The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 neighbourhoods. 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 neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of 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.

While London has had a long history, it was the Romans who truly put the city on the world map but building a significant settlement in area. Needless to say, protection was needed for the young town and the natural thing to do was to build a wall around it. Stone soon replaced wood in the construction, and what's seen today at around the Tower Hill station is one of only several places left where the original Roman wall hasn't been dismantled, buried or incorporated into adjacent construction. This site had a useful information plaque next to it explaining the wall's origin - very useful as otherwise, it's easy to ignore without realising its history.

What a pleasant surprise in front of the Tower Hill subway. A statue of Trajan and part of an original Roman wall with plaque represent a 5-10 minute pause to remind people of London's foundation by the Romans as Londinium.

We happened upon a bit of the London Wall near Tower Hill Underground station.
There was a plaque with information about this part of the wall.
Very interesting if you enjoy history ( like my husband does)
