What you'll do

Over the course of 2 hours, you'll be guided through the bustling streets of Europe's mecca of graffiti and street art during our insider walking tour in Shoreditch. You'll see and learn about the city's largest concentration of authorized and unauthorized street art and murals created by world-famous artists such as Banksy, Obey Giant, Invader, D*face, as well as other internationally renowned artists Martin Ron, Otto Schade, ROA, Dan Kitchener, Cranio, and Ronzo.

The rich history of the area can be felt to this very day, and we will dive into stories of tremendous change and regeneration that make this one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the world.

Along the way, we will see tons of street art created by local and international top stars of the scene. While walking the streets of London's East End, you'll find out about different types of street art and the stories behind the art.

We might be fortunate and also witness one or two artists painting somewhere in the area. By the time the walk is over, you'll know more about London street art than most local residents do.

Enjoy a two hours full of art and storytelling, and discover a new side of the city many locals don’t even know about.

Our passion for both graffiti and street art started over 20 years ago. Ever since we can remember, we were mesmerized by painted walls in public spaces.

Rahmi created this experience back in 2017 and is a graffiti & street art aficionado.

His co-host Serena is an art historian from Italy with deep roots in classical art. She is a big fan of London's East End where our street art tours take place.

Being born and raised in the capital, Luca is 50% Italian, 50% English and 100% a true Londoner. A graduate in art history, he is very passionate about artistic expression from every form.

Join us on our tour to experience a day filled with graffiti, street art and history. :-)

Our tour was led by Serena and since no one else signed up for the tour, it was just our family. It was a great introduction to street art and Serena was gracious to cut the tour short due to our 7 year old struggling to walk the full two hours.

This was an amazing experience. Diana really opened up this unique and evolving neighborhood to us. It was a fascinating view into the changing nature of London right now.

Die Führung mit Diana war großartig und interessant! Sie hat sehr viel Hintergrundwissen über Graffiti und Street Art. Das alles hätte ich alleine niemals gesehen und erfahren! Diana war sehr nett und freundlich und ich hatte einen sehr außergewöhnlichen Tag.

This was a super fun experience getting to see the street art around the up and coming Shoreditch area. I loved that Serena and Luca shared stories and insights about the various pieces we saw as we walked around; I could see that they were excited and genuinely interested. I loved that they were open to answering questions about what it was like to live in the UK, and they were curious about the US as well. The coffee break was also very well placed, so we could warm up towards the end of the tour. Would recommend!
