The City of London Walk

2000 years of History.


The Walks provides an introduction to 2000 Years of London's history. It concentrates on the period of the Romans to the 17th Century but provides a framework to understand the present day City. The walk uses actual remains and visible evidence to evoke an understanding of the Past and introduces the techniques that archaeologists and historians use to uncover the past.

The walk is lead by a Museum Curator or an Archaeologist and is led by someone experienced in taking School groups around the City.
