Beneath the curious cobbled pathways of the Square Mile lies a rich Roman history surviving 2,000 years of building, fires and bombings.

Lower Thames Street is home to one of Roman London’s most fascinating remains. The Billingsgate Roman Bathhouse was discovered in 1848, and is now open for public inspection.

Once a wealthy person’s house with riverside views at Londinium’s peak, the site also shines a light on the period after Britannia was cut off from the Roman Empire in 410 with evidence of squatting in the crumbling building.

Explore this fascinating insight into ancient life in the City on a 45-min guided tour and discover the remains of the Roman Bathhouse which lies hidden beneath office buildings.
