Jewry Wall Museum, Leicester

On the other side of the Roman bath remains from the Jewry Wall stands the Jewry Wall Museum. In fact it was partly built on those remains in, as the photograph suggests, the era of concrete, underpasses and pedestrian walkways - 1966, to be precise.

Still, it is well worth a visit, as it houses Roman mosaics and wall paintings found under the city, floor tiles and masonry from Leicester Abbey and the 'prehistoric families' made for the Festival of Britain in 1951.
