London Street Art - Alternative London Tour

Pin It!
Oscar the Grouch by BLAM

We don't venture to London's East End too often so we took the opportunity to do so when we found out about the Alternative London Tour. So one fine and sunny Sat afternoon, we made our way to London, had lunch at Wagamama and waited for Gary the tour guide near Spitalfields Market. And in came this cool looking guy and off we went in search of some street art around the Brick lane(famous for the loads of Indian Eateries), Shoreditch, Old street areas.

Gary was very knowledgeable about the many art pieces we saw as well as the happenings around the area. New pieces pop up every so often so he keeps himself up to date with them and change the tour route often to allow the enjoyment of the best of the lot!

This is definitely a tour to check out when in London, in fact it's a tour to go for every 6 months or so since the art is every changing. We highly recommend it!! :)

Here's a few more pieces for a feel of what you'll get to see. Enjoy!!
