Discover London's wealth of history and culture in style on a private walking tour of the British Museum and Sir John Soane's Museum, with an expert to guide you. Accompanied by your own private guide who specializes in art history, you'll enjoy personalized attention on your special private tour of two of London's most famous museums.
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 an 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.
