If you find yourself in need of some insider knowledge of the East London street art scene, whether you are a visitor to the city or a local, then our friends at Hookedblog have just the thing for you… The Hookedblog Street Art Walking Tour offers a guided tour of the current locations of the best street art that the Capital has to offer, as seen through an insiders eye.
A in depth description of the tour after the jump.
The ‘Hookedblog Street Art Walking Tour’ as we are naming it will offer Londoners and tourists alike the opportunity to see another side of the East End of London. Join us as we journey the streets of Old Street, Shoreditch and the Brick Lane areas which are seen as the epi-centre for Street Art, not only in London but the UK. The ever-changing nature of East London’s street art means that no two tours will be the same as new works go up on a weekly basis. Some of the artists work we can expect to see on the tour will include Banksy, Invader, D*Face, Roa, Stik, Conor Harrington and Eine to name a few.
The 2 hour experience will begin outside Old Street Underground Station ( Exit 2) and we will finish up at Liverpool Street Station. The tour will cost £10 per person. Should you wish to join the tour please email for more details at hookedblog[at]hotmail.com
The next tour dates are as follows:
Saturday 31 July 2010 — 11am
Saturday 14 August 2010 — 11am
Saturday 28 August 2010 — 11am
Sounds like a good way to spend a Saturday lunchtime – and this weekend’s could be especially good as a bunch of new Roa pieces have gone up.
