Me and my friend (both 20 years old) booked the Alternative Walking Tour through the East End. Throughout the tour we saw some amazing street art and graffiti. Our awesome tour guide Hayleigh talked us through the history of the region and the meaning behind...More

Had a very good tour. Learned about the culture and history from the guide. The area gives a great opportunity to local artists to express their work. Prices are also reasonable.

I signed up for this tour after going on another amazing street art tour in Bristol the same weekend. Our guide, Josh (I think), was very informative, and I appreciated learning even some of the politics as well as nuances in the street art culture....More

Gerry, our tour guide was so well prepared, as if he would have made all the street art he showed and explained us himself. Ok, after having done that for 8 years that is not surprising. If you're keen on street art, it's a must,...More

Great alternative walking tour of East London. Emily gave us lots of information about street art, artists names and also the different types of street art. It's not just about kids writing on walls. Definitely would recommend this tour.

This was an excellent tour. I have to admit that the price kept me from committing until the last minute, but it needn't have - I got my money's worth and more and had a fabulous time. The tour is essentially an introduction to different...More

We booked this tour in mid-August because when searching the web for the best things to do in London, Alternative London was very high on the list. I know nothing about street art, so booking this was very outside my comfort zone. Boy, am I...More

Really good for exactly the reasons you would take this tour. Guide, Keir, knew his stuff, was passionate about street art and had some good stories. Got to appreciate some of the stuff you would have never otherwise noticed. Plus it was nice to have...More

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
