Fodor's Review

The 17th-century tobacco port of London, on the South River a short car ride from Annapolis, was made up of 40 dwellings, shops, and taverns. London all but disappeared in the 18th century, its buildings abandoned and left to decay, but the excavation of the town is underway, and buildings are continually being restored. One of the few original colonial structures is a three-story waterfront brick house, built by William Brown between 1758 and 1764, with dramatic river

views. Walk around on your own or take a 30-minute docent-led tour; allow more time to wander the house grounds, woodland gardens, and a visitor center with a new interactive exhibit on the archaeology and history of London Town and Anne Arundel County.
