Why You Shouldn't Miss This

The British Museum is the top most visited museum in England and ranks 4th globally in terms of visitors. Covering an area of 75,000 m2 and featuring a collection of over 8 million works, the museum is the perfect place to discover the history of the world from beyond just books. The museum is itself divided into 10 separate sections, each focussing one particular part of world histories such as Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, Britain and the British Empire, Asia, Coins and Medals and more.

The best way to make the most of your British Museum experience is to go with a guide in a small group or if you’re looking for an exclusive treatment, a private tour. Not only will you learn more and discover nuances only known by professionals; but you’ll also know exactly what the most important relics in the museum are and get to spend more time with them than a random passerby.
