What makes this tour special

Discover London’s amazing Natural History Museum, with some of the most famous dinosaur fossils in the world on display. As one of the largest and grandest museums in the world, with a vast display of specimens from all over the world, and 4.6 billion years' worth of history, let your expert private guide navigate you through this overwhelming museum allowing you to relax, and fully absorb its mesmerising displays and stories.

On your private half-day tour your will:

Discover the wonders of our precious planet in London’s amazing Natural History Museum - considered the largest and most important centre for research into natural history and sciences in the world! An architectural masterpiece, it is filled with mind-boggling treasures, from fossils of gargantuan Jurassic beasts of land and sea to the rarest glittering gemstones, and everything in between.

Learn all about the palaeontologists of the 19th century as well as some of the latest research and discoveries, especially about Hope, the giant Blue Whale, whose skeleton hangs from the ceiling in the Hintze Hall and weighs 4.5 tonnes. Scientists have discovered the secrets of the last seven years of her life…

With your expert private guide leading you around this enormous museum, you'll really be able to make the most of your visit and be sure to see all the most important and unmissable features. See the incredible dinosaur display, visit the Mammals Gallery and gawp at the vast proportions of these Jurassic animals: see how you measure up against extinct mammoths, hippos, giraffes, horses and a giant elk!

Discover the mysterious underwater world of pre-historic sea creatures, in the gallery of fossil marine reptiles. You'll learn all about the pioneering work of female palaeontologist Mary Anning and her brother Joseph – and see the many fossils she donated in the early 1800s.

The museum is also highly experiential - with an amazing earthquake simulator and moving plaster casts on the display of a man and a dog who perished during the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.

Learn 4.6 billion years of mind-blowing natural history with your expert guide at the world's best Natural History Museum.
