London Mithraeum - Prices, opening hours, news, events and exhibitions

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.
