There is a global myth about London being gloomy and grey. Well, that’s just unfair to the wonders of the British Capital. Rainbows, flowers, unicorns, fruits, candy… If you love colorful things (who doesn’t?) and colorful backgrounds for your Instagram feed, try these places in London where you can’t possibly go wrong!


Restaurants and Cafes

  1. The Churchill Arms

Globally recognized by its exuberant facade full of flowers and plants – this is one of the most photographed places in town, and we can see why (you’ll see it too when you get there!)

Which one do you think is the cutest Pub of London? Churchill Arms or Crown and Anchor? Churchill Arms yearly expenditure on these flower baskets is about 25000£. . . . . . . #england #london #britain #earthescapes @bbc_travel @uk @kings_hdr @map_of_europe @theglobewanderer @travelanddestinations #photosofbritain#bbcbritain#living_europe#ig_europa#thisisscotland#awesome_earthpix#earthcapture#bbcearth #wonderful_places #lovegreatbritain @british @uk #travellingthroughtheworld @visitengland #bbc_travel @earth @travelanddestinations @travelandleisure #tlpicks @travel_drops_ @earthofficial #kings_villages #thetowerbridge #bbcearth#tourtheplanet #map_of_europe#hello_worldpics#beautifuldestinations #living_destinations #BestVacations #discoverearth #lovegreatbritain #earthfocus #ig_captures #travelawesome @earthfocus @bbcearth @awesome_phototrip #earthpix @awesome.photographers @wonderful_places @awesome_earthpix @earthpix @awesomeglobe @nationaldestinations @deutschland_greatshots

  1. Peggy Porschen

Probably the girliest and most flowery café in town, the facade of this cake emporium appears to have every color in existence. The best part is that the palette changes every season, we presume summer is the best!

Sometimes it feels like there are so many places that I long to see and experience that I’m actually stressed out about seeing them all in time 🙈 Surely some language has a word for this! Do you know this feeling? Maybe the lesson in traveling is to appreciate the places you’ve been and to learn to be content after all (sorry for the deep thoughts today y’all, this is where my train of thought is today ❤️) – #london #thisislondon #flowers #peggyporschen #communityfirst #peggyporschencakes #flowerbomb #londonlife #londonlover #ldn #prettycitylondon #travelawesome #visitlondon #uk #london4all #beautifuldestinations #ig_london #igerslondon #londontown #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #teamkaptainkenny #girlaroundworld

  1. Sketch

It’s like this restaurant was designed to be the best Instagram set. Actually, calling it a restaurant would be disrespectful, Sketch is a center for food, art and music. Each room has a different style and design, so you can be as playful as you want.

  1. Shoreditch

The absolute must for street art in London. The streets of the trendy neighborhood will offer many colors and shapes for your urban photography.

  1. Leake Street Tunnel

Not as touristy as Shoreditch, but some say it’s actually THE place to get the real feel of local street art. Walking through the tunnel you’ll find everything from the most basic graffiti to the most elaborate painting.




  1. Notting Hill:

Little colorful houses, what’s not to love? We’ve all seen photos of this cute neighborhood and now you can get your own shot. Tip: During the weekend the streets are flooded with tourists. Better to go on weekdays for a clean picture.

  1. Neil’s Yard

There is a lot going on in this small alley. All the walls are painted in bright colors, PLUS: it’s close to Covent Garden, a former market with a beautiful infrastructure where you can take even more beautiful pictures!


Beautiful as Fairytale, isn’t it

  1. London Eye at night

The queues might be too long to board the London Eye, but it’s definitely worth to walk around it at night and take great pictures of its colored lights reflected on the water!

  1. God’s Own Junkyard

The largest stock of vintage neons and signs in Europe, turned into a Museum! You’ll never find a place so full of color, light and urban vibes like this one. Really unique.

Don’t play games 💡

A little extra

  1. Kings Cross Tunnel

A beautifully designed subway tunnel linking transport hubs to new public spaces, restaurants, offices and homes at King’s Cross. The wall is made of LED lights with various colors, so you can play with different “moods”.
