Originally brought to fame by notorious street artist Banksy, Leake Street, also known as the iconic ‘graffiti tunnel’ links Lower Marsh to the South Bank and is one of London’s most popular urban street art locations.

As one of the few legal walls in the UK where artists can express their creativity in public, the atmospheric tunnel is a haven for graffiti artists around the world to leave their mark.

Leading-edge lighting design consultancy Nulty recently completed the work on the regeneration of Leake Street Arches in London’s Waterloo, including lighting 300m of dramatic street art.  Nulty’s main objective was to highlight and celebrate the artwork, whilst improving the quality of the light throughout this urban and individual space.
