Discover why some of the most talented London artists eschew the galleries on this guided street art walking tour, where arts enthusiasts can even practice techniques common to street art. Join your guide on an art walk, where you see examples of some of the best pieces in the city. Then try your hand at stenciling and spray painting yourself, with a local artist to show you the basics.
