Children’s Art Competition – Favourite Entries

We are delighted to share with you all our favourite entries so far for this year’s Children Art Competition.

Throughout the year we enjoy treating our young visitors to the history of the sights of London, as well as the surrounding cities:

London Magical Tours guides are specialised in ensuring children have a balanced historical and enjoyable experience, very much valuing the importance of participating in a way that is both fun and educational. There is nothing better than seeing our visitor’s faces light up as they see history brought to life before their eyes, the ideal way to create lasting memories!

Below are some of our favourite entries so far for this year’s competition. Winner will be announced next month with prizes sent out to the winners in time for christmas – so stay tuned!

We are delighted to announce the publishing of London Magical Tours’ very own guidebook for children:

My London Magical A To Z Guide

My London Magical A to Z Guide is the perfect accompaniment to our excursions for all family visits, allowing children to follow the landmarks on their tour through a blend of drawings and clever anecdotes.

Covering many of the famous sites such as Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park, the book also helps young visitors to awaken an interest in London life by introducing central figures like the Monarch and the Prime Minister.

As can be seen in the examples below, every one of the beautiful hand drawn illustrations has been inspired by the artwork of children who take part in our London tours on a daily basis from all corners of the globe:

A big thank you goes out to all the children that submitted entries.  This year has seen the most diverse range of art work than ever before, with some of our young visitors coming from countries as far as Indonesia and Peru, adding a great multicultural element to the competition, reflecting London’s cosmopolitan nature.
