A whistlestop tour of the British Museum

Elgin Marbles Elgin Marbles - © The Trustees of the British Museum
2/6

For a real 'wow' factor, cross over to the Parthenon Gallery (Room 18) and take in the yards of toned bods that make up the Elgin Marbles. These sculptures are from the Parthenon in Athens and showed off the city's power and wealth at the height of its empire. Wipe away a tear as you reflect upon our nation's great talent for plunder.
