March 2023 UPDATE
The recent governing body update announced that selected Bethels would resume tours from June 1, 2023. We still have no confirmed date for when London Bethel will reopen, but we are making preparations. The financial landscape has changed dramatically in the 3+ years since we last ran a trip, and so we intend to operate a research trip before taking any other confirmed bookings, but we are happy to receive enquiries in the meantime.

Museum tours continue to be available from our sister company Bible Tours and you can be kept notified of our own developments by signing up to our newsletter.
