Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: London Mithraeum, 12 Walbrook, London EC4N 8AA England

This location has been center of London for couple of thousand years. That’s where the legends came, where the Romans built a temple which is on the Bloomberg building. The mysterious cult of Mithras first appeared in Rome in the 1st century AD. It spread across the Empire over the next 300 years, predominantly attracting merchants, soldiers and imperial administrators. Meeting in temples which were often constructed below ground, these were private, dark and windowless spaces. The mythological scene of Mithras killing a bull within a cave, the ‘tauroctony’ is at the heart of the cult, and its full meaning is subject of much speculation.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: St. Mary Woolnoth Church, King Willaim St., London EC3V 9AN England

The church's site has been used for worship for at least 2,000 years; traces of Roman and pagan religious buildings have been discovered under the foundations of the present church

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Cornhill Devils, 54-55, Cornhill, London EC3V 3PD, UK

The three devilish terracotta figures are an unusual example of long-lasting revenge. They are intended to mock worshippers next door at St Peter upon Cornhill, an old city church now virtually submerged at street level by office blocks.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: St Olave's Church, 8 Hart Street, London EC3R 7NB England

• This church is a burial ground for plague victims
The plague of 1665 killed an estimated 100,000 Londoners (20 per cent of the city’s population) in seven months, so it’s hardly surprising that there are a few burial grounds still knocking about right under our feet. One such graveyard is St Olave’s churchyard in the City of London, where 365 plague victims were buried. Among them is Mary Ramsay, the woman blamed for bringing the plague to London.
Its one of the few medieval churches to survive the ravages of the Great fire in 1666, and also one of the city’s smallest.
