The Leake Street “Graffiti/Banksy Tunnel” is a street art haven in the London Borough of Lambeth, England. A disused road tunnel in south London under the Waterloo train station was turned into a giant exhibition space by graffiti artist Banksy in 2008. Murals in the Bristol artist’s famous stencil style appear with work by 29 other artists in a half-mile stretch of the tunnel in Leake Street, Waterloo. Banksy kept the location a secret until the unveiling and since then it’s been a canvas for anyone with a paint can to come and dominate a space.
It is currently the biggest legal graffiti wall in London.
