  1. Hello from Austin, Texas USA. I’m visiting London in March, but unfortunately flying out on the 18th when you have your meet-up. I’m wondering if anyone has recommendations for best places to sketch (good views of important landmarks, not too crowded, etc.). We’re staying in the Notting Hill area but will be all over London over ten days. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

  2. Hi Sheila, welcome to London. If you look through the details of previous sketchcrawls in the blog archive on the right of this page you will see a wide range of locations with ideas for sketching. I hope you are inspired! You might also look at our book, available above, which is full of sketches around the capital, many of them reflecting the wide range of opportunities here.
