Short read: Bombing with Banksy & Co.

Long read: “People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly” – Banksy.

There’s no other London Walk like this one. It’s intense on the senses.

It’s a corkscrew of a route that pops cork after cork of east London’s vibrant, heady, dynamic street art scene.

It gets up close and personal with Banksy and Ben Eine and Shepherd Fairey and Invader and Co.

It decodes them. Like a great jazz musician it improvs (because this outdoor gallery – aka Shoreditch and Spitalfields – gets “rehung”* every few months). *Six months is the average lifespan of street art in east London. So the walk – true to the scene – changes all the time. Makes for a unique buzz. Okay, Banksy, here we come.

  1. Sheila

    I have been on dozens of London walks and have never, well maybe once, been disappointed but this walk was off the charts fantastic. Fabrizo made every stop mesmerizing. I saw Art I would never have discovered. He was so enthusiastic about the work, the artist, and the placement of the art. This was one of a kind. Thank you

  2. Anne

    Excellent tour, guided by Leo, really enjoyed it

  3. Baruch Pinnick

    Excellent. Fabrizio is passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the subject. He talks clearly and is full of interesting and amusing anecdotes. The street art that we saw was amazing.

  4. Philippa

    We LOVED this tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable about the street art scene and threw in some extra historical factoids about the local area. I’m already recommending it to everyone I know!

  5. Matt

    Leo gave us a fantastic tour of the amazing street art and graffiti in and around the vibrant area of Spitalfields, with fascinating and insightful stories of their background. Really enjoyable couple of hours. Thank you.

  6. Linda Baker

    I made it! And so glad I came! So much fantastic art around Shoreditch. Our guide, Fabrizio, really knew his stuff. Made it so interesting. The artwork is constantly changing so will definitely go again in a few months time 🎨🎭🧩

  7. Ozlem Wipperich

    We had a wonderful street art tour with Jackie yesterday in spite of challenging weather conditions. Jackie showed us all the hidden corners of Shoreditch area painted beautifully, quirkily by different street artists. it was very interesting to learn the background of the artists, story of the wall arts. There were 4 teenagers with us. Jackie successfully managed to have their attention. Thank you Jackie! we will definitely suggests your tours to our friends.

  8. Meg

    One of the best London Walk tours I’ve joined. There was so much to see, and David was a great guide.

  9. Dianne Wilkinson

    Jackie’s Street Art walk was notable not only for the hidden gems which she introduced us to, but also the background detail and information with which she textured her talk. She is great with children, encouraging their input and she also delivers her talk in a clear voice easy for the hard of hearing (me!). Jackie’s walk was an excellent use of valuable tourist time, yet good for locals (“I didn’t know that”) also.
