Beyond London’s most popular landmarks, it isn’t always easy for visitors to follow in locals’ footsteps. But, this guided walking tour through East London breaks down barriers and gives you a cultural immersion in the city’s most creative and eclectic neighborhoods. See lively Spitalfields Market, trendy Shoreditch, and diverse Brick Lane on foot. Learn about the area’s history and discover the vibrant street art that East London is famous for.

What to Expect

Your afternoon tour kicks off near the conveniently located Liverpool Street Station. Meet your guide and head to your first stop: Spitalfields Market. Traders have been operating on this market site for hundreds of years. Today, it’s home to clothing stalls, stylish boutiques, and some of East London’s most in-demand restaurants.

Then, visit Brick Lane: an always-bustling area that is home to a large Bengali community as well as artists, street food markets, and independent shops and galleries.

The tour continues through Shoreditch, which remains one of the city’s most vibrant and creative districts. As you go, learn about the area’s history and discover the abundant street art. Your guide will point out ephemeral works by international artists.

The walking tour ends when you return to your original departure point.

This is a must!!

It was pouring rain and cold and I still had an amazing time. Not only do you learn about the history of street art but also the history of east London. Its off the beaten path. I would highly recommend!

Interesting insight into a lesser known area of London

Very interesting couple of hours learning about the different genres of street art and great to have a knowledgeable guide (Josh) explaining the history of the area and pointing out various details that most people would miss on their own. Definitely recommended

Super cool

Instead of going to the normal tourist sites, definitely check out Alternative London. Very interesting to hear about street art and its history from an incredibly knowledgable guide. Got a bit of walking so make sure you're comfortable!

Super interesting mix of street art, history and good guide

I'm a Londoner and had a visitor so we did this tour in part of London I don't know so well. There was a focus on street art but history, gentrification and little bits of trivia were thrown in and kept the tour varied and...More
