Hosier Lane is a cobble-stoned alleyway in the southern edge of the central city grid. It is a much-celebrated landmark, due to its prominent graffiti artwork covering all of its walls.

Artists from around the world paint the walls nearly every week as the local council have designated it a “Graffiti tolerance zone”. So on every trip you are always bound to find new and awesome pieces to look at. It is a huge tourist attraction featuring in state-sponsored adverts as well as a popular backdrop for fashion and wedding photography. And let’s not forget a great spot for a cheeky Instagram picture too. This super colourful display of raw talent is a definite must see!
