Travel bucket list idea:

London Mithraeum

Last updated: 28 April, 2024

Only discovered in 1954 during the rebuilding of London after The Blitz, these fascinating remains of a Roman temple dedicated to the god Mithras date back to the 3rd century AD.

The temple and was likely used as a place of worship and initiation for the secretive Mithraic cult. Visual, light and sound effects, along with thousands of Roman artefacts also found during excavations, transport you back to the site in AD 240.
