Photo Essay: Georgetown Street Art

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our Disclosure here

One of our favorite things to do during our time in Georgetown, besides eating loads of street food, was to spend our days walking the streets to discover the street art. 

The displays of street art in this town are sites to see in their own right. Upon arriving in the city, you can pick up an official street map guide map at just about any hotel or hostel in the downtown area.

The guide map will show you the location of the most prominent ones, which are fantastic, but it is just as fun seeing the random ones that have popped up along the route between the marked ones. 

They are all very creative and being painted on historical buildings gives them all a great feel and flare, as all of downtown Georgetown is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
