I know, I know… in London the sky is quite often grey. Pitch grey.
Since I have been living here I’ve learnt to hunt for colours everywhere, and when the Sun finally decides to come out every corner of this city reflects a different light and everything seems to be more beautiful.
Believe it or not, even in London you may find colours… Want a proof?

Some London yards – true colour blasts – are the perfect panacea even for the greyest day. My favourite is Neal’s Yard, a hidden gem short away from the Covent Garden din.
Picking the right way to get there is not that easy – I always get it wrong! :’D – but when you finally find it your heart and your eyes fill up with colour and joy!
The red thing
An institution. London would not be London without its phonebox, double-decker and mailbox red spots.
I keep finding new ones and every time they make me smile. In some streets the “most colourful door house” competition is really getting going. The result? Please judge yourself by these pictures!
Well, I hope that it is now clear why I disagree when someone tells me that London is a grey city…
There is plenty of colour here.
You just need to look for it.
