Superbreak, the UK's online holiday specialists in short breaks, offers budding Egyptologists breaks to London for the launch of the 'Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs' exhibit in November.

'Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs' will be the largest exhibition ever hosted in Britain, and Superbreak offers visitors the chance to book tickets and accommodation early through both its website and a promotion that will reach over 3.2 million homes via a pullout in Saturday's Daily Mail. The exhibition begins on 22nd November 2007 and will (subject to confirmation) be held at The 02 (formerly the millenium dome) in Greenwich over the following 10 months. And with tickets on sale from both Superbreak and over 7000 travel agents across the country, residents in Britain will have no excuse not to visit this fascinating spectacle from Ancient Egypt.

Tutankhamun, the boy Pharaoh from ancient Egypt, was made infamous in 1922 when his tomb was discovered by Howard Carter and his team of expert Egyptologists. The first exhibition of Tutankhamun artefacts left Egypt in the 1970s and provided audiences around the world with a glimpse into the grandeur of ancient Egypt; this new exhibit promises to showcase some of the most spectacular relics from the age of Tutankhamun and other significant Pharaohs, with over 130 priceless items on display.

Superbreak's Tutankhamun break offers customers one adult entry ticket to the exhibition (which includes an audio tour) as well as hotel accommodation in London. People booking a Tutankhamun break with Superbreak will also be able to add a range of extras to their package, such as Rapid River Boat Transfer to The 02, rail tickets from anywhere in the UK, holiday insurance and tickets to some of London's most famous attractions - including the London Eye, Madam Tussauds and many more.

Currently travelling the world, 'Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs' has just closed its run at Chicago's Field Museum, having been visited by over 1, 000, 000 people. The exhibition will next open at the Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia from February to September 2007, before arriving in London in November.
