London’s Hidden Gems – Bywater Street, Chelsea

We’ve seen so many beautiful pictures around the internet on blogs and on Instagram of the ‘hidden’ cute colourful London.

We decided to go exploring and let us tell you, wow! Who knew there were so many pretty pink doors and colourful houses in London? These aren’t the usual things people go to London for but we had great fun on our little door hunt! So much fun that we have decided to go again and again and again because after some research it turns our there are loads to see. Too many for just one visit as it turned out. We were bit optimistic with the time it would take.

Bywater Street

To catch up with our first door hunt in the beautiful Trevor Square, click here. But to continue in our quest to find London’s Hidden Gems, our search took us to this pretty stretch of houses in Chelsea’s Bywater Street. Aren’t these houses simply dreamy?! Each property on this tiny little street have painted their houses in different colours. What wonderful street spirit right!


We took the tube to Sloane Square to check out some of the sites in the area. Walking down Kings Road Anna wanted to show Sam the Saatchi Gallery. They are open 7 days a week and the best part, free entry!

Each Saturday on the Duke of York Square, right outside the gallery, there is a lovely fine food market. You can eat here (prepare to picnic on the ground though) or shop for later. They have lovely food, cakes and drink.

Anna has been there before during the London Fashion Weekend in autumn 2016 and highly recommend a visit.

She wanted to show Sam the happy goodness that is Bywayer Street and it didn’t disappoint! Sun or clouds this place will put a smile on your face. It’s worth a visit for a totally Instagramable shot!


It turns out we weren’t the only bloggers on this street. As we were about to leave, 3 ladies waited their turn patiently to have some photos taken outside this pretty pink house. How could anyone resist?

Please do leave us a comment, as usual we’d love to hear from you!

Until Our Next Adventure,
