We are aware that many of you will be flocking to Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, but here at The Amazing Blog, we wanted to give you another option. Something a little… alternative. Alternative London is an off-the-beaten track experience that offers a variety of unique and informative London tours.
Art Enthusiasts in particular will love the London Street Art tour, you have the option to explore the East End either with a walking, biking, or evening tour. The art itself is enough to take your breath away, we are particularly intrigued by the Graffiti Workshops. Think of it as an art class with an edge, finally, education we can get excited about.
The guides are extremely helpful and informative. Their knowledge of the art, culture and history comes from their close ties to the community, and background as street artists themselves. What better way to learn than from the experts. If you find yourself working up an appetite after touring the wonderous street art, then try out their Food & Drinks Tours that take you to a few of the best pubs in the East End. After all, no London tour is complete without a pint of lager.
The Alternative London Tours are the first in London to run on a pay as you go basis. The tours are available this weekend at Spitalfields Market, each lasts for roughly two hours. Book your own Alternative London tour on their website.
