What to expect

Whether you’re a hardcore history buff or just curious as to how London became one of the world’s most important cities, you’ll be delighted with this 5-hour guided combo tour!

You'll be awestruck by the vast collection of the British Museum and also uncover the stories behind the urban landscape of central London. You'll get a more personal experience on a semi-private tour of no more than 8 guests and at the end of the tour enjoy a day well spent by relaxing in a traditional British pub!

At the British Museum you'll explore the extensive collection that spans 6000 years of human history, featuring items from every corner of the world. Your guide will take a serious but enjoyable approach towards the museum’s galleries, discussing primitive tribes and forgotten empires through a carefully curated selection of exhibits. Discover Samurai armor and centuries’ old Assyrian lion hunt reliefs, the Mummy of Katebet, and the Rosetta Stone.

You'll learn about Chaucer at Westminster Abbey and visit the home of the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street. This small-group tour will pass through the lush green parks, bustling crowds, and manicured squares that make up the fascinating urban landscape. Discuss Big Ben at the House of Parliament and pass through the famed Trafalgar Square.
