This Funzing Experience:
Calling all curious explorers, East London local Simon (founder of alternative Hackney Tours) invites you to discover quirky Hackney Wick with him and find out why he thinks it's the most interesting place in London!

How did Hackney Wick come to be a modern art colony? What was it before and what will it be next? With lots of great photo opportunities from street art to old industrial sites, you'll see how old East London lies just beneath the surface of the newest neighbourhood of the post-Olympic city.

Even if you think you know the Wick already, Simon will help you see it through new eyes a unique perspective. Then he'll take you to the local pub and talk about it over an included real ale!

He's been living warehouse culture from the inside since 2009 so he knows the scene. You'll check out some culture jamming and find out how DIY culture shaped the modern Wick. How does Tech City fit in with Burning Man? Where are the East London artists going next? How is Hackney Wick like Berlin?

This part of town is set for *big* changes, all eyes are on Hackney Wick. Come see it unfold before yours.
