Description

Since the British Museum opened over 250 years ago, visitors have flocked to the galleries to view the world’s most-prized cultural artifacts. The wide-ranging collection boasts the Parthenon Marbles, Sutton Hoo burial treasure and Lewis chessmen, alongside award-winning exhibitions.

Get insight into the famous objects as well as lesser-known treasures on the ‘Around the World’ 90-minute tour led by an expert guide. With an ever-expanding permanent collection and award-winning temporary exhibitions, the British Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in world history.

After the tour, pop quite literally over the road to Bloomsbury's beautiful Montague on the Gardens Hotel for a South African wine tasting of Bouchard Finlayson wines. As one of the only venues in London to stock Bouchard, the Montague presents a unique opportunity to sample wines such as the acclaimed Hannibal blend, rated 99/100 by the South African Wine Index. Enjoy two reds and one white, each paired with South African-themed canapés - meaty, BBQ and grilled national cuisine made using traditional 'bry' cooking methods, for an authentic South African experience.

Perfect for culture vultures and oenophiles alike, this wonderful day out in quiet, leafy Bloomsbury will send you back in time and around the world, from London to Cape Town, all in an afternoon.
