More About Us
Alternative London - Culture | Creativity | Community

Alternative London is an original and unique Social Enterprise and a refreshing new concept in the

market. Amongst London's many tours, Alternative London was the first to showcase what is happening now in London's creative hotbed.

Even though we are the

original London street art tour

provider, we believe that the art on the walls is just the tip of the iceberg. We aim to go much deeper by giving insights into the interesting historical events, and the vast array of cultures that have made this exciting part of the capital what it is today.

Now in our fifth year, Alternative London has gone from strength to strength. We have spent 57 consecutive weeks as London's number one tour provider on Trip Advisor, featured in countless T.V shows and newspaper and magazine articles and been named amongst Guardian travel's top 10 tours in the world!

We have grown from a one man operation to a small business with a social conscience. We employ artists and young creatives as guides who are able to give tours for income whilst concentrating on their creative careers.

In a market which now has many imitators, our motto remains the same: to always innovate and never imitate. By constantly pushing the boundaries and moving forward with exciting and original new projects;
