Street Art in East London

So signing up to Groupon in London has been pretty useful at getting me to places I wouldn’t normally go for a wander.  Prime example is this Street Art walk I went on in East London; starting in Aldgate, heading through to Spittalfields market and ending up in the Shoreditch/Hoxton area.  We had great weather, and a really interesting and sound guide.  He showed us some great and crazy stuff, but the best way to explain it to you would be to show you, so take a look at some of the best street art we came across.

After leaving the tour, me and my pal did some googling of the infamous Banksy vs. Robbo war  as per recommendation of the knowledgeable tour guide and discovered this great story that sums it up just perfectly… It was a war alright! http://twistedsifter.com/2012/01/banksy-vs-robbo-war-in-pictures/

Definitely recommend you go on this tour, it changes every single day as street art get torn down and “thrown up” again and again, so enjoy!
