Built around canals and boasting some of the capital’s best market stalls, Camden is a must-see for visitors who are looking to get familiar with the alternative side of London. Your guide will take you off the beaten tourist track and let you experience the area as a local. You will find out why the area is the fourth-most-visited neighborhood in London; half a million people visit Camden weekly.
Camden is one of the most vibrant, interesting and ‘happening’ boroughs in London. There’s a myth held that Camden is only visited because of its markets — but while the markets are a big reason why most people visit the area, Camden has a lot more to offer. It has a vibrant music scene with venues like Barfly and the famous Koko club. It’s no wonder that street art started to appear in this bohemian area a few years ago!
On this Camden tour, you’ll see great murals by some of London’s leading street artists, as well as pieces by international artists — all in all, you take in more than 100 pieces of street art, and by the end of the tour, you’ll see Camden as a dynamic canvas where artists leave their creative marks. You’ll learn how an art form that was once considered vandalism now creatively represents the personalities of cities all around the world.
This tour is for people who want to see what is not in the guidebooks. You will see great art, the local neighborhood, and the people of this city. Find out why London is a street art capital frequently visited by urban artists who are eager to leave their mark. You will become familiar with graffiti terms and unwritten codes like the rules for painting over someone’s work, and what a ‘tag’ is. You’ll also learn how artists from all over the world can paint in London with the aid of ‘wall organizers.’ Your guide will highlight the difference between street art and graffiti and explain how public art can benefit local communities.
All guides are very active on the London street art scene, and are a mix of photographers, bloggers, wall organizers who source legal spaces for artists, or a combination of all of these — giving them the perfect insight for answering all your street art questions!
