London, England is one of my favourite places for colourful houses. West and North London are particularly fabulous so here are my top spots.

Of course you’ll find them all over the city but here are a few of my favourite areas for rainbow homes…

1. Chalcot Square & Chalcot Street

Close to Chalk Farm underground station, you’ll find the wealthy Primrose Hill district. Within it are these streets which are absolute Instagram goals, especially Chalcot Square which is set around a leafy park and Chalcot Street which connects to it.

2. Hillgate Place & Farm Place, Notting Hill

Just a five-minute walk from Notting Hill underground station, you’ll find Rainbow Row Nottinghill. These are many colourful streets in this area but I like Hillgate Place and Farm Place, home to countless Notting Hill coloured houses.

3. Kelly Street, Kentish Town

Kelly Street of London is tucked away off Kentish Town Road. The houses are all identical with matching balconies but in different colours. I wonder how much they sell for. MILLS, I reckon.

4. Portobello Road

Famous for its antique market and being featured in the Notting Hill movie, this colourful street in London is gorgeous.

On market days you’ll have to shoot high with your shots to avoid getting the hundreds of visitors in your photo – this area is VERY popular.

5. Bonny Street, Camden

The whole of Camden is bursting with colour and life but take a five-minute walk to Bonny Street and you’ll lose the tourists and get a clear shot of these pretty homes.

You’ll find this colourful London street beside Camden Road overground station (not to be confused with Camden Town underground station which is the main high street with all the action. Though if you do confuse the two, at least they’re not far apart).
