My favourites colourful spots in London

I know, I know…  in London the sky is quite often grey. Pitch grey. But when the sun finally decides to come out, every corner of this beautiful city reflects a different light, and everything seems to be more beautiful.

As a Londoner I know it very well, and since I have been living here I’ve learnt to hunt for colourful spots in London everywhere.

Believe it or not, even in London you may find colours… Want a proof?

Colourful spots in London: streets

Some London yards – true colour blasts – are the perfect panacea even for the greyest day. My favourite is Neal’s Yard, a hidden gem short away from the Covent Garden din.

Picking the right way to get there is not that easy – I always get it wrong! :’D – but when you finally find it your heart and your eyes fill up with colour and joy!

The red thing

London would not be London without its phonebox, double-decker and mailbox red spots.

They are a real institution and I just love to bump into them while strolling around.

Basically you can find these colourful spots in London everywhere and it is so good!

Colourful spots in London: houses

I keep finding new colourful spots in London everywhere.

And every time I find a new one, it makes me smile.

But what about the colourful houses in London?

I’ve found dozen of them at every corner of the city, and often I try to imagine how it feels to live in such a joyful environment.

In some streets the “most colourful door house” competition is really getting going.

The result? Please judge yourself by these pictures!

Well, I hope that it is now clear why I disagree when someone tells me that London is a grey city…

There is plenty of colour here.

You just need to look for it.
