Go back in time and discover the original Roman City walls

London, Greater London

Follow in the footsteps of Romans as you explore the history of the walls that protected the original City of London.

The ruins of London Wall are all that remains of the defensive wall built by the Romans around the original London - Londinium. Built in the late 2nd/early 3rd century, it was one of the largest construction projects carried out in Roman Britain – stretching for nearly 3 miles.

Parts of the wall can still be seen today in the grounds of the Museum of London, in the Barbican Estate, in a hotel courtyard on Coopers Row in St Alphege Gardens, off Wood Street and near Tower Hill underground station.
