In the 1990’s my train arrived in Cannon Street and I would pass the location of the London Stone. It was housed in it’s own little back-lit under-dwelling in the rather dilapidated Bank of China building. Sitting behind a heavy metal grill it was easy...More

Went to see the London stone expecting to see a historic landmark and something special. Literally it's a block of stone and the date and original purpose of the Stone are unknown. All we really have is some speculation about it's original purpose and use...More

After a small holiday, the London stone has now returned to 111 Cannon street and sits inside a nice glass enclosure. Don't forgot to stop by and have a look at this truly historic stone. This is the same stone that Jack Cade marched into...More

The London stone is currently at the London museum so do not waste your time going there. It was moved temporarily this year.

I think this used to be on Cannon Street but you can now view it in the London Museum. Really it is just a big lump of stone. The Museum of London is worth a visit as there are so many other things to see.

The stone is NOT THERE. It has been moved because of building work! No concern for the myth and legend of the stone as its disappearance could signify the fall of London - may be that was why there was Brexit! "By the early 19th...More

No one can blame if you walk right past the London Stone. The stone is less than two feet and encased behind a white iron grate on Cannon Street, what is not notable. However, this rock is much more than a rock and it is...More

It is a special sign for London (Londinium) and just think it is a clear link Rome and the Romans in the land Britannica. I believe that its relevance is snubbed. It happened to me: - I go to Liverpool station, - I go to...More
