So, although the artworks are forever changing, here is a guide to the 10 best, most dynamic hubs for street art in Shoreditch.

Rivington Street

Great Eastern Street is home to two graffiti covered tube trains perched on containers on top of a building, captioned: ‘Lets Adore And Endure Each Other.’ You can also find a lovely tribute to the late actor Bob Hoskins, this piece refers to his lead in 1986 neo-noir film Mona Lisa.
