St. Paul's Tube, exit 2 | Map

Guided by Kevin

A walk from London Bridge to the Guildhall which reveals the discoveries that have changed the traditional view of Early London.  We walk from the Roman riverfront to the Boudiccan period Fort to North Europe's biggest Forum, past Temples, Bath Houses, Colonnades, shops, houses and the Amphitheatre that ushered in a new era in Britain's history.  On the way we investigate how Archaeology works to provide dynamic new insights into the City's past and how it reconciles with the view of the past created by historical evidence. The walk is guided by Kevin Flude, the distinguished emeritus Museum of London archaeologist and museum curator.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Archaeology of the City walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Archaeology of the City walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
