Highlights

Roam in the footsteps of the ancients…and the medieval, and the Victorians, and pretty much all of London’s inhabitants throughout history. Become a part of Londinium’s tradition.

This tour has you walking the literal path where the Romans established London’s boundary two thousand years ago. The wall that surrounded that ancient city stood for a millennium, affecting decisions and development right up to today.

You don’t have to be a history geek to get excited about the lives of people in the past. It’s so easy to get pulled into the adventures of soldiers, kings and commoners alike. During this walk, you will view the fortifications that the Romans first built, and that the Normans used as their foundations. You’ll step right up to the walls that the English royalty relied on for centuries to protect and defend their power base. You’ll touch the very stones that fortified the city of London throughout time.
