The London Mithraeum, also known as the Temple of Mithras, Walbrook, is a Roman mithraeum that was discovered in Walbrook, a street in the City of London, during a building's construction in 1954. The entire site was relocated to permit continued construction and this temple of the mystery god Mithras became perhaps the most famous 20th-century Roman discovery in London.

  • The site was really cool. The rest seemed a bit like they were trying to be too cool. It would be better if they had a short introductory video instead of layered audio while you are trying to read the displays. The Roman bath house in London is more worthwhile if you can only pick one. And there is an actual guide who talks through some things that are informative.
  • Fantastic displays of Roman artifacts. The interactive display around the ruins was a little flat for me. Excellent accessibility facilities. Very nicely done though.. was impressed with the set up.
