About London Roman Fort
The London Roman Fort was built in around 120 AD – around the same time as Hadrian’s Wall – to house the soldiers of Roman Britain’s most important town of the time, Londinium.
Covering around 12 acres in its heyday, the London Roman Fort would have been a square complex similar in architecture – but around three times the size of – forts such as those of Housesteads and Chester. It was probably home to around 1,000 soldiers.
The pin on the map shows the section of the London Roman Fort found on Noble Street, which would have been its southwest corner. Other parts of the fort are contained underground, notably in an underground car park nearby.
For information, ask the Museum of London, which also hosts tours of this site.
The London Roman Amphitheatre was built in the first century AD and is the only one of its kind in the city.
