The O2, located on the banks of the River Thames in Greenwich will be the home of this long awaited exhibition which returns to London for the first time in 30 years and is expected to be the biggest exhibition the city has ever hosted. Short break specialist, Superbreak (www.superbreak.com) has been appointed to offer short breaks to the exhibition and bookings are now being taken.
The exhibition will run from November 2007 to August 2008. Superbreak will be selling packages that include a hotel and timed entry ticket. Other elements such as return rail travel plus London sightseeing and attractions can also be added.
In 1922, the tomb on Tutankhamun was discovered along with a tomb holding the most magnificent treasures of the Golden Age of the Pharaohs. Giving a glittering glimpse into the past – this is the first time in 30 years the artefacts of the boy-king have left their home in Egypt.
