Museums and Galleries with a private guide



London has some of the finest collections in the world. Enjoy a visit with your own personal guide to show you the highlights and put it all in context. Options include:

The National Gallery houses one of the world's finest collections of western art from C14th to 1900. Explore it with us and see the history of western art unfold before your eyes! Around the corner is the National Portrait Gallery, a fascinating glimpse into the history of Britain through portraiture.

Tate Modern, the world’s most popular modern art gallery, wonderfully housed in a redeveloped 1950s power station. From there take a special Tate boat up-river to visit the ‘sister’ gallery, Tate Britain, which features British art from C15th-present day. Alternatively enjoy our Southwark or St Paul’s Cathedral tours.

The British Museum celebrates world culture including the Parthenon Marbles, Egyptian Mummies & the Rosetta Stone. See the exquisite findings from the C7th ship burial in England and find out how Assyrian carvings redefined ideas on the origin of high art. There's even something to delight Harry Potter fans!

The Victoria and Albert Museum, is the world's greatest collection of decorative art and design. Explore the British Galleries, a comprehensive collection of British design and art from 1500 to 1900, plus the amazing cast courts and Raphael’s cartoons for the Sistine Chapel.

The Wallace Collection features famous paintings, ceramics, arms, armour and furniture in a fine London mansion with a courrtyard restaurant. One of London's gems!

Foundling Museum and Dickens’s House Visit the Museum in tribute to the work of Captain Thomas Coram and find out the connection with the painter William Hogarth, the composer George Frederick Handel and the writer Charles Dickens, whose London home nearby is now a museum. See where Dickens lived with his wife and beloved sister-in-law, furnished as it would have been during his lifetime. Hear more about Dickens life and the experiences which he included in his novels. Why not extend your tour to include the Handel House museum as well?


Let us introduce you to the many treasures in London's small, specialist collections that even many Londoners don't know of. Mention your own particular interests or let us suggest some of our favourites. This could include the Garden Museum, the Museum of Childhood, the Hunterian Museum of medical curiosities and Sir John Soanes Museum, the architect's specially designed home crammed with his extraordinary collection of objects.
