Since the late nineties the East End has turned into rather a popular and fashionable area of London. It’s been subject to a healthy gentrifying over the last few decades, yet still holds the tattoo’s of it’s working class history on its walls.
The etymology of the word Graffiti is based in the Italian “Graffiato”, literally meaning scratching on a surface. We know now, of course the singular is graffito, but you’re unlikely to see just the one on on this Graffiti and Eat Tour of the East End. Visit the famous marks and creations of the biggest names in underground street art, like BANKSY, Ben Eine and Invader.
