East London is home to a thriving street art scene that constantly changes — colorful graffiti are regularly removed by the council, rendering Shoreditch and Spitalfields’ art ephemeral. On this 2-hour walking tour, you’ll visit current street art and learn about East London’s rich artistic heritage. Stroll the iconic Brick Lane, passing Indian restaurants and vintage shops, and capture amazing images on your camera. Small-group tour, limited to 15 people.
