For street art enthusiasts around the world, London’s East End is the top of a must-visit list of worldwide street art locations, and we’re ready to show it all to you.

Jam-packed full of eclectic, interesting, shocking, and beautiful street art, this area of London is practically blanketed in some of the most famous street art in existence.

Come with Free Street Art Tours as we traipse along these cobbled streets, exploring all the art there is to see: from massive murals and pieces that take up entire buildings, to the tiny hidden pieces you’d miss if you didn’t have anybody to tell you where to look! And did I hear somebody say ‘Banksy’..?

Spend a couple of hours with us on this London Graffiti and Street Art Tour and discover that Brick Lane and the alternative neighbourhoods of the East End are real treasure troves of goodies!
