Under an otherwise unremarkable office block in the City can be found one of London’s largest visible Roman ruins. Visible very rarely though, as it’s behind locked doors.


The remains were first discovered in 1848 and more fully revealed in several additional phases of excavation, showing a modest bath house preserved within the courtyard of a much larger structure, possibly an inn.

Once rarely open to the public, the Museum of London now organises semi-regular tours, and this year’s dates have been announced.

Tours cost £8 and take place at weekends from 26 Mar – 27 Aug 2016. The 45 minute tours take place at: 10.30, 11.30am, 12.30, 13.45, 14.45, and 15.45

I took a look around on one of its open days back in 2011.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
