A last chance to see these treasures before they return to their new permanant home in Egypt

London is brimming with brilliant attractions, beautiful landmarks and the best city parks in the world. Add the River Thames to this enticing picture and the capital offers everything for the visitor.

Discover hidden streets and stumble upon (and out of) charming English pubs - there are hundreds scattered along the river and tucked away in London's villages. History and culture wait around every corner.

London is one of the culture capitals of the world and is brimming with exciting things to see and on this tour we visit the Saatchi Gallery to view the amazing artefacts and treasures found in the Boy King, Tutankhamun's, tomb, the exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb, and is the final chance to see these glittering world heritage artefacts before they return to Egypt forever. Explore the life of King Tutankhamun, and the discovery that captivated the world, through more than 150 authentic pieces from the tomb - three times the quantity that has travelled in previous exhibitions - more than 60 of which are travelling outside of Egypt for the first time.
