Street Art London has been closely involved with the street art scene in the city over the past decade, and knows exactly where to look for the latest additions and hidden gems. East London has grown to be synonymous with colourful, in-your-face murals, like the work of Dan Kitchener, or EINE. But smaller, understated pieces exist all around the city, and Street Art London's knowledgable guides can tell you all there is to know about the commission, the artistic process and the lesser-known stories behind the works.
This tour isn't just for tourists, either – although it does make a great alternative if you want to get out of the bustling West End for a morning, and see a more authentic side of the city. Londoners who walk past these art-works every day, without ever stopping to study them, will never look at their city in the same way again after learning some of the secrets of this thriving scene. Whether you're an art novice or a seasoned visual culture addict with an annual pass to the Tate galleries, there'll be something on this tour to impress you.
