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.
