'The Roman Wall - then & now' Guided Walk (4:00pm)

  • Jun 22, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Sunday 22nd June at 4:00pm for a guided walk along the Roman Wall (we are repeating the walk at 12:30pm - as a separate event).


About the walk

We will be walking the route of the old Roman Wall, starting at Tower Hill and finishing at Blackfriars.

The wall was built between 190AD and 225AD and defined the shape of the City of London.  As the City expanded in the 18th and 19th centuries a lot of the wall was knocked down, although there is a bit left.

We will be following the wall using a Braun & Hogenberg map (below) which was drawn in 1572, it shows the wall intact and was one of the first maps to be drawn of London.  Using the map, we will be able to see not only what the Roman's built, but also how the wall was adapted and what was built around it in the 16th century when the map was drawn.  We can then compare this by what exists on and around the wall today, some 1800 years after it was built.

The guided walk will be led by myself.  Full Member’s 2014 will be free, everyone else the walk will be £5 each.  Maps will be provided.

We walk about 2 miles and so expect it to take about 2 hours 30mins.  We finish near Blackfriars tube station where we will head to a pub.

If you can't see us outside the station, please call.


Look out for the group sign -

Hope to see you there!

    It was very interesting and pleasing to discover parts of the City and the wall that I've never been to before. Thank you.

    Sorry I couldn't attend this time as something else unexpected happened. Hope you do this walk at a later date as I would like to come along.
