There's not a huge amount of Roman London left above ground (we can thank Boudicca for that!), but what's left is well worth seeing on a guided tour.

The highlight of the walk is undoubtedly when you see the remains of London's old amphitheatre in the basement of the Guildhall Art Gallery. The room is very dark and quiet inside, and you can see a sliver of the inner ring and the entrance passageway. Have a quick read of Craig's review if you'd like to see some photos of it.

The tour will also show you some substantial walls, and what's left of the military fort near the Museum of London. There is a surprising amount of this above ground, and 99% of Londoners probably don't have a clue that it exists. You can see some photos of it in Craig's review of Roman London.

That's all the information we've got for the walk itself, but if you're interested in Roman London then there are a couple of other places worth visiting. (Note: they aren't included on this walk.) The most impressive remains are underneath an office block in Lower Thames Street, called the Billingsgate Roman House and Baths. There is a also a little piece of Roman flooring in the crypt of All Hallows by the Tower church. There is a famous (but fake) Roman Bath in Surrey Street, and some more Roman wall opposite the Tower of London. We've put together our own walk around Roman London if you'd like to make a day of it.
