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.
