2-Hour British Museum Guided Tour

British Museum
In the heart of London exists a treasure box, filled with objects spanning all continents and centuries of human civilization. This treasure box is called The British Museum, which houses over eight million pieces spanning two million years of human history, contained in a seemingly limitless space of nearly one million square feet.

Touring the British Museum without a guide to lead the way can be a daunting task. On our specially designed itinerary of the highlights, your knowledgeable guide, an expert passionate about the British Museum and its treasures, will keep you engaged by sharing the history and anecdotes that bring these ancient objects to life. Relax and take in the beauty of the wonders contained inside as your guide skilfully navigates you through the seventy galleries housing Athenian marbles, Egyptian Mummies, and Anglo Saxon treasures.

You’ve probably heard of Rosetta Stone as language learning program, but what you probably didn’t know was that this is a real stone that played an instrumental role in deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Another sure highlight is the enormous Parthenon Frieze. Just over three feet high and 525 feet long, this incredible sculpture once stood in the Acropolis in Athens and is one of the most important surviving relics of classical Greece.

Another group of must see highlights are the Egyptian Rooms, with their impressive collection of mummies. Your guide will explain the importance of death and the afterlife in Ancient Egyptian culture as you witness this incredible piece of human history in person.

The museum also contains a wonderful selection of artifacts representing the Anglo Saxon culture, such as those found at the burial sites of Sutton Hoo. Your guide will share the amazing story of how these objects survived the centuries and the grave robbers, making them an improbable find.
