Meet your guide by Old Spitalfields Market, just outside the City of London (London’s historic financial district). Learn the history of the East End as you walk down streets covered in street art. Your guide is one of the most knowledgeable about London’s street artists, and will give you a unique insight into the urban art and graffiti culture of the area.
Wander over from Spitalfields to Brick Lane and the trendy Shoreditch area. Discover street art from around 40 artists, including ROA, Stik, Borondo, Cranio, and many more. Street art by its nature constantly changes, which in turn means that these tours evolve on a regular basis. This guarantees that a tour will always feel fresh.
