Roman Bath and House Guided Tours: Saturdays

Beneath the streets and cobbled pathways of the City of London lies a wealth of Roman history, surviving 2000 years of building, fire and bombings.

Lower Thames Street is home to one of Roman London's most fascinating remains. Enter an apparently unremarkable office building, meet your City of London Guide and descend underneath the streets to explore the site of the Billingsgate Roman Bathhouse.

It was discovered in 1848, but actually dates to the late second century and is now open to visitors for a limited period. Come and explore this extraordinary glimpse into ancient City life on this guided tour lasting just under an hour.

Dates: every Saturday from 31 March to 24 November 2018 (apart from 22 September) at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm.

Please note you need to book your tickets (£9, concessions £7) in advance via Eventbrite (booking fee applies) and the only access to the site is via a staircase.

Nearly all the regular walks and tours offered on this website are just turn up and pay or free. For these walks no advanced booking is possible. There are only a few tours that need to be booked in advance (Smithfield Market, Leadenhall Market walks and Guildhall and the Roman Bath House tours) because of restricted numbers.

If you want a walk or lecture for a group of people, then please use our Find a Guide section.
