Roman London Walking Tour: Wednesdays

The original City beneath our feet

What have the Romans ever done for us Londoners? Plenty!

Join our Roman guided tour and let us ‘roam’ around the City and discover a history that dates back nearly 2,000 years. Let one of our qualified City of London Guides reveal the ancient city of Londinium that lies beneath your feet.

  • Learn why the Romans founded the City of Londinium, what they bought - and what they liked to export. 
  • See the site of a Roman bathhouse that’s now a pretty garden (a model of it’s in the Museum of London)
  • Discover a temple to Mithras that was only discovered after bombing in World War Two
  • Take in a view of the original Roman wall that guarded the City 1,800 years ago. 

Please note: children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Private tours

If you'd like to organise your own walk, lecture or a virtual tour, then please use our Find a Guide section. If you're a member of an Arts Society or a U3A group we'd love to take you on a tour of the City. And if you're a company based in the City who'd like to organise a social event for your work colleagues, why not book an evening walk with us? 

If you've been on a walk recently we'd love to hear from you. Why not leave a review on our TripAdvisor page?

Note: We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible
