London’s roots lie in the walled Roman settlement of Londinium, established in AD 43 on the northern banks of the River Thames, roughly on the site of today’s City. Few traces of it survive outside museums, though you can see the relocated Temple of Mithras , built in AD 240, at the eastern end of Queen Victoria St in the City. Stretches of the Roman wall remain as foundations to a medieval wall outside Tower Hill tube station and in a few sections below Bastion Highwalk, next to the Museum of London.
