You do not 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 grown into modern day London.

Full description
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 and what makes it especially incredible is that they just about survived 2000 years of construction, great fires, bombs and wars. This walking tour takes you away from the mainstream tourist sights of the West End into the original Londinium or the City of London as it is today. You 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 you underground into a crypt with the flooring of a Roman house and a ‘re-laid’ Roman pavement or sidewalk. Where possible you 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 painstakingly put back in place and restored but underneath a 21st century office tower. You will visit the site of the largest Roman building north of the Alps, the famous London Stone and the remains of the London amphitheater where 7000 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.
