There is always something more, something different that London as to offer its guests. It is no wonder that people keep coming back to the city. The capital of England and the home to the surviving royal family in England, London is full of surprises.

London is well known for its art, culture and heritage. A tour to see something different in these genres might be a good idea next time one is there to visit London.

The moment we speak of art a picture of beautiful creations on the canvases and the various papers come to our mind. Art can also signify the various sculptures that one creates. However, art is not always so simple to distinguish. There are art forms which some might term as chaos. These are the ones which lie on the border of legality and illegality. Some know these as graffiti, while some others as wall art. For centuries this form of art has prevailed. Exactly what initiated it and why it has taken such a major form cannot be said certainly. However, one can guess that this form of art is also one type of expression, it is the expression of all the things unsaid within the artists that they wish to make public. It has also been the tool of protest for many over the years. The problem is wall art or graffiti has always been seen as a form of vandalism by the government and the upholder of the law and order in any place. This has made this art linked to the underground world. However, this has not deterred the artists from speaking their mind or painting their thoughts and imaginations. The wall art is probably one of the strongest forms of art which do not pay the artists anything in return.

London is no stranger to wall art or street art. There are numerous streets in London where one will find such display of wall arts and street arts. Being so full of art in London one can actually plan a trip exploring these street arts. Some of the street arts are simply brilliant, showing the extent to which the human imagination is capable of going. Some of them are expression of the angst within the artist. There is always a story behind these arts. The best way to travel through these streets and explore them is to get a guide – a local street art enthusiast. A good guide will not only take the person through the best of these arts but will also narrate the fascinating tales behind each of these. London has a number of strange places to visit, and definitely a trip to check the street arts, walking through the nooks and corners of the city is one of them.
