The city of London has a thriving street art community. The infamous artist Banksy has been decorating its many walls for the better part of a decade, and there are many other murals made by artists who are as of yet unknown or still building a name for themselves. I was lucky enough to get a big bonus from my bosses at durhamng.com and it allowed me to take a big trip to London to visit all the places I’ve dreamed of. While out exploring the city of London, and hunting for its many beautiful murals, there are also many other things to do while in the city of London.
Street Art in Shoreditch
This particular area of London contains a lot of the city’s most cherished street art. It is a good place to start if a tourist wants to see some premium London street art. If they are unsure of exactly where to look within Shoreditch, there are multiple guided walking tours being run a day. London’s oldest running walking tour the “Alternative London Walking Tour” runs every day, with the “Street Art Tour & Workshop” running on Sundays. With these tours, a visitor not only gets to learn about the intricate history of London’s street art but also get to try their hand at spray painting their own graffiti stencils. This is all aided by some of the city’s top street artists.
