About
You'll be taken off the-beaten-track to discover London's best street art, murals and hidden gems you won't find in the guide books! We'll walk the vibrant streets of Shoreditch and Hoxton, taking you into side streets and hidden alleyways to get under the skin of London's incredible street art scene. From huge murals and intricate stencils to finely crafted bronze sculptures and miniature masterpieces painted on discarded gum, you'll hear the stories behind dozens of works. The tour will finish at our creative warehouse space where your expert guide will teach you spray can techniques: How to spray paint free-hand, use stencils, and build up a final piece to take away with you.

Really fun and worthwhile experience
This was a really fun experience. Josh is a great communicator - we found ourselves sharing his enthusiasm and absorbing his knowledge, and were surprised and sad when the walk was over. Now our eyes are very much more open to what we see on surfaces around us. The workshop was incredibly well organised - everyone had a real chance to enjoy the spray paints and be creative. We left on a high and would do it again in a heartbeat. (I took two ten year olds and it was perfect for them, as well as for adults.)

This was absolutely brilliant!! Our guide Josh was so knowledgeable and friendly. We loved the whole thing. We saw some brilliant street art and the workshop afterwards was a brilliant way to test out what we had been talking about. I would recommend this to everyone.

Thank you Alt London.

Most amazing street art tour and workshop ever! MUST DO even if you live in London - Thanks Josh!!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had an AMAZING 5 hour tour and workshop with Josh, who lives and breathes the streets of shoreditch/east London and it’s street art scene and culture.

Our group was small, so we basically had a near one-on-one tour of not only the art around the area of shoreditch (which living in London, we had definitely never seen before!).

Although we enjoy and expected to see some amazing art/graffiti, Josh really did make this tour something else with his expert knowledge on the local artists, culture, history and emergence of the scene so prevalent across east London these days.

Not only that, the workshop was such great fun and a really cool learning experience, well led and with tips throughout. We thoroughly loved the day so massive thanks Josh for making this super awesome!

The absolute highlight of our week in London
Jan 2020
We had a great week. But the tour Josh gave us was absolutely amazing. He did not just explain everything about all forms of street art in Shoreditch and the artists behind it, he also told us about the social and economical history that defined this place as a hot spot, dating all the way back to the Huguenots and the departure of the industry in Shoreditch.
And what gave this tour an extra above all others (especially for my daughters of 9 and 11) was the workshop, in which we learnt (a bit) too handle the spray paint can ourselves

AMAZING!

This street art tour is run by a street artist, which makes this tour far above the other street art tours which I had taken previously. His depth of knowledge and interesting tidbits kept all 3 of us interested- considering this meant my teenage daughter and 75 year old Grammy quite an accomplishment! The group is kept at a great size, so it was easy to hear the information as well as ask questions. It was the perfect amount of fascinating facts, history, and techniques. I HIGHLY recommend this tour! And to Gary, who gave the tour, a HUGE thank you for leading the tour and keeping it so interesting!

Fascinating and fun
Had the most fun and eye opening day with our fantastic guide, Emilie, through the streets of East London. We discovered real gems of street art, including sculptures, paintings and stickers, I’d walked past and never really seen before. I learnt so much and will never take everyday spray art for granted again.

The workshop was brilliant and we all went home with souvenirs of the techniques we’d learned. A really unique experience.

Wonderful and unique experience to have in London
Sep 2019 • Solo
This tour throughout east London is extremely interesting and you can see anything from tiny paintings on the sidewalk you would otherwise miss, to grand large-scale pieces by well known artists like Banksy. Emily, who led my tour, was an entertaining and very well-informed guide. I also did the spray paint workshop afterwards and got to keep a piece I made, which made for a great souvenir!

Enjoyable Window into East London
Aug 2019
Interesting walk around the area (both main streets and back alleys), where we were shown things we would otherwise have overlooked. My teenager was not looking forward to this tour at all, but he was won over and for the rest of our trip would point out street art that was done by the same artists we had seen on our tour. And he loved the spray painting workshop. All in all, a great way to spend several hours.
