Had a great tour yesterday with a group of Italians. Went for Pie N Mash on Hoxton High Street and finished at Brick Lane. Best part of the tour was being interviewed by Jamie Oliver's PR team outside his Old Street restaurant 'Fifteen'. They were promoting Jamies charity work and wanted to chat with me about why I include Jamie and the restaurant on the East London tour. Its fantastic that Jamie Oliver gives opportunities to young disadvantged people by having them gain qualifications and experience in his restaurant.

Anyway, after the tour I walked around the East End taking snaps of some of the Street Art. East London is an outside art gallery, with some fantastic, vibrant, talented artists. Have a look at some of the work.

Some brilliant work by STIKS.
Just off Old Street and Brick Lane.

Work by ROA. The detail in the animals is amazing. They can take up to days to complete.
