Highlights

  • Performed in French, English

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 interesting information about the many treasures you will see, including the famous Rosetta Stone, the Egyptian Mummies and sculptures from the Parthenon.



Next to the British Museum is the Sir John Soane Museum, which is none other than the most intimate and eccentric London house you will ever visit. One of Britain's most individual architects, Sir John Soane (1753 – 1837) bequeathed an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture, antiquities and architectural fragments. You will see Hogarth Rake's Progress and the artworks of Canaletto, Turner and Piranesi.

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

Please note: The Sir John Soane Museum is closed on Sundays and on Mondays you will spend more time in the British Museum.
