Our group of one adult and four teenagers all equally enjoyed our Street Art Walking Tour with Kea. He is incredibly knowledgeable and personable, pointing out subtle pieces of street art everywhere we turned along with history of the artists. I had no idea of the culture behind the art. The tour flew by and we were blessed with great weather which made it even more enjoyable. I'll never look at a piece of gum crushed on a sidewalk the same! Highly recommend!

Gary walked us through Shoreditch history, graffiti and street art scene. His stories are authentic, full of interesting details and sparked ideas and conversations. The tour is super engaging and we could have spent the whole afternoon going from place to place and learning more about street and graffiti artists. The workshop that followed enabled us to learn, understand and apply some of the techniques, it was super hands on and fun!
Highly recommended when you visit London.

Monsoon like rain didn’t dampen our spirits and as the bike tour had to be cancelled because of the rain we took a walking tour and workshop. Led by Gary the tour was fascinating and inspiring giving us a real insight into the street artist world .

The workshop gave us a chance to show our ‘limited ‘ skills !!and also really appreciate the amazing skill levels of the artists.

Highly recommended on any trip to London

The highlight of our recent trip to London, we all loved the tour. Gary was really knowledgeable about the area and it’s rich history as well as the street art we were discovering. The workshop afterwards was really fun, we had with us two kids aged 13 and 11; we all really enjoyed ourselves. No hesitation in recommending Alternative London.

I had such a great time with Emily (fantastic guide!), the content of the tour is perfect - super informative and yet accessible for street art newbies - and the workshop is so much fun. It would be missing out not to do the workshop after the tour, you can play around with some of the techniques you've seen in the street and feel like the real deal (even though you're not at all...). Thanks for everything Emily.

Had a fantastic day up in London on the Street Art tour and workshop with my family (2 adults and 2 kids 11 and 13). Gary was a brilliant guide and had so much knowledge which was really interesting. We also took part in the workshop which was a great end to the tour. We all loved it and would recommend it for sure. Something a bit different which we will remember as a great day out.

Yesterday my husband and I did the street art tour and workshop. I purchased it as a gift for my husband. Emilie was our tour guide and we thought she was great, very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the tour and having some hands on experience in the workshop. We were really pleased with the artwork we created to take home. Would definitely recommend.
