We receive so many fantastic drawings from children on our tours to London and this month we would like to share the talented illustrations of our younger artists Harry and Jake Sargood from Australia (ages 10 and 11) on their visit to the Tower of London.
Children are encouraged to draw their favourite parts of London and the very best will be featured on the London Magical Tours Blog and entered as finalists, with the winners receiving a special prize in time for Christmas 2014.
Keep reading the blog for updates to see our young artist’s work throughout the year!

The London Magical Tours’ annual Children’s Art Competition has been another roaring success. Entries for the 2010 competition closed at the end of October, with a record number of drawings and creations received from our budding artists.
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.
Of all the entries received, we are now happy to announce the 2010 finalists for the two different age categories. Click on the link below to see their great work up close.

Every year hundreds of children visit the capital as part of our London tours; many come with their parents and brothers and sisters, while others visit as part of school and missionary groups. Our youngest visitor so far this year has been Daniel Mclean from Massachussetts, USA – a mere 3 months old!
All children on our Private London Tours are given the option to take part in our annual London Art Competition. Our London guides encourage children to make a sketch of anything London related which catches their eye during the course of a tour. Sketch folders and pencils are always readily available, with prizes awarded at the end of each year.
