“Outstanding. Intelligent, articulate and friendly. You feel involved and inspired, not just led around. His British Museum tour is the only one you really need to do.”

“An in-depth look at the Museum highlights with lots of interesting anecdotes. Highly recommended.”

We’ll visit ancient Egypt and unlock the secrets of the Rosetta Stone and the gruesome process of mummification; marvel at the intricate details of Assyrian friezes, and be as impressed as our ancestors were with the beauty and dynamism of the sculptures from the Parthenon. We’ll also look at treasures from the farthest reaches of the Roman Empire – Sudan and Britain.

  • Rosetta Stone
  • Colossal Statue of Rameses II
  • Ancient Egyptian Mummies
  • Assyrian Lamassu and Friezes
  • Parthenon Marbles (the “Elgin Marbles’)
