Alternative London – As Featured In & Recommended By
Welcome To Alternative London
The Original off-the-beaten-track Tour Provider – East London Culture, Creativity & Community
Discover the London you won’t find in the guidebooks with Alternative London Tours, the capital’s original off-the-beaten-track tour provider! Our multi award-winning unique London experiences were the first to take visitors and local’s into the heart of the vibrant East End to explore the capital’s culture, creativity and community.
Our in-depth, first-hand knowledge of our area inspired us to create the first London graffiti and street art tour back in 2010. Now in our tenth year, we offer a variety of immersive tours and unrivalled graffiti and street art workshops for visitors and locals alike – all with the same authentic, highly informative, yet relaxed and informal approach.
Together our collective of well-known artists and local creatives are considered some of the foremost experts on East London. We are immersed in our community and produce many of the murals you will see on our tours, exhibit the artists’ works at our gallery and hang out at the independent pubs, bars and restaurants on our food and drink tours.
As passionate travellers ourselves we know how valuable your time is on a city visit, so our original mission remains the same – to take you away from the tourist traps to experience the real London – from a local’s perspective. Our reputation and high acclaim precede us and we’ve firmly established ourselves as the benchmark for cultural tourism in London. We are proud innovators who despite our many imitators remain at the top of our game with an endless enthusiasm for what we do.

A fabulous day with Emily at Alternative London. Great street art tour followed by the workshop. Highly recommend if you want to know more about the area and styles of street art. Just remember to look up!
Really loved it, not just the standard graffiti art but some amazing hidden gems along the tour, great insight into how street art is progressing in today’s world, keep up the good work guys!!
Had a wonderful and eye opening alternative tour with the lovely Yasmin. Learned so much about the history of Brick Lane and mesmerized by the stories about the neighborhood and every street art i saw. Loved this tour.
