This is easily the most comprehensive street art tour I've been on, and considering it's about 4 hours long, it was a very decent price. Whether you've a faint interest in street art and graffiti and its culture or are a knowledgable fan, you'll learn something new from street art scholar Dave, whose enthusiasm for London's concrete canvas makes this a lively, insightful tour.
You'll learn about the myriad techniques street artists use, the history of certain pieces and might even discover fresh work that's still wet! You’ll see works by some of the most famous local and international names in street art, including D*Face, Eine, Mr Cenz, Roa, Ronzo and, of course, Banksy.
You get to rest your legs for a bit in a local coffee shop before heading off again, winding through Shoreditch's back roads and off the beaten track to discover gems you might not otherwise have known existed – especially as many get replaced/painted over so quickly and often.
The tour doesn’t end on the streets – after, Dave sends an equally thorough email with hundreds (nearly) of links to reviews, videos and photos on the various artists and artworks we’d seen through the day, and many more. It’s a fascinating experience and worth every penny. Definitely not one to miss if you want a real insight one of the most impressive street art collections anywhere in the world.
