We did the graffiti tour and it was amazing. Our tour guides name was Hayley and she was very knowledgeable of the artists and types of graffiti in the area she showed us. It definitely warrants five stars.

A really fun way to spend an afternoon. The tour is lovely balance between local history and lots of delicious local food. Mostly it is based around Broadway Market which is heaving on a Saturday. We tried Victorian 'Street Food' at the traditional Pie and...More

If you're looking for a different view of a part of London, geographically and culturally, I'd recommend this tour. Regardless of your view on graffiti before the tour, a couple of hours with a knowledgeable guide like Lily brings a different (and lighthearted) perspective to...More

My teenaged kids and I did the street art tour in Shoreditch. Our tour guide, Hayley, did a great job. She is passionate about art, really knew about the artists and the "scene." This is not easy, because street art changes all the time. The...More

There was a very good balance between the history of the area and the art that Lily showed us. Her passion shone through and her enthusiasm was infectious as she got us to look for things which were not easily visible. Never again will we...More

I came into this tour thinking it would be ok, but it far exceeded that. Led by a street artist with broad knowledge of not only the "competing" artists, but also the architecture and history of Spitalfields, I was very impressed by this experience. Highly...More

Fantastic tour by Gary. There are a few street art tours, but this is the original. Authentic, knowledgable weave of history, street art and local area highlights. Reasonable prices. Proceeds go to help local youth and artists. Highly recommend.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Hi there, The guides that run our pub tours also take our other walking tours so they know the area and it's street art incredibly well. I would advise to take the pub / craft beer tour and ask the guide to point out some... More
