What You Can Expect

British Museum Highlights Tour in London including the Rosetta Stone

Take a tour of the British Museum in London!

Your 2.5-hour journey through the some of the world’s great cultural treasures begins in central London, where you’ll meet your guide. Head directly into the British Museum and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to millions of artifacts across more than 70 galleries. Your entrance pass provides complimentary headphones, if needed to better hear your guide.
Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting perhaps with the galleries of Ancient Greece to see the 525-foot (160-meter) long Parthenon Frieze from the Acropolis of Athens, or the Sutton Hoo exhibition to see English treasures and an impressive Anglo-Saxon ship burial. Continue on to the Egyptian galleries to view fascinating mummies, learn about the art of mummification, and hear how death and the afterlife played into Ancient Egyptian culture. Then learn about the Rosetta Stone, an instrumental piece for deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics. (Please note: Viewings of the Rosetta stone are available only on Friday evenings.)
With your small group (limited to 20 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterwards, spend as much time as you’d like exploring the museum independently and enjoying delicious refreshment at one of the museum’s cafés or restaurants (own expense).

What a fun tour. Turid (I hope I and #39;ve got her name right!) was fantastic, energetic, funny. She shows great passion for the museum. I was thrilled to view the Rosetta Stone and thanks to Turid I discovered new treasures and furthered my understanding of treasures I am familiar with.

Ed our guide did a brilliant job of giving us a great tour through history with specific exhibits and showing us the way that different cultures take from each other those beliefs they wish to adopt and assimilate into their own. Ed delivered the facts in an easy manner filled with British humour.
