|Finding quaintness in London|

As much as I love the bright lights and tall towers of London Town, I think there is a charm and beauty to be found in its little nooks and corners, which are hidden all around the town. So this is my little quest to find all things - pretty, cute and quaint - in this city I adore and am lucky enough to call home.

It has the cutest place to unleash my inner Cookie Monster. πŸ“Notting Hill.

It's where I can find ivy creeping down houses in the heart of town. πŸ“Mayfair.

It surprises with spots of unexpected colour and cuteness to sweep away the gloom of a typical London day. πŸ“ Somewhere near Brockley Market.

It has houses that look like this! πŸƒ πŸ“St. Luke's Mews.

It has cafΓ©s which look as delicious as the food and drink they serve. πŸ“ Chiltern Street.

It's where I fell in love with this little Morris Minor! πŸ’• πŸ“ Elder Street.

It's famous pubs, renowned for fine liquor, also have dapper bicycles and cute facades. πŸ“ Marylebone.

It's home to this cute little munchkin and her breathtaking hairstyle. πŸ“Toynbee Hall.

It changes colour with the seasons. πŸ‚πŸ πŸ“ Westbourne Park.

It has history paved in its streets and preserved in its houses. πŸ“ Dennis Severs House, Folgate Street.

It hides little secrets which play peek-a-boo with you. πŸ“ Princelet Street.

It leaves you with memories of time gone by and makes you wonder about the times to come. πŸ“ Portobello Road Market.

London is always alive and with that life comes constant change.So I can safely say, I can never stop exploring because there is always something new to find and fall in love with here. Thank you as always to @kr1th1ka for posing in my photos.

    @farhad yes!! The glass, steel and concrete and the gloomy skies, eclipse these little islands of colour, but they are there and cheer me up immensely! πŸ˜ƒ

    Hi, i found this post and i really can relate to this. Perhaps you are a kind of person who appreciate little things (like me) and feel warmth through simple yet enchanted facade in every alley you go to. Warmest greetings from Indonesia, hopefully I can see your city once again! :)
