Brighten Up Your Trip With These Colourful Locations in England

The most colourful locations within England.

We have listed some beautiful locations in England that are filled with colour, perfect for photos and worth visiting for sightseeing.

Lavenham, Suffolk

A colourful, quirky town filled with history!

Lavenham is Britain’s best preserved mediaeval village and is also one of Suffolk’s most significant wool towns, set in the middle of the gorgeous Suffolk landscape. Timber-framed houses line the tiny alleys and alleyways leading up towards the spectacular market area, adding to the mediaeval appeal. Lavenham had been the 14th richest town throughout Tudor England due to its famed Lavenham Blue broadcloth, and there is plenty of rich history to be discovered.

A guided tour, which you can book using the Tourist Office along Lady Street, is the finest way to view this ancient village rich in history. A knowledgeable Blue Badge guide will walk you along neighbourhoods dotted with Instagrammable homes.

You can go about for an hour and a half, clicking photos and listening to stories about Lavenham’s turbulent past.

Norwich, Norfolk

This well-known city has a distinctive row of brightly coloured buildings that reflect in the gorgeous canal.

It’s a lovely spot to live, with historic mansions to visit and the neighbouring Mid-Yare National Nature Reserve, which extends into the Broads National Park.

Norwich is unique. It’s geographical isolation from the expanding sameness of many other English cities have given it a rich character of its own, an exciting blend of present and past; of openness and eccentric appeal.

It has a thriving arts, music, and cultural scene, excellent independent and High Street shopping, a quaint covered market, lively restaurants, bars, and nightlife, and a heritage that is a delight to explore.

Cliftonwood, Bristol

Cliftonwood is mostly made up of Victorian terraced residences, several of which are brightly painted.

Cliftonwood (named because of the wood in the middle that is part of Goldney Hall grounds) is a quiet neighbourhood overlooking Bristol Harbourside, while being just half a mile from the city centre.

Cliftonwood has just two routes in and out (which explains the peacefulness), and it’s perhaps best known among most Bristolians as well as tourists as the vibrant suburb seen from Baltic Wharf!

Nobody knows when or why the homes in the neighbourhood began to be painted… A certain ex-Bristol Mayor, as well as a local ex-estate agent, think they were the first to paint their house a colour besides grey-plaster-on-red-brick. It’s still a mystery! The homes are an iconic element of Bristol’s skyline, regardless of how the trend originated.

Brighton and Hove

Blaker St is Brighton’s most colourful street and is an Instagrammer’s dream. A whole street of rainbow-colored houses.

Known for being, colourful, vibrant and creative! There are many places to visit and activities to try in Brighton & Hove, from classic tourist sites to seaside trips.

Weymouth is a classic coastal resort town with a vast stretch of golden beach.

The fairground, Punch and Judy performance, donkey rides, and the sand sculpting pod. The beach’s eastern end is calmer and more popular with water sports enthusiasts who want to kayak, jet ski, or standup paddle board.
