What you’ll do

You’ll venture into Shoreditch with your local London host and discover the vibrant and wild side of this East London neighborhood, which is known to be the hippest or most hipster pocket of London - it all depends on your point of view.

There is a creative energy that flows over the cobbled streets here - soak it up along vibrant Brick Lane, stop by a brewery or see a contemporary art exhibition.

Your local London host will open your eyes to the unique character of Shoreditch as you amble through streets plastered with murals and paste-ups, including street art by Banksy - spot them if you can.

Discover the super trendy side of Shoreditch where its streets are punctuated with hipster bars, independent boutiques, cafes, vintage markets, contemporary art galleries and underground clubs.

And while you are at it, make a quick stop at Boxpark, a shipping container pop-up mall for independent fashion and food outlets where you can find super trendy foods - think vodka fried chicken wings, fresh falafel and loaded bubble waffles.

This is one pop up which popped up and never left. You’ll not want to leave.

¡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.
