Sunken cities: Egypt's lost worlds

The British Museum has a new major exhibition on the 19th May that explores two lost Egyptian cities and their recent rediscovery by archaeologists beneath the Mediterranean seabed. This will be the Museum's first large-scale exhibition of underwater discoveries. It will show how the exploration of Thonis- Heracleion and Canopus- submerged at the mouth of the River Nile for over a thousand years- is transforming our understanding of the relationship between ancient Egypt and the Greek world and the great importance of these cities.

In light of this spectacular exhibition, discover our Clementine and Coconut Pyramid Cakes in our Central Court and Gallery Cafés. Perfect with a cup of our award winning coffee or loose leaf tea. If looking for afternoon tea or a sit down meal, please see the Great Court Restaurant located at the top of the stairs in the Great Court.
