Description

Get to know the other side of London by exploring the secret street art of Camden Town on this small-group, 2-hour walking tour. Wander down back alleys, secret lanes, and canal-side walkways, and hear the stories of the artists whose work lines the streets of this historic district from a guide who's an expert on London's street art scene.

Your guide will be either a photographer, a blogger, a 'wall organizer' who sources legal spaces for street artists, or some combination of these roles: they'll meet you at Camden Town tube at 10:55am.

Under their guidance, escape the main streets and the busy markets to get off the beaten tourist track and learn why half a million people visit Camden every week. One of London's most vibrant, interesting, and happening boroughs, this bohemian area is as alive with street art as it's full of music.

Discover great murals by some of London's leading street artists, as well as individual piece by international artists. You'll see over 100 pieces of street art that have transformed Camden into a dynamic canvas where artists leave their creative marks. Learn how an art form that was once considered vandalism now represents the personalities of cities all around the world.

Your guide will explain graffiti terms and the unwritten codes that govern this underground world, as well as how 'wall organizers' enable artists from all over the world to paint in London. You'll end your tour in central Camden at 2pm, just a short walk from the tube.
