies below the brand new Bloomberg Building close to the Bank of England. Every Roman city had an amphitheatre and London’s is beneath the Guildhall Art Galley, with seating for 7000 spectators,  and was only discovered a few years ago during the construction of that building. Perhaps some of the 7000 spectators were the soldiers from the nearby Roman Fort.

London has the lot or Roman sites if you know where to look! This walk unwraps the layers of history in our spectacular capital city.
