Full description
Enjoy a 2-hour walking tour of one of London’s most vibrant areas, and discover the alternative scenes of fashionable East London. 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.

Your was really interesting and Natalie was a great guide. I’m sure I won’t remember all the artist names but will be more aware as I walk around and hope to recognise certain artists or styles. It was also interesting to hear how others in the group viewed the same piece.

Loved this tour. Josh our guide had brilliant knowledge of the area and gave us an insight not only into the current graffiti around east London streets but also the motivation and risk behind the life of a graffiti artist and why they do what they do! Totally recommend!
