Just one stroll through Instagram and you’ll definitely be subject to an influencer posing amongst coloured houses, cherry blossom wrapped around the surrounding trees and not a rubbish bin in sight.
Colourful streets are quite the attraction when it comes to a pose nowadays, and turns out London has its fair which is why we’ve had a scout for all of the most attractive ones in London to add a bit of colour to your life.
Bywater Street, Chelsea
Never mind being called Bywater street, this one should be called Bygolly street as we’re so taken aback by its beauty! The Chelsea gem is the hunting ground of bloggers and influencers alike, all catfighting their way to the front in order to grab that sacred pic. Akin to a tourist attraction, this street is a real winner on the colourful houses front with purples, blues, pinks and more on offer.
Chalcot Square, Primrose Hill
Primrose Hill is simply renowned for its beauty, with large green spaces offset by cute boutique stores and towering townhouses. This particular square oozes colour, with bright houses and brimming gardens making it an idyllic spot to prop your arm against the railings and “say cheeeeese” to your heart’s content!
Kelly Street, Kentish Town
Whilst Kentish Town doesn’t necessarily ring out Instagrammable – unless you’re shooting a grungy, urban snap – it does have some delectable hidden gems scattered around its vicinity like Kelly Street which is just a stone’s throw from the station. The Victorian Street features all of the pastel hues you need but mind the dustbins when getting your ideal shot, after all you don’t want it to look rubbish…
Bonny Street, Camden
Bonny Street is a truly fitting name for this Camden offering which really is ever so bonny! The pastel row can be a little car heavy but provides all of the Instagrammable-ness you need!
Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden
Everyone’s favourite courtyard, Neal’s Yard, is not only the home of coveted cafe’s and beauty bars but also the brightest of buildings that boast colours a far cry from the pastel streets of Chelsea’s Bywater Street. Head off Monmouth Street and walk down the narrow passageway and it’ll be like discovering a whole new world away from bustling London.
Conduit Mews, Paddington
This tucked away terrace may be the haunt of those who like to be far removed from the gaze of the street, but it’s also a place brimming with the most striking of colours that we can’t but help try and grab a snap whenever we walk by. If you’re a lover of bright yellow, this is the street for you!
Notting Hill has a plethora of #streetgoal offerings, from Farmer Street and Kensington Park Road to Ledbury Road and Hillgate Street. The area is bursting with colour and offers, perhaps, the most eclectic range of vibrant streets in all of London. Things that we often hear when down there snapping a pic includes “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a house, asking it to love me,” oh and Hugh Grant making yet another cup of tea to solve all problems.
Godfrey Street, Chelsea
It’s not just Notting Hill that’s littered with colourful streets, Chelsea is in full force of the technicoloured delights too. Our favourite spot is Godfrey Street for everything from bright bursts of sunshine yellow through to pastel accents beautifully lining the terrace houses.
