What makes this tour special

Your Experience

The majority of visitors to London only get to experience the art scene through its galleries. Here at Touriocity, we want to change this and allow you to observe and interact with the real London art scene. That is why we have set up our own art experience that takes you behind-the-scenes of one of London’s most contemporary, and secluded, art scenes. In East London’s Hackney Wick live a group of artists who have banded together to form a self-sustaining artistic community devoted to exploring and expanding their own creativity. There you will meet Kato, an artist working in the local area. He will be your insider to unlock some of the most elusive doors in London’s Art scene. The unique environment of Hackney Wick is one of London's untouched cultural gems and although gentrification and capitalism is coming, the area being tipped as London's hottest new place to be, we still have valuable time to appreciate its diversity and creativity.
Your Day with Us

Beyond his art endeavours, Kato also runs seminars on using meditation and mindfulness to unlock creativity, as well as being a fully qualified medical doctor. Finally, similar to us at Touriocity, Kato believes that deep down all humans are creative and looks forward to working with you on expressing and enjoying this creativity within yourself.
