Description

In the midst of carving the largest empire the world had ever seen, in 47AD the Romans found Londinium on the banks of the river Thames. From a Druidic culture of Celts, the arrival of these progressive yet sometimes ruthless invaders brought with them towns, road networks, our calendar, underfloor heating, the Latin language, currency, bureaucracy and changed the face of Britannia Major into a strong Anglo-Roman outpost.

With your expert Blue Badge guide, visit the sites still standing today that have seen the rise, fall and rise again of the city’s fortunes over the centuries since including the original fortifications, a temple to an obscure cult and the remains of London’s very own Colosseum. Hear about the Romans favourite local street food. Discover life in a very different London.
