Hidden Roman ruins in a car park in the City of London

On London Wall, where the Museum of London once stood, you’ll find the remains of a Roman castrum, a fortified camp for soldiers!

London is always full of surprises, and above all, of Roman ruins.
 
Some are still in plain sight, but there are others that are in places you least expect!

You must literally access the underground car park, go through the door next to Coleman Street, and get to lanes 52 to 54.

Here, right between the cars, and now protected by a glass wall erected by the Museum of London, you will find a section of the remains of the fort, which were only discovered in 1957 during some works.
 
Just think, the castrum would have housed up to 1,000 Roman soldiers!

If you’re curious you can watch the video of the Roman ruins in the car park on TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin!
