Down narrow lanes and anonymous doorways, the East End contemporary art scene is one of the world's most vibrant and challenging. In London Art Insider you'll get the low down on the areas most exciting galleries, artists and creative movements.

Just east of London's financial district, and once a scruffy hinterland, the early 1990's marked the start of a transformation for the East End. Artists and dealers, attracted by low rents and derelict warehouses, moved in to make the neighbourhood their own. Now thousands of artists live and play here, fuelling a creative energy.

Today it plays a pivotal role in the world's contemporary art scene, showcasing the work of emerging fledglings and well-known artists in hundreds of galleries; small and intimate workshops share the same postcode alongside elegant established art galleries.

The Art Insider half-day tour starts in the hip east end enclave of Shoreditch, the epicenter of contemporary bohemia, and continues a little further east into Bethnal Green. More convivial and residential than a typical art haven, the area is punctuated with some of London's most interesting and unique gallery spaces.

Your Insider Art Guide will be on hand to offer insight as you wind your way through artists' works and exhibits. Art Insider is a fascinating glimpse into the East End's refreshing and sometimes brash artistic community.
