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

This is your opportunity to see the remains of a Roman house and baths still in its original position, under what is now an office block in Lower Thames Street.

When you arrive you will be given a very short talk about what they found, and how its position fits in with 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.

Craig has been to see these Roman ruins himself, and has written a review and put some photos on his London blog. And whilst he thinks the ruins themselves are a bit hum-drum (they're basically just a lot of rubble and stubby walls), it really does feel like you're stepping through the wardrobe doors into Narnia.
