Here be dragons at Hampton Court Palace

Here Be Dragons, Hampton Court Palace 2019

Six dragons were on display around Hampton Court Palace. Intrepid dragon hunters recognised the sculptures from last year’s trail in the gardens of Kew Palace.

Here Be Dragons began life as a CBBC Blue Peter competition for children aged 6 – 15 years old. There were more than 8,000 entries and the competition was judged by author Cressida Cowell.

The five Top Runner-Up designs were created into dragon sculptures by Wild in Art artists. In summer 2019, they were all on display at Hampton Court Palace alongside the winner’s design.
