In the past decade Bristol has been synonymous with street art, specifically graffiti from the artist Banksy.
Although he isn’t the be all and end all in the UK street art world, his wide-spread acclaim cannot be ignored.
Many of his best known pieces first appeared here, and many exhibitions have been held locally.
All this attention has lead to a healthy appreciation of street art in Bristol, along with a large fan base of up-and-coming artists.
The city’s involvement in street art actually goes back a few decades when numerous artists, were active in the original 1980s graffiti boom.
Although there are many fan-based sites offering interactive maps of the city and advice on where to see the best pieces, Bristol Street Art Tours offer a walking guide which will ensure you don’t miss the most exciting works.
