I have been a big street art fan for a while, but recently I have really started to appreciate the value of taking a street art tour. I learned so much during my Brooklyn Graffiti and Street Art Tour and the tour I took of Philadelphia’s Mural Mile. Thanks to my cousin, Hassan, I had seen some of the street art in Shoreditch before and knew that it was one of the best areas in London for street art. When I learned that you could take a free Shoreditch Street Art Tour with Strawberry Tours, I couldn’t wait to go!
Shoreditch Street Art Tour Logistics
Strawberry Tours offer various tours in London for free! They just ask that you tip your tour guide the amount you feel the tour was worth. If you don’t enjoy the tour (which won’t be the case!), you don’t have to pay anything. Part of this money does go to cover marketing and operational expenses. The guides also donate 10% of the tips to charity.
My friends, Kristin and Pete, who now live in Denver were in London, so we decided to bring them along on the Free Street Art and Graffiti Tour. While the tour is free, you do need to make a reservation online. You will get an email confirmation, but you don’t need to print it. They offer the tour Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 3:30 pm and recently added an additional tour at 11 am on Saturdays due to popular demand. (more…)
