For me, the best way to experience London is through the city's streets. Yes, monuments such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament are iconic, but the true beauty of the city lies in the meandering roads where Londoner's reside.
London boasts some of the most beautiful streets in the world so it's no wonder my Instagram is somewhat dedicated to the enviable houses that sit pretty along them. I really enjoy seeing the way people express themselves through their homes, and painted houses and doors make for a cheerful neighbourhood. Now come with me and I’ll show you some of London’s prettiest streets. Most of these I have seen, but a few I wish to visit too...
Hillgate Place - Notting Hill
This street truly sums up the whimsical, colourful charm that Notting Hill is so famous for.
Kynance Mews - South Kensington
The archway leading to this set of Mews is every Instagrammer's favourite.
St. Lukes Mews - Notting Hill
This pink mews house is possibly my favourite in London.
While still a beauty all year round for its glamourous array of designer flagship stores, Bond Street truly comes alive at Christmas. Tiffany's and Cartier are my favourite this year for their decorations are second to none.
Doria Road - Fulham
I would love to imagine myself sitting out on the balconies of these properties, reading a book with a coffee in hand. This street is lined with beautiful old-fashioned homes.
Bywater Street - Chelsea
This colourful street just off of King's Road is one of the streets that'll instantly lift your spirits.
Kelly Street - Kentish town
The reason why these homes are painted to brightly is Dulux shot an advert here many, many years ago and painted each house.
Chalcot Crescent - Primrose Hill
Many Paddington Bear fans make a pilgrimage here since this is where the film version is set.
Conduit Mews - Paddington
Behind the red-bricked streets of Paddington you'll find this elegant set of mews.
Holland Park Mews
Possibly my favourite of them all. This high-glamour and luxurious set of mews ooze sophistication. But for over a million pounds, I think it's safe to say they will remain merely in my dreams...
