The Alternative London Walking Tour

This is our original tour which was established to showcase East London's incredible creativity whilst giving insights into important historical and cultural events that have made the area what it is today.

Even though this is much more than just a London street art tour, you are guaranteed to see a huge range of amazing uncommissioned artworks and we are the only London tour company to employ well known street artists and those involved in the creative community as guides.

Our in depth local knowledge of the East End allows our guides to give an unprecedented insight into the challenges our community faces moving into the future and all of the exciting things that people are doing to keep this amazing part of the capital unique.

This is the first London tour to run on a pay-what-you-like basis. This ensures that it is accessible to everyone - regardless of their budget. Tours are around 2 hours and start and finish near Spitalfields Market from Monday to Saturday. Tours times vary and booking is essential so head over to our bookings page for available dates and bookings. Meet our guides here.

Please get in touch for private tours in Spanish or Italian. Featured in The Guardian's top 10 guided tours in the world!

How Our Walking Tours Work

We originally set out as offering Free London Tours of the East End, however we felt that asking people to pay at the end when the tours were advertised as free was a little unfair. So we decided to ditch the free London tour thing and become the first Pay What You Want London Tour. This meant that people could pay what they felt the tour was worth, the guides are always the best they can be - not just turning up for a wage and that we could operate a fair business which is accessible to all, regardless of their budget. We are proud to have inspired other free London tours to move towards our pay what you want ethos.

Private Tours

All of our tours and workshops can be offered to groups on a private basis at a time to suit you. See our Private Tours or School Tours pages for more info.
