Celebrating 125 years since Tower bridge was built, we will explore its links with London and the importance during the Victorian era. The glass walkway is a hit with Miss Sophie’s and we will have fun learning about different landmarks, before choosing our favourite one to sketch. Come and join us for a day of History and Art by the Thames. Open to all ages 5 up to 11.
A favourite with Miss Sophie’s is a trip to Hampton Court, exploring Tudor cooking with a visit to Henry V111’s kitchens. We will make our own timeline of the famous kings and queens who have visited Hampton Court since Henry V111 and discover how life has changed. The magic garden and maze is a perfect finale to a historical morning!
Marking the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the exhibition brings together more than 200 of the Renaissance master’s greatest drawings in the Royal Collection, forming the largest exhibition of Leonardo’s work in over 65 years.
We will not only learn about Leonardo as an artist, but also as an engineer, scientist and anatomist. We will picnic in St James’ Park and enjoy exploring the wonderful lakes, wildlife and flowers, along with magnifying glasses and sketch pads!
