See World Landmarks Created From Sand

Ever been astounded by the work of a sand sculptor on the beach? How they create such intricate shapes from a material which annoys the heck out of us is beyond our comprehension.

If you're impressed by such things, you're in luck. Three of the world's best sand sculptors are coming to London to create five of the world's top landmarks from sand, and the public can see them for free.

A five-sided sand sculpture will be built on Peter's Hill (near St Paul's Cathedral). A different famous world landmark will be chiselled into it each day for five days. Spend a while watching the sculptors work, or go along at home time to see the end result.

The event marks the launch of new travel book Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travelist. Pop down and try to guess which landmarks are being created for a chance to win a copy of the book.

Sand sculpting takes place 18-22 August at Peter's Hill near St Paul's Cathedral.
