We have teamed up with The National Portrait Gallery to offer you a pair of tickets to their ground-breaking exhibition The Encounter: Drawings from Leonardo to Rembrandt.
We're giving you the chance to see 50 drawings from Britain’s finest collections by artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Holbein and Rembrandt.
The Encounter: Drawings from Leonardo to Rembrandt brings together outstanding masterpieces of the Renaissance and Baroque, many rarely seen, and some not displayed for decades.
It's the must-see exhibition which gives you the chance to see hidden treasures. Exploring the encounter between artist and sitter, The Encounter highlights the importance of drawing in the artistic process.
Your prize will also include a copy of the exhibition catalogue and afternoon tea for two at the gallery's beautiful Portrait Restaurant, which boasts views across London.
See our events page for further details about the exhibition itself.
As part of your break in London, you will be treated to a one-night stay in one of The Goring's Belgravia Suites, with English breakfast the following morning.
Impeccably English and perfectly individual, The Goring features 69 sumptuous suites and rooms, each uniquely decorated with the ﬁnest furnishings. With a Michelin-starred restaurant and a world-renowned afternoon tea, The Goring offers stunning yet relaxed dining.

Located in Belgravia, it is perfectly placed for London’s spectacular sights and style. The iconic walls of Buckingham Palace border the area and nearby Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Sloane Street make for a fashionable stay.
