Arts Activities in London

While the restrictions are still in place, a great way to rejuvenate would be to stroll around the streets of London.

What better way to explore diversity than colours splashed by local Londoners?

So entrancing are the artworks that the London city has a designated Graffiti tour. This 2-hour trip will take you and your family to the highlight spots. There is a lot to take in! So if you like artwork or walking, or both, then get on with this. While on this tour, do not miss out on the “Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel”.
