What to expect

Away from the shiny palaces and postcard-perfect London landmarks, London’s East End is where the city’s rebellious streak was born and still lives. On this 2.5-hour walking tour, you’ll see where radical thinkers and social reformers have lived, where street art adorns the walls of the city, and where people from all different walks of life come together.

Your local expert guide will walk you through the vibrant and multicultural Whitechapel area, telling you about all the people who made East London home. You’ll hear about major East London events that have arisen from this melting pot, such as the 1936 Battle of Cable Street, when anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with Metropolitan Police. From the immigrant generations to the Cockney culture, from gangsters to residents battling gentrification, London’s East End is as colorful as the street art on its buildings.

What you’ll see on the London Street Art Tour is not pointless vandalism – it is street art representing the voice of the people. However, while some tours just scratch the surface of pointing out the street art, this one puts it into context, giving you an insight into what was happening in the world when it was created. Don’t just see London’s East End – understand it.
