Owner description: Street Art London's street art tour is a walking tour around East London's creative hub for those who want to see all of London's greatest pieces of street art and find out more about the street artists behind them. We will show you all the secret spots, a few forgotten about Banksys and street art from the likes of Roa, Invader and C215! For those with an interest in photography it is also a fantastic oppurtunity to document some of the world's finest street art.

It was fab! With my teenage son & we both really enjoyed it. So much I've never noticed before - the variety of mediums used, distinct artist personailty/style & influences. Karim was a terrific guide. Thanks

The tour by Street Art London and specifically Karim was Excellent! The tour was lead in a no fluff, gritty, educated manner that was representative of the street and graffiti art that was on display. The tour showed a tremendous amount of work by numerous artists and the detail behind the works and culture that make up East London. I highly recommend this tour for a better understanding of the artists and works that you wouldn't normally find wandering on your own.

Great, detailed, info-packed tour. Our guide, Karim, was knowledgeable, easy to understand, brought out great questions from an intensely interested group. Discussions about codes of different artists, the continuum from selling out to vandalism, aesthetics of art, materials used, you name it. We consider ourselves somewhat knowledgeable about street art generally (LA, Rome, see www.romethesecondtime.com), but this was an eye opener. Great organization doing great work.

Get off the regular tourist route and go on this street art tour. We were able to arrange a private tour for our 10 person group. Our tour guide is a bit of a street artist himself. He was incredibly knowledgable and was willing to change the tour based on our interests. None of us knew enough to have a strong opinion so we let him lead the way. I loved the exposure to this part of the art world and culture that I knew nothing about.

We went on a Street Art waking tour with Ben on December 21st (the end of the world!). Anyway, it was an absolutely fabulous way to take in this aspect of London that you probably Never noticed before. After the tour we found ourselves noticing things that we would have previously walked straight past. Ben was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely be doing this tour every time we go to London. Thank you Ben :)
