Mithras - London Mithraeum

A newspaper article in November 2017 which caught my attention

Crowds in 1954

I went to London and walked across the road from Cannon Street station

And there behind me was the site of the London Mithraeum:
12 Walbrook, London EC4N 8AA

From another angle

Entry is free, but with a timed ticket; I was handed this booklet on entry

Built on a special place

What to see

Descend through time - an extraordinary sensation as I went down many steps to the past

There was the altar

From another angle

Base of one original door post, near my feet

On current ground level

A closer look at some of the finds

Beautiful fragments

I had a fascinating and memorable visit; details can be found at https://www.londonmithraeum.com

After my visit I walked along and down College Hill

Richard Whittington's Church

Round the corner was the entrance to St. Michael's Church, and the offices of The Mission to Seafarers, at St. Michael Paternoster Royal, College Hill, London EC4R 2RL
