There’s nothing nicer than mooching around London streets and coming across the many rainbow painted houses in some of our city's neighbourhoods. You'll find the prettiest and most colourful streets in west London, so here are our picks of some of the most picturesque spots to explore.

Little Miss Notting Hill

Farmer Street, Notting Hill

Away from the noise of Notting Hill Gate lies Farmer Street, home to multi-coloured houses – and if you’re lucky, you’ll spot one of the many vintage VW vans parked outside too.

St Stephen’s Mews, Notting Hill

One of London’s many pretty mews roads in central Notting Hill.

This is a quintessentially picturesque mews road in Knightsbridge.

Kensington Park Road, Notting Hill

Home to some of the best restaurants in Notting Hill, Kensington Park Road is also a pastel house lover’s dream – make sure you catch it in magnolia blossom season for the full effect. 

Little Miss Notting Hill

Ledbury Road, Notting Hill

The famous pink doorstep is a firm favourite of London’s fashion bloggers, so head to Ledbury Road is to find some of Notting Hill’s most vibrantly coloured houses (and a great pub on the corner, The Walmer Castle).

Trevor Square, Knightsbridge

Pretty as a picture, Trevor Square in Knightsbridge is the queen of London’s property crown with some of the most enviable properties around.

You’ll think you’re in Brighton at the seaside on this perfect pastel-painted street – but you’re actually just off the many shops, bars and restaurants of King's Road.

St Luke’s Mews, Notting Hill

Every London-based Instagram feed likely has a picture here. It is prime real estate and one of the prettiest mews in London. Head here and then make sure you stop off for a spot of brunch or coffee on All Saints Road later, at either The Tin Shed or Book & Kitchen.

Little Miss Notting Hill

Hillgate Street, Notting Hill 

Located in Hillgate Village, this little cross-section of roads is the perfect introduction to the many multi-hued houses of Notting Hill and home to a great pub, The Hillgate, and a top brunch spot, Egg Break.
