Some of the best preserved Roman remains in the City are also the least well-known...

This is a rare opportunity to see the remains of a Roman house and baths under what is now an office block in Lower Thames Street.

Craig has been to see these Roman ruins himself, and has written a little review and taken some photos. You can read it on his London blog.

When you arrive you will be given a very short talk about what they found, and how it relates to the wider city of Londinium. Then you will head down some stairs into the basement, where you will see the ruins stretched out before you.

Even if the ruins themselves are a bit hum-drum (it's basically just a lot of rubble and stubby walls), it really does feel like stepping through the wardrobe doors into Narnia!
