In celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the tomb discovery, the boy king’s priceless tomb artifacts will visit London one final time while a new permanent resting place for the treasures is constructed at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo. TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh features over 150 stunning authentic tomb objects including 60 on display outside Egypt for the first time. This is an absolute must-see cultural event and final opportunity to experience the magic and mystery of Tutankhamun before his treasures return to Egypt forever.
Sunday We depart and travel to Windsor for time at leisure. The Royal Borough has a rich mix of history, culture and heritage to enjoy. You can also visit the town of Eton, famous for its school and situated on the opposite bank of the River Thames and connected by a footbridge. It is also home to Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world. A Royal home and fortress for over 900 years, the Castle remains a working palace today. We depart Windsor later this afternoon for the journey to Maidenhead and the Holiday Inn Maidenhead Windsor. This evening enjoy a three course buffet.
Monday We depart after breakfast and travel into central London and the Saatchi Gallery with included entrance to TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh.

Over 150 stunning authentic tomb objects (60 on display outside Egypt for the first time), will showcase the spectacular artistry of the boy king’s 3,300-year-old treasure and will dazzle audiences of all ages.
