Experience

Highlights
  • Explore the East End of London and visit its most emblematic sites
  • Look at the most representative street art
  • Learn about Cockney culture and the most alternative side of London
Full description
Get off the usual tourist path and learn the alternative history of London away from the landmark sights. Explore the notorious East End to see examples of street art that gives voice to the people, and areas where gentrification battles the anti-establishment.

Hear how the city's rebellious streak was born – and still lives – in the area as your guide puts the street art into context and gives you an insight into what was happening in the world when it was created. Visit emblematic sites, such as Old Spitafields Market and Petticoat Lane.

Walk down Brick Lane and onto Whitechapel, hear about the art scene of Shoreditch, and learn about the Battle of Cable Street of 1936, when members of the British Union of Fascists clashed with anti-fascist demonstrators, including local anarchist, communist, Jewish, and socialist groups.
