London Street Art
London has a thriving street art scene. Some of it’s political, other works are amusing and many are both! Some of the artists are well known, like Banksy, Chicago’s Don’t Fret and Zabou from France; others are less familiar. One of the attractions of street art is that it’s always changing and therefore difficult to map. This walk is based around the Shoreditch area; I’ve listed most of the streets with great art but use my map as a guide, and feel free to explore the streets surrounding Brick Lane. Don’t miss the wonderful Nomadic Garden.
Owing to the limitations of My Maps I have had to split the walk into two sections.
Start: A) Aldgate East Stn,
Brick Lane, Fashion Street, B) Toynbee Street, C) Chicksand Street, D) Heneage Street, Fournier Street, E) Princelet St, F) Hanbury Street, G) Lamb St, H) Woodseer Street, A) Brick Lane Market, B) Buxton St, c) Pedley Street, D) Nomadic Community Garden, E) Cheshire St, F) Bacon Street, G) Redchurch Street, H) Chance Street, I) Rivington Street,
End: J) Old St.Station.
