Activity description

Delve into London’s most enlightening box of surprises: the British Museum, a space filled with over eight million pieces spanning two million years of human history.

Highlights
- Discover fascinating relics from Ancient Greece and the Egyptians
- See the best of the Museum without losing valuable time

Learn all of the most interesting stories and most fascinating facts of the long tale of humanity on this planet Earth by walking through a breath-taking collection to which no other in the world can compare.

To tour the vastness of the British Museum alone can be a daunting prospect. This tour offers you a carefully crafted itinerary thanks to which you will be able to see all of the most important highlights alongside a charming and knowledgeable guide. They will make your visit all the more interesting by sharing the tales that bring these historical objects to life.

As you navigate through the seventy galleries, you will cross Athenian marbles, Egyptian mummies, Anglo-Saxon treasures and even the infamous Rosetta Stone. Another highlight is bound to be the huge Parthenon Frieze. This sculpture, one metre high yet 160 metres long, is one of the most significant relics of Ancient Greece.

The Egyptian Rooms, with their eerie collection of mummies, are bound to make an impression. Learn all about the importance of death and the afterlife that formed the ancient Egyptian ethos. But just as hair-raising are the artefacts that give us an insight into Anglo-Saxon culture, such as those found at the burial sites of Sutton Hoo. This is more than a tour of a museum; it’s a walk through the pages of history.
