The area
Address
Neighborhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
How to get there
  • Tower Hill • 1 min walk
  • Tower Gateway • 2 min walk

Next to the Tower of London the Roman wall goes somewhat unnoticed (the remains rather), but you get an idea of the location of the Roman city of Londinium. It is incredible that after so much time and so many social and war events, some canvases of the Roman wall remain. It is to be respected that the English also recognize their past as part of the Roman Empire like so many European and African countries.

It is freely accessible as it is on the same street.

This is a warning to anyone planning to use London Wall underground Car Park at a weekend:
a) in spite of what the website says between 1:30pm Sat & 06:00am Monday it is NOT £3.50 per 'visit' but £3.50 per 'calendar day'. We parked at 9:30pm Sat and left at 10:10pm Sunday (i.e. one 'visit') but got charged £7.00 foe 2 days. When I emailed the car park to point this out the reply was just a copy of the website so obviously either hadn't read my email or didn't care. At least I got a reply!
However £3.50 per day is still great value for an excellent car park providing you can find your way when you leave
b) the car park is in the Congestion Zone which now applies to ALL vehicles every day up to 10:00pm @ £15 per day. Hefty minimum £80 per day fine if you have not registered your car with TFL beforehand which is quick and easy to do. £10 annual registration fee too.
Oh - and by the way London Wall and especially the Museum are great too!

We were looking for a self guided walk and chose to do this from the Tower of London to Museum of London. What's still standing is impressive but the directions on the website are not easy to follow on a phone and some plaques have been removed or covered up. Still a nice walk though

Decided to walk the wall footprint for something to do since there’s little we haven’t seen in the city. There is very little of the wall remaining so one is really walking along the road where the wall used to be. We couldn’t even find some of the plaques. The area with the most remaining wall was near the Barbican. The London wall wouldn’t be high on my list of thing to see if I was making a recommendation to somebody wanting to visit the city.

Short but significant piece of wall that surrounded the old Roman settlement here in London. Roman ruins are not so common in this wonderfully historic city, so great to see this.
Just 5 mins from the Tower of London.

Roman wall built by the same more than 2000 years ago. Of course, there are not much left and you can see it spread around the city. However, it is amazing that something some old is still standing. You can see on the wall the structure and see how it was built.

Find a self guided walking tour and have a wander around the city to see the original London wall. You can see it in lots of spots, mostly neat the Barbican. There is a lot to see around it too.

It's not much to look at... but the history is mind-boggling. This unassuming wall that thousands of people stream past without a glance as they emerge from the Tower Hill tube station is a fragment of the original Roman wall of Londinium. 1000 years older than the Tower of London across the street and Still Standing! Give it a tip of the hat on your way to the Tower.

There are a few sections of the original Roman wall to see near Tower Hill, but they are easy to overlook or miss unless you know they're there. If you do notice them, you see that they are large and impressive. Much of what you're looking at is a medieval addition on top of the original wall, but the lower parts are Roman, and the change in construction is immediately obvious (the Romans were engineers beyond comparison). There are actually short sections that have been incorporated into buildings all along the old Roman city outline through London, but the easiest to spot are near Tower Hill (the original outer wall of the Tower is at the east end of the city wall). If you have an interest, go online and find a map showing the outline of the old city wall, and compare it to a modern map to see where else parts remain. The site is open and free.

The Romans have left their mark all over Europe, here in London also. A great piece of history in the middle of a busy town. Nice, but I wouldn`t travel across town for this. If you are in the neighbourhood it is nice to see
