London Street Art Tours

There's much more to street art than Banksy. Graff guide Griff knows many of the artists personally, and will open your eyes to this vibrant subculture. By the end, you'll be able to tell your Roas from your Malarkys and your Eines from your Sweet Toofs. And Banksy? You'll also be shown a few of his lesser-known pieces, hidden from general view. Tours usually focus on the Shoreditch area, this being London's main hotbed of street art. Weekend tours will also take you up to Hackney on a more extended expedition.

• From Old Street tube station every Tuesday (10am) and Thursday (6pm), £10, two hours. A four-hour tour costs £15, on Saturdays at 11am, streetartlondon.co.uk/tours
