This is a one hour interactive virtual tour, and will be presented in small groups via Zoom. Watch the tour trailer here!

  • Explore how humans have failed to honour God’s Divine Name
  • See what archaeology confirms about Abraham's city of Ur
  • Examine the Bible's accuracy of the Esther account
  • Learn from the good and bad historical examples of famous names in the Bible
  • See evidence from the British Museum, Musée du Louvre, and the Bible lands.

This tour features entirely new content and objects we have never used before.  We really hope you enjoy learning about the reputations and historical background of many well known Bible characters, and the names they made with God.

We use 3D images, maps, artists' impressions, and a unique walk-through view of the British Museum, this feels like you are actually visiting in person with one of our experienced guides. We also maintain small group sizes so you can interact as we discover the fascinating links to the Bible.

London's most experienced Bible Tours team is very happy to offer tours with the smallest essential booking fee possible.  We were given specific permission to offer virtual tours in this way by the British Museum back in April 2020.

Please use our easy online booking system in advance.  If the slots are full, we will be working hard to release more tour dates and times, we don't want anyone to miss out.

Please note our tours are not designed to replace any aspect of regular worship or spiritual instruction. We do not use any images or copyright material found in the publications or on jw.org for obvious reasons. We conduct these tours in the same way that we did when we were offering in-person tours in the British Museum, alongside other commercial tour groups.

We feature The Royal Game of Ur on this tour, you might like to play it yourself for free using this link.

  • Smart attire: Please dress as smart as you reasonably can, but we do not have a strict dress code.
  • Bible, notepad and pen, JW Library: All items are optional, but we strongly recommend a Bible in some format.
  • No camera: Please note that no video or audio recordings are allowed.  Tour material must not be published online or shared in any other format.

Please join the Zoom meeting 10 minutes before your tour is scheduled to begin.  You will receive the details by email, no later than 48 hours before your tour is scheduled to begin.  Please check your junk and spam mail.

We have to charge a small £3 booking fee per connection.  This is only to help cover essential costs such as the website, legal taxes, booking system, Zoom, British Museum support, and many other necessary requirements.

None of the guiding team are paid, which is why we are able to essentially offer free tours, and it is our pleasure to do so.  If you wish to give a voluntary tip to your guide, you will receive a link to do so along with your Zoom details.

Unlike other groups that have hundreds of connections and charge much more, quality is our priority, so that our small groups of approximately 30 connections can interact with the friends from all over the world.  Since we started virtual tours back in April 2020, we have managed to make our prices even lower.  If you would like more details about why we charge, and to see a breakdown of the costs, please click here.

All of our JW guides are thoroughly trained and regularly present our well known Bible Tours.  Our main priority is to show as many people as possible the incredible artefacts and Bible history that is in the British Museum, so please tell your friends and family.

Officially the booking fee is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible and we can easily reschedule or refund in many cases.

This tour is currently available in over 10 languages.  To see a list of all languages we offer, please click here.
