Do you love street art or want to know more about it?

Street Art in Shoreditch is a private walking tour exploring the area of Shoreditch with a private guide. The focus is the world-class street art that can be found on every corner, and we’ll take you to some hidden gems too. We’ll also give you an insight into how this vibrant community has evolved over time and what it means for London today.

You will learn about Banksy, Shepard Fairey, D*Face and many more artists who have made their mark on the East End through our expert guides who are passionate about this unique scene. This tour is perfect if you want to discover something new or simply enjoy learning more about one of the most exciting areas of London from your own personal guide!

Our street art in Shoreditch private tour mixes the street art and the artists with the history of the immediate area. You will see a vast range of street art and learn about the artists that created them.

In the very heart of Ripper Territory Brick Lane was a poor slum area in the past.  The Old Nichol was known as the worst slum in Victorian East London but now the area is experiencing a new lease of live thanks to a large number of talented street artists. You will see how this vibrant art form is changing an entire neighbourhood for the better.

Today, following a bit of regeneration, Brick Lane offers exciting alternative shopping opportunities, various markets and some of the best curries in the capital.

Delve a little deeper and further into the colourful streets of Shoreditch find out some of the best places to eat and drink the area along the way!

Street Art Tour: Shoreditch Reviews

Eva, Germany
“Hazel’s walks are always exceptional but this topped them all. This is totally what guided walks are for: to find and see things you wouldn’t otherwise. And with the background stories – amazing.”
Matt B
“I’m walking through Shoreditch every day to and from work and see the ever changing street art, sometimes popping up within a day out of nowhere. Hazel’s research, insight and natural enthusiasm is a real breath of fresh air. Her passion for the walks and openness for questions/input is really great. I really enjoyed this walk but was crushed to not having been able to leave a review on her Trip Advisor since I left a review on the Wonders of Whitehall Walk and TripAdv doesn’t allow several reviews within short periods of time. Sorry Hazel! —– Highly recommended. Go on this walk since it’s a living and breathing environment with its changing as well as challenging art and story!”
Susan M
“Another entertaining and engaging walk from Hazel. This was a new area of London to me so the information was fresh and interesting. A different type of walk but if you have any interest in any type of street art this will be for you.”
Jacqui and Dominic
“A wonderful informative walk with a great raconteur and historian, lots of interest for all levels. A real eye opener. My 12 year old and a visiting friend loved this too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hazels tours and am keen to catch her others. Go if you can.”
Sarah G
“We didn’t know this area at all, apart from a few visits in the past to St Leonard’s church for Shakespeare plays, so had no idea about the sheer abundance of vibrant street art. A great walk and talk, which had us soon enthusiastically identifying various artists and their unique styles. It will certainly make us look at street art and graffiti in a different way. Another enjoyable and informative walk from Hazel in a quirky and dynamic part of town and highly recommended. After the walk we explored the area a bit more, looking at more art and stopping off for a meal (we spotted several nice looking places to eat or have drinks/cocktails).”
“Very interesting walk. I got to know Shoreditch a bit more. Love the street art. Could see myself hanging up lanterns in the area. Will definitely visit again to see more art. ”
David B, London
“Delightful way to spend a sunny evening weaving the streets and alleyways of Shoreditch in search of Street art in the jovial and enthusiastic company of Hazel, your knowledgeable guide!”
“Great walk and talk in Shoreditch. The guide was very knowledgeable of history and street in the area. She ensured that she could be heard by use of speaker. She encouraged discussion and made sure that group was safe.”
“Enjoyable and informative tour. Hazel was very nice and our teenager came of his shell!”
“Very interesting walk. Hazel was an excellent guide. We will certainly look to go on another of her tours.”
“I really recommend this walk. Hazel as usual had all the information about the art and artists. Saw some great street art and also learnt much more about the area.”
“Loved the tour guide Hazel puts it across very well. Shoreditch was buzzing and loved walking down the down the old streets of London with all the street art and shops a very nice day out.”
