Description

On this 2.5-hour walking tour you will discover the real London's East End. You will not only discover its alternative art scene, graffiti and street art, but you will also hear the stories of East London's most notorious gangsters, social reformers and radical thinkers. This tour will give you an insight into the Cockney culture and the most alternative side of London.

Discover the alternative scene in London on a tour that takes you not to a museum or a shiny establishment, but out into the gritty streets! Join us in the London where street art represents the voice of the people, where gentrification battles the anti-establishment, and where London’s rebellious streak was born and still lives.

While other tours here just scratch the surface by skipping over the street art, we’ll put that street art into context, giving you an insight into what was happening in the world when it was created. Yet while the street art is the most visible aspect of this area, to really understand the East End you have to go further.

Meet your guide outside Liverpool Street Station and set off to explore parts of London beyond what's seen on postcards. Visit some of the most emblematic sites of the East End, like Old Spitafields and Petticoat Lane markets, Brick Lane and Whitechapel, as you follow your guide into the deep East End.
