Highlights

  • Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Led by an art historian
  • All entrance fees included
The British Museum is one of the largest museums in the world, comparable only to the Louvre in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Your expert guide will provide illuminating insights into the many treasures you will see, including the famous Rosetta Stone, Egyptian mummies and sculptures from the Parthenon.

Close to the British Museum is Sir John Soane's Museum, perhaps the most intimate and eccentric London house you'll have the opportunity to visit. One of the most individual British architects, Sir John Soane (1753 - 1837) bequeathed it to the nation with its extensive collection of paintings, sculptures, antiquities and architectural fragments. You'll see Hogarth's Rake's Progress and artworks by Canaletto, Turner and Piranesi.

This in-depth private walking tour is hosted by an expert guide specializing in art history. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.

Please note: Sir John Soane's Museum is closed on Sunday and Monday, so more time will be spent in the British Museum on these days.

Great day with a very erudite lady of my senior vintage! A great way to learn and not get lost!

Rosa Maria (my guide) was amazing. I highly recommend this tour! Our time together went so fast. She was so knowledgeable and she catered the tour to my interests. While we saw popular items, she showed me things I would have missed in the museum. The Soane museum was so fascinating. We could have easily spent 5 hours on the tour!
