Alternative London Tours was founded in 2010 by long-time East End resident and activist Gary Means. After a stint of travelling the world, Gary returned to his hometown and was able to see it in a different context. He realised that even the most up-to-date locals would struggle to find the best street art and graffiti in London, due to the ever-changing and clandestine nature of the art.

Local street artists and creatives came on board to shape our collective and to generate a realistic London income to fund their creative endeavours. As our team grew, we began to offer hands-on experiences like our Street Art & Graffiti Workshops. We started with an old London bus as our HQ, and have now opened London’s only purpose-built spray painting workshop space. London is so much more than colonial buildings and statues. For us, it’s about people and communities. We are proud to shine the spotlight on the underdogs; the vagabonds, the non-conformists, the immigrants, the creatives and creative thinkers who made our endlessly fascinating community the vibrant, cultural epicentre it is today.

I enjoyed the tour and listening to what the teacher had to say but it’s A bit overpriced and not very well paced and a bit repetitive at the end.
