|Spray Art Graffiti|
Saturday November 27, 2021
Beneath Waterloo Station lie the Leake Street Arches and the famous Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel. It is this 300 metre (985 feet) wall that I had the good fortune to visit on one of my latest walks.
Every piece of wall was covered, including the ceiling and rubbish bins, with amazing artworks. Some had been up for a few hours, others were still wet while some were still being created.
It was awe inspiring watching the artists work and to see their ideas come to life, in front of me.

Thankfully it was a chilly afternoon, so not too many people were in the tunnel. I would think that in the summer months the heat from people mixing with the spray paint fumes could prove to be a little intoxicating.
Bars, restaurants, London’s first board game café, kitchens, venue spaces and much more are all situated in the various arches, of which there are eight, beneath Waterloo Station.
