When people ask me how to see "local London", the first place I tell them to go is London's East End.
On this tour, you'll discover the city's most culturally diverse and creative area. It's the bohemian heart of London with its transformation from poverty, violence and gangsters to a world-famous street art scene, interesting boutique shops and curry houses.
You’ll see work by the most popular street artists in the world, including Banksy, learn about the eccentric characters and waves of immigration that have shaped the neighborhood, and understand what makes this such an eclectic and vibrant part of London.
