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:
W is for Westminster
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.
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.
Entries for this year’s competition closed on the 31st of October. Continue reading
