British Museum: Guided Tours and Talks - FREE - ★★★★★


If you come to London, visiting the British Museum is on everyone's top ten list. The Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Frieze, and all the other amazing wonders... it is impossible to see and appreciate everything on a single visit, but there is help and it's free. The Daily eye-opener tours are our favourites. There are also the Spotlight tours and excellent lunch time talks by guest lecturers or the curators.
