How fast do I have to be?
Not very! This is a group tour welcoming all abilities. The run stops regularly so you cantake photos and learn more about the artwork. You're never far from a breather. And our guides are trained to never leave anyone behind.
Will there be time for photos?
Do I have to stay at the Dorsett to attend?
Absolutely not! Although it's a really great hotel, so if you haven't organised your accommodation yet, check out their rooms here. Plus Dorsett guests get special rates on the tour - ask your concierge for more information!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Just done Street Art Tour of London, and loved it. Second run I’ve done with Vanessa (did LGBT history tour last year) and they’ve both been great. Nobody gets left behind and Vanessa is unfailingly cheerful too! Will definitely do some more.
CLAIRE STIBBON, 5* FACEBOOK REVIEW
"Had a fantastic time running around East London this afternoon with Vanessa on the Street Art running tour. This tour is jam packed with content. Vanessa has obviously researched the subject matter thoroughly and clearly enjoys delivering her tours (this is my second one so far). Highly recommend Secret London Runs for anyone."
CARIN WHITFIELD, FACEBOOK RECOMMENDATION
"Absolutely amazing fun ... Vanessa was so enthusiatically knowledgeable. I had never realised how much stunning street art was in London over what felt a really short distance. Lots of stops and photo opportunities. I had so much fun I will definitely be booking to join another run."
