East End Graffiti Tour

The East End of London has been known for a lot of things.  Mostly bad things.  But lately it’s been gentrifying, and we spend more time in East London locales (like Broadway Market and Columbia Road) and shockingly little time Hugh Grant-spotting in fancy Notting Hill.

This past Saturday, we met some of these new school East End hipsters at dawn for a 3-hour cycle tour of Shoreditch, Bethnal Green, Brick Land and Hackney (somehow my kind wife agreed to getting up at 5:30 on Easter Sunday to do this!).  I found out about it via the London Cyclist website, and it was put on by Pamela Parker of UnderCurrent Design, an MA student at Central Saint Martins.
