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.
Entries for this year’s competition closed on the 31st of October. With over 550 entries received, the results were truly outstanding and all entrants are to be commended for their efforts.
Like many artists before them, our budding Constables and Van Goghs took inspiration from all corners of London. Their works drew admiring glances from all that saw them. Amongst the most popular spots sketched this year were Trafalgar Square and the view from the Mall leading to Buckingham Palace.
Voting for this year’s winners is now open – don’t forget to vote for your favourite here !
