Full description
For an up-close introduction to London's incredible street art scene, look no further.

On this half-day tour in East London you'll see work from over 50 artists from all over the world. Your local guides always know where the best street art is found and are able to talk at length about the various artists, so you'll learn a lot about the scene.

Street art in London is incredibly dynamic and changes every day, as older pieces are painted over by other artists or removed by the Council. Because of the changeable nature of the artworks, the tour route is regularly updated to reflect the latest pieces and the tours are never scripted.

Admire the works of artists like David Walker, BC Crew, Phlegm, OZMO, Lister, Ronzo, and much more. Feel free to ask your knowledgable and friendly guide questions about the often-illusive artists and controversial works as you go.

Exceptional Beauty!

One of the Best tours that I ever had in my life .. it met and exceeded my expectations! Karim was our tour guide, he is a very pleasant brilliant artist.. I liked the flow of the tour and the piece of arts he shared with us .. He is remarkably knowledgeable in street art and shared intersting information and facts about the pieces and artists .. On top of that, he welcomed all comments or insights and addressed all questions by anyone in the tour .. I'm biased when it comes to Art, but I sincerely recommend this tour to everyone.. Regardless of your artistic tendencies, you will definitely find this tour so interesting and enjoy it .. my brother didn't have any and extremely enjoyed it the tour.. I LOVED This tour.. it is a MUST SEE!

Nice very updated!

We all enjoy the tour. The beginning was a complete mess we received an email to meet in a wrong place but in the end we were able to catch-up and do the tour. A bit risky the way our guide crossed the streets but he really understanded the graffitis an was very up to date with all the artists and the way they work.

Learned lots, was blown away and got to explore a cool neighbourhood!

I wish I could retain the amount of knowledge given on this tour. It was incredibly entertaining and informative! I was always looking forward to the next piece and was taught to look more closely at the city around me. Thank you! The generosity of artists was fantastic to see as well as the changing landscape of street art. It was lots of walking and standing after a trip of nothing but walking and standing so the break was greatly appreciated!
