Stay in Whitechapel, in the heart of London's East End

Join us on this fascinating visit to London and this sensational exhibition dedicated to the life of the most famous ‘boy king’.

This exhibition will feature the largest number of King Tutankhamun treasures ever to leave Egypt and organisers say it is unlikely ever to happen again. The Saatchi Gallery in London has been announced as the only UK venue for this amazing world tour of 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which have never left Egypt before. The tour marks the upcoming centenary of the sensational discovery of the boy pharaoh’s tomb by British explorer Howard Carter in 1922.

London is a fabulous city to visit. No matter what your interest, this buzzing metropolis will have something to fascinate and enchant you. From street markets to historic monuments, incredible museums & galleries through to dance, cinema and theatre London never disappoints. For those that love their food and drink, London offers unparallelled options with virtually every cuisine on earth available somewhere in this great city for budgets to suit every size of wallet. Getting around is easy too with an extensive bus network, the underground, taxis and of course those famous Boris Bikes...unless you’d just like to walk and take in the atmosphere including the beautiful and tranquil Royal Parks which provide a welcome oasis and rest from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Tutankhamun Exhibition

This exhibition will feature the largest number of King Tutankhamun treasures ever to leave Egypt and organisers say it is unlikely ever to happen again. The Saatchi Gallery in London has been announced as the only UK venue for this amazing world tour of 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which have never left Egypt before.

The objects will include a gold inlaid miniature coffin which contained the king’s liver after it was removed during the mummification process, a gilded wooden bed with carved lion feet probably made specially for Tutankhamun’s funeral and a gilded wooden shrine showing intimate scenes of royal domestic harmony. One of two lifesized guardian statues of the king, which flanked the sealed entrance to his burial chamber, will also be among the artefacts leaving Cairo for the first time.
