  • Shoreditch - The tour continues heading up into Shoreditch where we continue to explore the latest in the ever changing display of street art and graffiti.

Great insight into Shoreditch street art - I've spent a lot of time looking at street art in East London over the last decade or so but had never attended a formal street art tour before Saturday. Dave Stuart's Shoreditch Street Art Tours has always been highly rated and I was glad I took the plunge. The tour was very professional right from the time of booking. The welcome email provided clear directions for where and when to meet, the expected first few streets on the tour in case you are late and an indication of where and when the tour would end. As well as this we got a weather forecast and other handy tips. On the day of the tour some 20 people met by Spitalfields Market and off we went. Dave is a full time professional street art guide and really knows his stuff. The tour took in many of the long-standing artworks for which Shoreditch is famous with works by Stik, Shepard Fairey, Invader and, of course, Banksy - as well as many brand new pieces that have appeared in recent days and weeks. Dave not only showed us the art but also provided the background to the artists and the works, giving a context that you wouldn't get just by walking round the area. The tour ended three hours after it began by taking in 5 works by the infamous Banksy. There's a lot of information to absorb on the tour but that same evening a follow-up email arrived from Dave with a summary of all of the key works we had encountered as well as numerous links to artist and other web pages and instagram accounts. Fantastic! If you have any interest in art - not just street art - and you are visiting London I would have no hesitation in recommending Shoreditch Street Art Tours. Iit's a great way to spend half a day and really helps to position the importance of urban art in the capital. Thanks, Dave!

Now I know the difference between graffiti and Street Art! - This was a great experience - super introduction to the development of street art internationally as well as London - John, aka SubDude, was knowledgeable and interesting. Definitely worth doing - I won’t be able to walk through a City again with paying more attention to both the graffiti and the art!

“Art by anyone for everyone” - The Shoreditch Street Art Tour was brilliant and a must for any art enthusiast visiting London. Dave was an amazing storyteller and his genuine passion for street art is contagious. He took us to see many amazing pieces in the area, all the while identifying the artists and teaching us their history and how to recognize their styles. I came into the tour with no clue on what to expect, I came out of it with a newfound appreciation for the art. It felt like it has shifted my perspective and suddenly the streets are full of stories, I can’t help but look up and around trying to identify these fragments.

The best street art tour in the area, hands down! - I love street art, and having done several street art tours in the area now, I can say without a DOUBT that Dave's is hands down the best tour available. The information is accurate, he is engaging, and he truly knows everything and everyone there is to know, with many years of experience gained as a true street art aficionado. He was able to give detailed and informative answers about every little thing somebody asked, and shared lots of interesting anecdotes. Thanks Dave for being a brilliant guide, and I will be sending anybody interested in learning about street art your way!

Non stop action, information and fun! - The street art tour was incredible! Dave was so knowledge and engaging. We covered so much ground literally and informatively! It was a great way to move around Shoreditch and learn about street artists and artwork. We learned about different styles and methods and even got to see artists in action! Will recommend it to all my friends.

Second Tour With Dave - My second tour with Dave. and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. He’s knowledgeable, works hard to keep up with the current artists in the street, and very, very passionate about his subject. A fascinating way to spend a morning, will make you appreciate your local street art more. Heck, I’m tempted to give it a whirl myself.
