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 to the public every Saturday from April to November. 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.


Tickets include a booking fee and must be booked in advance.
