British Museum Tours

Through The British Museum With The Bible

Would you like to tour the British Museum to see the Bible related items?

Clive Anderson, Glenn Shotton, Dub Gannon and Ian Cooper regularly guide groups around the Museum and you are welcome to join one of these groups.

To join a group?

From the schedule below, select the dates convenient to you. But you must let us know in advance by sending an email to Clive ( Providing that day is not already full Clive will send you details of the day's arrangements.

Arranging your own tour - Group size?

To enable a group to be comfortably taken around the Museum 20 people is the desired maximum. If a larger number is to be catered for then more than one guide is required. We will gladly arrange a separate date for groups of ten or more.

The cost?

Entrance to the British Museum is free and we make no charge for the tours. However, it is appreciated if groups would offset the travel costs which amount to around £35 per guide. Any further gift is left to the group's discretion, but nothing is requested or expected.

Who will lead?

We cannot guarantee which members of the team will be leading a tour on a particular day.
