Where you'll be

We will wander London's East End districts of Shoreditch and Hoxton, where a great deal of the city's street art resides. London's first theatre was built here in the 16th century. In the last several decades it has become an artistic center. Hoxton was the home of courtiers and ambassadors.

Thanks for the tour. The guy was really nice but kept stopping to speak to his mates, started smoking and also didn't really add much substance or structure, it felt basically just like a walk around shoreditch looking at the grafitti.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see this part of London and of course the street art. The tour is done by artists themselves, which gives you a better perspective on what is involved in creating what you will see on the way. There is even an option to try and create your own piece, which I really enjoyed ( and I am barely able to draw anything). Emilie was wonderful and helped me a lot. Definitely worth doing. A great experience all round. There were people on our tour who have done it before and came back with friends and family, and I’m not surprised.

What an amazing tour! There is so much street art in London that it’s easy to get overwhelmed and miss hidden gems. This tour was a perfect fix for that. I loved how varied the art on the tour was and how much of a story it told. Emilie was a fantastic guide based on her knowledge of the subject as well as her own art background and connection to the local artists. As beautiful and interesting as the street art was, arguably the best part of this tour was getting to create your own piece of art. Spray painting requires enough space, ventilation/ studio set up, and knowledge of the actual medium, which makes it difficult to experiment with. This tour took the hassle out of that, leaving me with a unique experience and souvenir that I will not soon forget. Thank you again!
