Make sure to check this out! Highly enjoyed the tour, spanning such diverse topics as history and politics and street art of course. You will get to see pieces by some of the world's finest artist and might even get to se them completing the works as you take the tour. Our guide Josh was extremely knowledgeable and made the hour pass in what felt like a couple of minutes. Don't forget to give a small contribution of 5-10 quid at the end.

Strange you missed my site... http://www.ldngraffiti.co.uk/ ...which currently has over 10,000 photos of Graffiti Street Art in London... You've also omitted some of the most important places in London to see original Graffiti? Stockwell, Trellick Tower, Leake Street... and a few more...

If you wanna see the best street art pieces, you should take the Street Art London tour. I did it in December, it was a 4-hour tour. It was freezing that day but it was worth it. We saw amazing pieces by Swoon, Banksy, Stik, Phlegm, Malarky and much more. If, like me, you're new in London it's a really good way to discover East London. You can find more info on the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/StreetArtLondon
