  • This London tour takes you on a street art-inspired stroll through the city’s historic Camden neighbourhood. Escape the main streets to explore the hidden stories being told by artists along the backstreets and thoroughfares — and see an alternative side to Camden not usually seen by tourists, or even locals!

    Built around canals and boasting some of the capital’s best market stalls, Camden is a must-see for visitors who are looking to get familiar with the alternative side of London. We take you off the beaten tourist track and let you experience the area as a local. Find out why the area is the fourth-most-visited neighbourhood in London; half a million people visit Camden weekly.

    Camden is one of the most vibrant, interesting, and ‘happening’ boroughs in London. There’s a myth held that Camden is only visited because of its markets — but while the markets are a big reason why most people visit the area, Camden has a lot more to offer. It has a vibrant music scene with venues like Barfly and the famous Koko club. It’s no wonder that street art started to appear in this bohemian area a few years ago!

    On this Camden tour, see great murals by some of London’s leading street artists, as well as pieces by international artists — all in all, we take in more than 100 pieces of street art, and by the end of the tour, you’ll see Camden as a dynamic canvas where artists leave their creative marks. Learn how an art form that was once considered vandalism now creatively represents the personalities of cities all around the world.

    This tour is for people who want to see what is not in the guidebooks. We show you great art, the local neighbourhood, and the people of this city. Find out why London is a street art capital frequently visited by urban artists who are eager to leave their mark. Become familiar with graffiti terms and unwritten codes like the rules for painting over someone’s work, and what a ‘tag’ is. You also learn how artists from all over the world can paint in London with the aid of ‘wall organisers.’ We highlight the difference between street art and graffiti and explain how public art can benefit local communities.

    All our guides are very active on the London street art scene, and are a mix of photographers, bloggers, wall organisers who source legal spaces for artists, or a combination of all of these — giving them the perfect insight for answering all your street art questions!

    Fascinating look at the street art scene. A very enjoyable tour.

    Mrs. Esther T. from Israel travelled on 17 Jul 2017:

    This tour was , undoubtedly, the highlight of our London holiday. Our guide, Nelly, was superb. She was knowledgeable, highly professional and her experience and passion for the subjects enabled her to get across to us all that she had to give in a very warm, informal manner. Nelly proved to be an excellent listener and responded to each question in a manner that left one with lots of information and food for thought. my son and I recommend this walk in the highest possible rating.

    Ms. Macca S. from United Kingdom travelled on 11 Nov 2016:
