Yes! As this is England, if we didn’t run the tour on rainy days it would hardly operate at all. However, this tour takes place mostly inside the museum, so the rain should not affect it. Just make sure to have suitable clothing and consider bringing an umbrella if necessary.

Go to the meeting point and look for our guide carrying a red umbrella. If you have any problems finding the location please send us an email at:

Due to the high demand of our tours you can only join the tour if you have made a reservation. So please make a reservation: it is absolutely free, it takes less than one minute. Please note that we can't take groups of 6 people or more on the regular British Museum Tour, for larger groups, please contact us previously.

All our tours are free. That means that at the end of the tour, you can choose to reward the guide if you wish so, according to your enjoyment and your possibilities.
