Thanks Josh for a great, and informative tour. It's the 3rd time I've been on this tour over several years, as the art is always changing, and I have learned new things each time and will certainly come back again!

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.
