shoreditch street art tour

I spent a day in London with my mum last week. We do a London day together every year and, aside from a bit of shopping, we're always looking for something new and different to do with our day. This year we went on a street art tour around Shoreditch. It was epic! It was brilliant! We spent 3 hours pounding the streets and alleyways of Spitalfields, Bricklane and Shoreditch. Our tour guide Dave recently set up Shoreditch Street Art Tours but has been into the scene for ten years (he is also a world renowned street art photographer), so he was super knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. We saw work in hidden corners as well as prominent pieces. What's really surprising is the amount of work that is in plain view but seen by so few people - we don't spend enough time looking up or looking down to the ground! I took a plenty of photographs - here are some of my favourite ones:
