The alternative walking tour across the streets of East London is a must-do in London. Interesting stories, great street art - a fun afternoon.

A big thanks to Keir for the amazing tour on Saturday, 4 May – We got an in-depth introduction to East London’s history and a captivating presentation on the surrounding street art, honestly the best 2.5 hours ever spent and his passion is contagious!

We had spent the previous day seeing all of the regular sites in London, so this was a nice way to get off the beaten path. The tour was absolutely amazing. Our Tour Guide, Gary, was very informative this tour has definitely done their research. As much as it is a tour about the amazing street art scene it is also a tour of East London, how it's changed and why it is the way it is today. Very informative. If your are interested in getting away from the postcard views do this tour. Gary and Alternative London Rule!!

If you enjoy getting some history with your art - or art with your history - this is the tour for you. After seeing TOO much stuffy art during our trip to London, we wanted to see something fresh and really new. We got it on this Alternative Tour. and were surprised and delighted to also hear some of the history of London's East End at the same time. Well worth our time.
