You get to see so many things you'd never find on your own. Also you get lots of information as well technical as background information on personalities and history of street art. Best tour I did in London - Thanks so much!

The tour was very interesting, very informative and eye opening. We were looking for something a little different that would still show us London in a fun and cool way and got exactly that. Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed the tour. The guide made a point that it is not a strictly street art tour, though the bulk of it is. Our tour was cut just a little short due to some rough weather, but was a great tour of East London and gave me a new appreciation for street art.

Great for people who want to have their brain cells jiggled about, their minds wedged open, their opinions challenged and who generally have a healthy thirst for life. A brilliant tour containing everything from history, street art, politics and all served up with a big dollop of humour care of the brilliant host Doug. You must go on this tour... More

This got booked by another colleague on a team-building day. As soon as I heard what we were doing, I was intrigued, but the actual experience exceeded all expectations. The walk took about 45 mins, but as I understand it, it can be scalable to any given groups needs. As well as showing you individual pieces, its a very informative... More

Amazing what you see when you open your eyes, not only the larger images on walls but also the seemingly insignificant pieces of chewing gum stuck to the pavement, (you'll understand when you do the tour). I did the Street Art Workshop, by the way. Rachael, an excellent guide, who encouraged us, not only to look in the most obvious... More

We were shown round bye one of the many talented artists called Rae smith and it was amazing. If you have been on this trip you will already know all the amazing pieces you get to see including banksy if not then I highly recommend paying a visit. There is also a very good workshop after the walking tour.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
