Just how historic is London, England?

It's a bit of a cliche that London, UK, is a tourist trap, but this website really brought it home to me.

The following are well-known areas in London, and most have subway stations...

New Gate
Aldersgate
Moor Gate
Bishops Gate

But just how historic are these areas?

Scroll down for the answer and a link to the website for old London maps.

















All the above date back to at least AD190.
See the attached image for an AD190 map of London, England.

Some of the sites on London's subway system date back over 1,800 years.
