Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel

Public Art in The South Bank

A dingy road under Waterloo station (enter from Lower Marsh or York Rd) seems an unlikely place to find art, but the walls of the 200m-long Leake Street Tunnel are covered from floor to ceiling with some seriously impressive spray-painted works. Opened by famous street artist Banksy in 2008, the tunnel still sees new taggers and artists turn up daily. Banksy's work is long gone, but you can watch today's artists in action as they paint over what was put up the day before.
