Hear of their discoveries, by adventurous British explorers, medieval tomb raiders or as spoils of war.
You will see the Rosetta Stone, the Easter Island Moai, the Sutton Hoo, the Lewis Chessmen, and the Parthenon marbles, as well as many other remarkable objects as part of an unmissable day of discovery and mystery.
Then, you’ll enjoy a brief walk through central London, with your guide showing you the best spots to explore after your tour, as you walk to the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square, home to some of the world's most beautiful works of art.
Your guide will navigate you through the vast galleries - architecturally splendid in their own right. Delve beyond the superficial appearance, and gain a deeper understanding of the hidden meanings, mystique and coded messages in some of the world’s most iconic pieces of art.
With over 2300 paintings ranging over 7 centuries and works from some of the most prolific artists, including Da Vinci, Van Gogh, and Holbein, the National Gallery will not fail to ignite your imagination. From Monet's Waterlilies to Van Gogh's Sunflowers, from the Greats of the Italian Renaissance to the most famous equine portrait in the world, Whistlejacket by George Stubbs, you're sure to be bowled over.
Your tour ends inside the National Gallery, but your guide will also take time to tell you where to best spend the rest of the day exploring the area of central London around the gallery.
