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.

We offer daily walks around the City of London

Our daily walks run from the City Information Centre, just south of St Paul's. Although booking is advised it's fine to just turn up on the day and pay.

In addition, you can visit some of the City's delightful gardens, while in the evening take a stroll along the river to admire London's bridges, now beautifully lit thanks to the Illuminated River Project. 

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

If you would 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 would like to organise a social event for your work colleagues, why not book an evening walk with us? As guides we know where all the good pubs are!

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