Key Highlights

  • Meet Shoreditch: London’s coolest neighbourhood has many faces
  • Ah, friendship: Become fast friends with your host, a local who knows East London through and through
  • All the guidance: Discover the drinking holes, eateries, vintage shops, pop-ups and street art that locals love
  • Overview

    Sure, you’ll have heard of Shoreditch, but to truly get to know the old dog, you’ll need more than an afternoon. Unless, of course, you take this City Unscripted experience. Consider this your personal intro to London’s favourite shape-shifter, a neighbourhood where weird and wonderful ensembles, wacky graffiti, heritage pubs, curry houses, indie shops and, these days, hotels and bars for the suited and booted, collide. Led by a local host, you’ll discover the places to eat, drink, peruse art, club and shop in Shoreditch – including some spots that aren’t in the neighbourhood guide.

    About your guide

    ‘Unscripted’ is right. This tour company is all about seeing London from the locals’ perspective. Don’t expect any regurgitated spiels, local hosts with City Unscripted take a more laid-back, impromptu approach to guiding.

    Here’s the plan…

    Itineraries don’t fly with City Unscripted. Experiences are completely personalised, meaning guides lead you through the spots that interest you, and share their own stories and take on the local scene along the way. So, there’s a few variables on this Shoreditch experience, but what we can tell you is: you’ll be paired with a local host with a passion for East London, and you’ll visit the shops, bars, cafes, art galleries beloved by locals. You’ll also stop in for a drink at one of the street food markets.
