Visit the British Museum in chauffeur-driven luxury

The British Museum

The first national public museum of the world

Enjoy chauffeur-driven travel to the British Museum, one of the UK’s most visited tourist attractions. The British Museum is a public museum dedicated to human history, art and culture located in the Bloomsbury area of London. Its permanent collection of eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence. It documents the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

The British Museum was founded in 1753 and opened its doors in 1759. It was the first public national museum in the world. Enlightenment ideals and values – critical scrutiny of all assumptions, open debate, scientific research, progress and tolerance – have marked the Museum since its foundation.

At the centre of the British Museum sits the largest covered public square in Europe, the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court. Designed by Foster and Partners, it is a two-acre space enclosed by a spectacular glass roof with the world-famous Reading Room in the middle.

“When I die there may be a paragraph or two in the newspapers. My name will linger in the British Museum Reading Room catalogue for a space at the head of a long list of books for which no one will ever ask.”
