Description

Founded in 1753, the British Museum houses famous artifacts such as the Rosetta Stone and Lewis chessmen, alongside extensive collections of everything from Egyptian mummies to Ancient Greek sculpture. Since celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2003, the museum has attracted more visitors than any other UK institution. With an ever-expanding permanent collection and award-winning temporary exhibitions, the British Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in world history.

The private 90-minute 'Around the World' tour is led by an expert guide from the museum, who'll lead the tour through the galleries of famous objects, as well as the museum's lesser-known treasures.

Follow the tour with a seven-course tasting menu dinner at Alyn Williams, located in Mayfair’s opulent Westbury hotel.
