|One of the few reminders of the Walbrook|
The Walbrook cuts through the original Roman city and runs between Cornhill and Ludgate. It formed the eastern boundary of the Roman Londinium, and was completely covered up by 1463.
I do not recommend doing this run during the morning weekday, its probably best done a weekend. Any joy gotten from this walk was diminished quickly by battling the morning rush hour.
Once again, you can find the route here and below are more fun facts and photos!

- Shoreditch was the original theaterland of London. One of the theaters was built for Shakespeare's Company, the Chamberlain's Men. It was up and moved to Southwark and renamed to The Globe in 1598.
- Broadgate sits on what was once a bubonic plague pit, and once when digging up the site found six bodies per cubic metre
- The architect who won the bid to design the interior of Cannon Street Station did so by bribing a British Rail official
