5K STREET ART TOUR

Explore Shoreditch's most vibrant street art on a 5k guided running tour every Wednesday morning.

It was great to learn about the different artists and try and spot a few on the way round. Vanessa, as always, was terrific. Thank you for a great morning in the East End of London.

Caroline Dunleavy, Wimbledon

Every Wednesday at 6.30am, Dorsett City Hotel, Aldgate

Run through the ever-changing canvas of the East End, stopping to admire, photograph and learn about its breath-taking street art. 

Your guide will help you identify work from the internationally renowned artists that flock to embellish the walls of Shoreditch and tell you more about their background and inspiration.

The tour starts and ends at the Dorsett Hotel, right next to Aldgate Station. All abilities are welcome on this tour - we're never far from a breather and we don't leave anyone behind.
