Our annual Magical Christmas Tours are back!
As part of these tours all children are encouraged to write letters to Father Christmas, sharing with him their experience in London.
Here’s an example of what Samantha, aged 9 from Queensland, Australia had to say about her Magical Christmas Tour:

Enjoy a visit to London this December- as the winter days draw in, the city is lit up in spectacular style. Shoppers fill the streets under an endless canopy of lights as carollers gather around the capital’s Christmas trees, making this truly the most wonderful time of the year.
Get into the spirit of the season with our Christmas themed London tours running from 1st November 2010 – 6th January 2011. For more information visit:
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
