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.

Our guide, Josh was brilliant. His knowledge of street art really opened our eyes to the creativity and joy it brings to passers by. The graffiti workshop was also great fun and much easier than we expected. I'd definitely recommend.

Amazing! I learnt so much from Gary not only about techniques, styles but also history of the East end of London, and the community he cares so much about. It's a brilliant tour, and the workshop after the tour was the most relaxing and fun thing to do on a miserable freezing Monday.
It's different from everything I have done and I cannot recommend it enough. I have recommended to all my friends including for Team building activities
Really one of the most interesting and fun things I did since I have been in London (25 years) I will do it again with friends and family visiting from abroad.

We throughly enjoyed our Street Art Tour and workshop for our team away day! Alice was a brilliant guide, extremely knowledgeable and really good fun. There were so many sights tucked away and Alice was able to point out the detail and give us insight into the work of the world's best street artists. 10/10 would recommend
