This is the original tour which was established to showcase East London's incredible creativity whilst giving insights into important historical and cultural events that have made the area what it is today.

Even though this is much more than just a London street art tour, you are guaranteed to see a huge range of artwork from around forty artists per tour. Street art by nature constantly changes, which in turn means that our tours also change and evolve on a very regular basis. This guarantees that a tour which will always feel fresh.

After the tour we can have a walk around Spitafields Saturday Style Market where you'll find original clothing, accessories, homewares and ethical goods, coming from up to 60 independent designers. After which we can relax at one of the many cafes or restaurants at Spitalfiels. I've made a reservation for us at giraffe for 5.30pm.
