British Museum

Right in the heart of London stands one of the world’s greatest museums of human antiquity and culture: the British Museum. This renowned menagerie is home to some of the world’s most prized artefacts and is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest collections in the world. Its massive archive includes the sarcophagi of King Tut and Cleopatra from Thebes, sculptures from the Parthenon in Athens, sculptures from the Battlefield Palette, the Amarna tablets, and thousands of other precious relics. An exploration of the British Museum’s extensive collection will surely take a willing soul back in time.

  • Kick off your tour of the British Museum by going to Room 4 of the Egyptian Gallery that houses the world- renowned Rosetta Stone, an artefact that led to the translation of hieroglyphics.
  • Marvel at the majesty of the Elgin Marbles, which are rare classical Greek marble sculptures, bought from Lord Elgin in 1816, since stirring a considerable amount of controversy amidst calls for London to return them to Greece.
  • Drop by the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court at the British Museum and be amazed at London’s largest covered public square, which boasts a spectacular European architectural design.

The British Museum is very accessible via London’s system of public transports. You can reach it via underground stations in Tottenham Court Road, Holborn, Russell Square, and Goodge Street. If trains are too inconvenient for you, you can hitch a ride on buses that ply their route along New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road, and Southampton Row. Taxis are always available for hire, but you might rent a bicycle to enjoy a scenic ride through Regent’s Park, which is just near the British Museum.

Very Average for the price
