What people are saying about Old Spitalfields Market
I had an amazing time on this tour. Starting off with a brief introduction and history lesson on Shoreditch. Along the way we learned about all different types of street art from brass sculptures to foam mushrooms to stencils. I'd highly recommend doing this tour for anyone who has even the slightest interest in street art. I wish I had of continued on and taken part in the stencil workshop!
Josh (our tour guide) was fantastic. He had personal experience with street art, an encyclopedic knowledge of the area's history which contributed heavily to understanding the why's and how's of the art. I began the tour knowing just about nothing and came away feeling I had just taken an art history course. Thanks Josh, now get that MA!
Our guide, a street artist herself, showed & explained the numerous works present in the area. We were also given an insight as to the reason why street art is performed along with an in depth explanation of the different techniques used by different artists & details of the dangers & risks that the artists are prepared to take.
Yasmin was a fantastic tour guide. Loads of interesting info on the art but also the history of the area. I took my 14 year old goddaughter who lives in the country and she was completely wild about it. Really really interesting for me too and I thought I knew London well.
Great evening. Our guide was able to understand our needs as a group and shared really interesting info - both historical and current - about the huge amount of street art, and about the artists themselves. Thoroughly recommend the tour
