So this is definitely the place to be if you’re in need of a colourful photography fix in capturing off the beaten track graffiti images.
You name it, every colour under the magical rainbow can be found at the Leake Street Tunnel with a glimpse into the British psyche. After having read quite a few good reviews on it I decided to take a trip down there too. If you’re in the neighbourhood (located under the Waterloo train station and a 5 minute walk from the London Eye) it’s definitely worth checking out.
The street artists are surely keeping the art of spray painting alive by offering their take on what urban art is all about. When I first arrived it was not only about photographing the images that were before me, but rather taking in the movement of the sprayers while they created their designs and understanding why they go to the lengths they do in creating this type of art.
For directions my advice would be to walk east from the London Eye across the square. Cross Belvedere Road and continue east along Chicheley Street. Cross York Street, then turn left and walk east into the tunnel. Voila, you’re there!
