About the London Mithraeum

The restored Temple of Mithras, now sited close to the site of its discovery underneath the Bloomberg office block.

The Temple has been rebuilt in a dark room as an echo of how they used to be, and you are given a 15 minute "experience" in the temple.

You are recommended to book tickets in advance as there might be quite a wait for a slot otherwise.

A review is here.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
