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!

My London Magical A to Z Guide – Children’s Guidebook to London

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

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:

Printed in luxurious hardback form, My London Magical A to Z Guide makes a beautiful souvenir, a memento for every child to customise with their name and date of their London visit to forever be reminded of their sightseeing experience.

Children’s London Art Competition 2009 – Vote Now!

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. Continue reading
