Visit the Roman temple to worship the god Mithras

London has a history of nearly 2,000 years and was a town before the Romans attacked England. They turned this place into a fortified city and brought with it a mysterious belief. Mithras temple, built in 300 was discovered in 1954.

Today, visitors can explore the temple in a private museum below Bloomberg's European headquarters. The temple was restored to look like it was excavated for the first time. Here, visitors can listen to the recording presentation, in the dim light and haze.

Drinking coffee in Victorian toilets

Fitzrovia is a cafe you should visit when you come to London. In Victorian times, this space was a public toilet. The old urinal (cleaned) is now maintained and became a highlight in the shop. Another reason to visit the cafe is the exquisitely designed entrance, which makes many people think this is a working public restroom.

Rowing on the Thames River

You can even go through the Hampton Court Palace - the residence of King Henry VIII. The tour usually lasts 2 or 4 hours, priced at 36 and 60 pounds.

Stroll on The Line art street

The Line is a road that stretches from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, east London to The O2 area in Greenwich. It displays a variety of interesting public artworks along Meridian Road. Walking on this street is a great way to exercise, watch the London creeks (you can cross the Thames by cable car) and enjoy the works of art of Damien Hirst or Antony Gormley. To go all the way you will take about 2 and a half hours.

Explore the historic Magnificent Seven cemetery

Magnificent Seven is the common name of 7 giant cemeteries surrounding central London. Initially, the cemetery was built to reduce the small burial sites flooded in the 19th century.

The highlight among them is Highgate Cemetery, bringing the most unique architecture in the country. Tombs and memorials bring a peaceful and quiet beauty amidst crowded London. The entire cemetery is designed in neoclassical architecture combined with Gothic.
