Street Art is something we are so passionate about and on the tour and in this blog we celebrate its diverse forms, its infinite sources of inspiration and the myriad messages, effects and displays of beauty that grace our walls. We never underestimate how lucky we are to share this love with so many enthusiastic guests of the tour and it is always hugely appreciated when guests share how much they enjoyed their tour with Shoreditch Street Art Tours.
Today, courtesy of Walkingwomble (The Wombles were characters from a children’s animation on the BBC when I was a kid back in the 70s, they lived on Wimbledon Common and cleaned up rubbish) we have reached a major milestone with our 1500th review on Tripadvisor. 96.8% of the reviews are 5 star, the highest level in the top ten of the “Tours In London” category. We feel honoured and immensely proud that so many of our guests have taken the time to provide such wonderful feedback on our tours. We never imagined this when we started Shoreditch Strete Art Tours – it was a dream!
To celebrate this milestone an d to say a big thank you to all of our fantastic guests and to all of the street artists who use the walls in Shoreditch as their gallery, here is a little selection of street art photographed in the past month or so as we pass this amazing milestone mixed in with some shots of guests on tour.

Uberfubs has been placing these amazing sequinned pieces art for several years now, many expressing political sentiments.

Our street art tours sometimes provide opportunities for glimpsing street art in the moment of creation, occasionally to meet street artists but always thereis the possibility of taking great photographs.
Finally, after several weeks of tours in typical December weather for London, lets remind ourselves that the sun does indeed shine on the tour sometimes, this lovely photo is by tour guest Suzanne Muhaffie:
Thanks again to so many of you for your kind and generous feedback and for uploading photographs of the great street art the artists create in London.
Season’s greetings and happy holidays to all.
