Bristol’s rich street art history makes it a unique city to view the art form. Scour the streets of Bristol and you’ll struggle not to find a cutting-edge piece of graffiti art decorating the city’s walls.  Bristol-born Banksy took to the streets as a youngster and as a result, some of his earliest work is hidden around Bristol. M Shed museum currently houses Banksy’s Grim Reaper, following its rescue from rust from the hull of Thekla nightclub; you’ll find the ‘Angel Bust’ in Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, the ‘Girl with the Pierced Eardrum’ is tucked away on the Harbourside walk and his ‘Well-Hung Lover’ lies just off Park Street and there are plenty more to discover. Urban street art tours rank highly as a Bristol ‘must do’, giving insights into the life and work of Banksy and revealing the stories behind the paintings and culture that makes Bristol the street art and graffiti capital of the UK.
