Josh gives it everything for 2 hours. Really enjoyed the tour and his hearing his viewponts about street art and grafitti. Definitely saw stuff I wouldn’t have by myself.

One of the highlights of my London visit was an Alternative London tour, which turned out to be a very inspiring, impressive and possitive experience. Our local guide was an artist Kian who was also very passionate and knowledgable. Thanks for this great experience!

Took a 21 yr old visitor from NZ on this tour yesterday. Our guide, Lily was enthusiastic and knowledgable. We both really enjoyed the tour and I would recommend it highly to anyone else, either local or visiting.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Hi there, The guides that run our pub tours also take our other walking tours so they know the area and it's street art incredibly well. I would advise to take the pub / craft beer tour and ask the guide to point out some... More
