Called in to have a look as it is very near the Hop On Hop Off bus stop. It is good to see that part of the old Roman wall has been preserved, there are information boards and a statue located in the grounds of...More
I love history and if it would be only for the great historical value of the biggest example of the Roman city of Londinium I would think it is great but really for the uninterested in archeology there is no much to see. I enjoyed...More
It's a wall, but an old one. There is a statue of a Roman next to it, and an information board which shows a walk you can do around London to see the other remaining parts. The amazing thing about this wall, is how did...More
Actually found this by chance rather than planned. It's one of the best surviving pieces of a Roman wall. It dates from around 200 AD. It is nicely incorporated along with much more modern London around it and shows how important the wall was for...More
The Romans have left their mark all over Europe, here in London also. A great piece of history in the middle of a busy town. Nice, but I wouldn`t travel across town for this. If you are in the neighbourhood it is nice to see
So, a funny thing happened. I suspect we walked right near where the obvious above ground bits of the wall are, or could have reached them, but my goal was the portion of the wall that is inside the London Wall Carpark next to the...More
I really wanted to do this walk but it wasn't that simple! Even using google maps we walked around the area for half an hour before coming across the tiny garden where the walk starts. Then it transpired that the sections of the wall were...More
I found this by accident while looking for the Museum of London. I decided to follow the wall as far as I could. It is a surprising relic of the Romans in London. If you get a chance follow it around and read the signs....More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
We were on a weekend break but the visible bits of wall were tucked away and mot thronged. We never made it to the visitor centre, but like everything else it’ll be quieter on a weekday in term time. Enjoy.
