We’ve teamed up with the British Museum to celebrate our Middle Eastern heritage and give you the chance to win 2 tickets every week in August to the BP exhibition, Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds.

To win, all you have to do is tell us on Twitter why you’d like to visit and our favourite answer wins! Don’t forget to tag @ComptoirLibanai and #SunkenCities on your tweet.

Supported by BP.

Organised with the Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine and the Hilti Foundation.


Submerged under the sea for over a thousand years, two lost cities of ancient Egypt were recently rediscovered. Their story is told for the first time in this unmissable exhibition.

Vanished beneath the waters of the Mediterranean, the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus lay at the mouth of the Nile. Named after the Greek hero Heracles, Thonis-Heracleion was one of Egypt’s most important commercial centres for trade with the Mediterranean world and, with Canopus, was a major centre for the worship of the Egyptian gods. Their amazing discovery is transforming our understanding of the deep connections between the great ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece.



To draw on our Middle Eastern heritage, we have created an exclusive Fig, Cinnamon and Honey muffin, and if you have a valid ticket for the BP exhibition Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds or a British Museum Membership card, you can have a muffin for free (when you buy a main meal)!
