"In its site on Bishopsgate since 1804, Dirty Dick's was named after warehouse owner Richard Bentley who refused to wash or clean after the death of his fiancee. He became a legend in the area and his legacy lives on in the name."

The street art on this wall is constantly changing, which makes for a beautiful and rousing walk to work every morning. Expect the unexpected on Great Eastern Street!
