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.

As a street artist himself, our guide Josh was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. We came away with a much better appreciation for the various different forms of street art and we were lucky to see some artists live in action at the end of our tour. Highly recommended!

Thank you for looking after us and showing us some amazing art as well as a little history of the area. We booked this for my birthday and had an age group from 11 to 70. Everyone enjoys the walk and not even the rain dampened the experience. Thank you very much

Fantastic! Our guide Emily was entertaining, informative and engaging.

I had an amazing time on this tour. Starting off with a brief introduction and history lesson on Shoreditch. Along the way we learned about all different types of street art from brass sculptures to foam mushrooms to stencils. I'd highly recommend doing this tour for anyone who has even the slightest interest in street art. I wish I had of continued on and taken part in the stencil workshop!
