National Portrait Gallery comp

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.

Delivered in Partnership with Pride of Britain Hotels

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.
