A Roman London Walking Tour

A day-tripper guide to Roman London.

About the Roman London Walking Tour

According to mythology the earth was surrounded by a mighty sea called Oceanus; by extending the influence of Rome to the equivalent of outer space the Emperor Claudius was going against accepted wisdom.

Britain was worthless and scary at the same time – an island of dangerous people far from the civilised centre of the world.

Today if you know where to look, you too can experience the story of old Londinium and discover the threads that bind the ancient and modern worlds.
