Perhaps you'll start by exploring one of the oldest east London markets together, soaking up the unique atmosphere as you unearth handmade crafts, jewellery, clothing by up and coming British designers as well as quirky and affordable art. Having played host to a market since the 1600s, the spitalfields area is also the perfect place to soak up some east london history too, if that's what interests you.

You could also explore a few of London’s best vintage shops, bursting with near-antique leathers, delicate lace dresses and retro accessories, as well as the cutting-edge high fashion stores, niche independent boutiques, pop-ups, vinyl record shops and diverse street food markets. Shoreditch is also birthplace of Boxpark, a unique mismatch of compact food outlets; korean and vodka fried chicken wings, fresh falafel and loaded bubblewaffles are just a taste of the hipster treats available to try.

Wanting to explore about the artistic makeup of the neighbourhood? Let your Local Host lead you through the labyrinth of streets to discover where some of the most impressive street art in the world is found on exposed brickwork and disused railway carriages, and hear the local stories behind these unique works of art. Your Local Host knows the area well, so walk along cobbled back-alleyways where Banksy has exhibited his street-art, drink craft beers in one of the local breweries owned by bearded locals and soak up the street style in this unique area - in exactly your own unique way.

Before the day is up, make sure to get the lowdown from your local host about the best places to continue into the night, and find out the best ways to party like a Shoreditch local if you feel like staying!

¡Excelente tour!

Tuve como guía a Alice. El tiempo se nos pasó muy rápido ya que fue muy amena y me compartió muchos datos históricos de Londres. Fue encantador a todos los sitios donde me llevó. He estado en Londres varias veces y por mucho este tour ha sido de los mejores si quieres conocer lo no turístico de Londres.

Banksy Street Art and much much more!

I used to live in London myself until I moved to NYC 15 years ago. I hadn't even heard of Shoreditch then let alone thought about visiting it. Just goes to show what evolution occurs in such a vibrant city like London. Sean-Taylor (from my current home town- looks like we've done a city swap) is an amazing guy who brought the place to life. He works there and knows lots of people, vintage shopping, bars, restaurants and of course the amazing Street Art or Graffiti as we used to call it. I loved it, thanks so much S-T!

Shoreditch and Hoxton

Fabulous experience! Winnie tailored the trip to our tastes and showed us a wonderful time. She showed us lots of street art, vintage and other shops, a very edgy art gallery, some music. We made a nice half way stop by a little cafe on the canal and did a little more shopping and at the end of the experience she left us at a Vietnamese Cafe. It was a perfect way to see the real London, away from all the tourist sites and an awesome experience for my granddaughter.
