Although I'm a frequent visitor to London – Leake Street (also called Banksy Tunnel for a festival he held there in 2008), was a complete surprise on my last trip. The street is about 300 yards long, located under Waterloo Station and closed to cars. It's the one place in London where Grafitti and urban art is sort of legal. As you can see from the photographs above, the artwork is pretty spectacular, and this urban art museum is definitely worth stopping by. You can make your mark and add to it, but don't tag over the good stuff, that's seriously frowned upon.
How did I find out about it? Through my fabulous new friends at Small Car Big City Tours – they included this gem on their hidden secrets tour!
