Come join the adventure on our 3 hour walking tour of creative and vibrant East London.
We start at Aldgate East with a quick history lesson in street art and why East London in particular is the creative hub of the Capital. We then start the adventure and hit the market areas of Petticoat Lane, Spitalsfield and Brick Lane. Delving into the side streets to seek out the leading Street Artists of Ben Eine, D*Face, Pabalo Delgado, Banksy, Ronzo, Conor Harrington, ROA and many more.
We get to the heart of what Street Art is all about, looking into the questions of what is street art, is it creative and eye opening or just pointless vandalism?
The Street Art Detour then heads to Shoreditch. Through the centuries the area has been riddled with crime, industrial buildings and World War bombings, but now it’s vibrant, trendy and the main hang out for all the cool kids.
Be shown the creative area and take in the sights, smells and sounds of East London, finding out the different uses of materials of street art, from paint spray and stencils to potatoes and chewing gum!
This is the ultimate Street Art Experience.
