What you'll do

Long a draw (no pun intended) for local and London-based graffiti and street artists, Brighton like Bristol still has plenty of raw, exciting talent throwing fresh work up on the walls and surfaces of the city's streets. Get a taste for the city's unique street art scene by exploring the neighbourhood with local expert and artist, REQ, who walks and talks you through individual pieces as well as giving you an overview of this colourful, often un-commissioned side of Brighton's creative scene.
Other things to note
As this is a walking tour, please wear comfortable shoes or trainers (and bring an umbrella, just in case). Meet at the gallery 10 minutes before the start time and at the end of the tour we will return to the gallery for drinks.

Where you'll be

By nature, street art is fleeting, changeable and impermanent, so the tour never follows the exact same route. Expect to venture through the famous Lanes, alleyways and hidden corners of Brighton to uncover a selection of the freshest, best and longest-lasting graffiti and street art in the city.

**Each booking also receives a FREE £10 voucher to spend at www.entergallery.com

We had a great time on saturday following Req through the busy north and south lanes, Req's is the perfect tour guide and strikes the perfect balance between informative and entertaining. We saw some great street art and learnt much more about the culture and background of the artists themselves. It was fab-u-lus! Thanks Req.

Discovered lots of locations and a lot of interesting street art I would never have been aware of. Really enjoyed the tour from start to finish and came away from it with a better understanding of the roots of street art in Brighton, and the artists that have contributed to the city's varied artwork both past and present. Didn't realise how many different street art techniques/methods/styles used by street artists to achieve their 'art statements'/signatures. If your in Brighton and have a couple of hours to spare I'd highly recommend scoping out this tour. Great host and great value for money.

The tour opened my eyes to what was around me and i got to see things i would have missed. It was interesting and Req answered all our questions. Hes a very interesting guy. Worth every minute. You should do this on your stay.

We enjoyed the experience, Req covers the ins and outs of graffiti as an art form but also the cultural and social elements. His style is quite dry and sarcastic, which we liked, but he’s still open to questions and interaction. Would recommend the tour!
