London’s east side areas of Brick Lane and Shoreditch are arguably the most dynamic part of the city.
In the last three decades they have become the outdoor canvas for one of the most impressive street art scenes in the world. Join a local Blue Badge guide for a private tour of these public works of art. Your guide will show you Cargo club in Shoreditch that is the location for two images by the UK’s most famous – yet anonymous – graffiti artist, Banksy. See work by Ben Eine, including his famous painted shop front shutters. Hear about local artist Stik and search out his latest murals. Visit Hanbury Street to discover the iconic Crane by Belgian muralist, Roa and uncover the mysteries of the “magic” mushrooms that pop up all across the area. Your guide will tell you about the different ways street art works, from street sculpture to stencils, pastes and stickers. And as well as being a street art expert – unlike on any other street art tour – your Blue Badge guide will actually know all about the fascinating history and latest trends of the local area.
