Step back through 2,000 years of history on this 3-hour walking tour of London. Be amazed by the layers which make up the rocking capital, from ancient artifacts at the Museum of London, to medieval market streets and remnants of the Roman city wall.
What to Expect
Get a comprehensive and fascinating account of how London developed from a small town, conquered by the Roman Empire, to the booming economic capital it is today.

The Museum of London will be your starting point and reference, laying down the historic foundations of what is to come. Lose yourself in a world of curiosity, ancient archeological artifacts, intricate diagrams, and lifelike models, then take to the streets to follow the Roman trail.

Once outside you will be guided past the remains of Londinium’s defensive wall and city fort. Then visit magnificent Guildhall.

Proceed past the ruins of the Temple of Mithraeum, discovered in 1954, and head into the heart of the city in search of its medieval backstreets and hidden courtyards. Amble down Eastcheap street and hear the echoes of the past butchers who lined the market.

Find yourself at the foot of The Monument of the Great Fire of London, and discover where history itself has been buried at All Hallows-by-the-Tower; the oldest church in London.

Depending on the time, your tour may then continue to the Tower of London or the Lloyd’s building and Tower 42, bringing you nicely into the present day.
