Not much remains of Roman London above ground, but what's left is well worth seeing on a guided tour.

This one will take you to site of the Temple of Mithras and the old amphitheatre (by the Guildhall Art Gallery), as well as the remains of the original Roman walls and military fort.

Along the way you will learn a lot about how Londinium's residents worked, rested and played.

Craig has never been on this actual tour, but he has written a review of a walk around Roman London on his blog (you can see the actual walk here). You might like to read his description of the amphitheatre in the basement of the Guildhall Art Gallery as well, and the Billingsgate Roman House and Baths.

There are plenty of Roman artefacts to be found in the Museum of London.
