When to see wisteria in London

That beautiful purple sea of flowers slowly starts to take over London in April. During a warm Spring, wisteria will bloom all the way into May.

You will spot the beautiful wisteria in London cascading down houses, fences, city walls and shops. Wisteria season comes promptly after cherry blossom season and gives all of the locals some hope that warmer weather is on the horizon.

After years of chasing wisteria around London, I have come up with some of my favourite spots and I think it’s about time to share them with you!

Below you will find a list of my top locations for Wisteria in London.

Wisteria at St Luke’s Mews

St Lukes Mews Wisteria

St Luke’s Mews is always my first stop. Mostly because I love the colourful houses in the background, but also because it can get crazy busy with crowds as the day goes on!

Wisteria at Lonsdale Road

Lonsdale Road Wisteria

This house will stop you in your tracks. The lovely pink door with the wisteria growing up the house is serious house goals.

Wisteria at Portobello Road

Portobello Road London

Portobello Road is famous for its market. I’m the first to admit that I often chase new food stalls in the market, being the foodie that I am! However, in the Spring, the wisteria takes over and smells amazing as you walk down the road.

Wisteria at Bedford Gardens

Beautiful Wisteria at Bedford Gardens

Hello photographers!! Bedford gardens road has many houses with wisteria, but this iconic spot is always a top priority when you visit. The blue plaque also adds an extra wow factor and makes this, in my opinion, the house of dreams!

Wisteria at Gordon Place

Gordon Place, London

I mean… Simple and elegant. Do I need to say more?

Wisteria at Campden Grove

Camden Grove, London

This wisteria is slowly taking over! I love how so much it is growing together, really creating a full bloom.

Wisteria at Stafford Terrace

Stafford Terrace vintage car and wisteria

Hello Stafford Terrace! This is a MUST SEE spot every year. And, every year I swear it gets bigger and better. What’s even more incredible? Sometimes there is a donation box out front, which I love! Let’s get supporting various causes.

Wisteria at Abingdon Road

Abingdon Road Wisteria

I just love how this tree grows all along the fence. In some spots, it even grows through poles on the fence!

Wisteria at Stanford Road

Stanford Road London

Not long now until this gorgeous spot reaches the top of the house!

Wisteria at Canning Place

Another absolute show stopper. This house is perfectly wrapped in wisteria and the little garden out front is incredible. This spot can get busy, so get there early!

Wisteria at Launceston Place

Launceston Place wisteria

Can you spot how this wisteria is wrapping around the poles?

Wisteria at Kynance Mews

Kynance Mews in the Spring

Kynance Mews is a personal fave of mine all year round. In Autumn it fills with yellow, green and orange leaves. In the Spring, the wisteria takes over! Please make sure you respect the residents’ privacy at this spot.

Wisteria at Sumner Place

I love how full this wisteria is and how it stands out against the beautiful white building!

Wisteria at Elm Place

Can you spot the heart? It’s the first thing I noticed!

Wisteria at Selwood Place

Selwood Place near historic building

I mean…that architecture is unreal! Plus, this street is so quiet and tucked away.

Wisteria at Burnsall Street

Burnsall Street London

This spot bloomed a bit earlier than the rest this year. That’s because it’s in such a beautiful sunny spot.

Wisteria at Astell Street

Astell Street end of the wisteria

Simple and understated.

Wisteria at Radnor Walk

Radnor Walk house in London

I can’t wait to admire how this tree grows over the years and see how it spreads across the house.

Wisteria at Reburn Street

Redburn Street

Hello, more wisteria of dreams! The way it cascades down the house and around the corner and wraps through the fence… I didn’t want to leave this location!

Wisteria at St Leonard’s Terrace

Wisteria on Dracula's house

There are quite a few houses that are wrapped in beautiful purple blooms here. My fave has to be this white house though. Why? Because it has serious Dracula vibes and the blue plaque tells you why!

Wisteria at Cheyne Place

Cheyne Place, London

I would love to know how many years this has been growing… Wouldn’t you?

Wisteria at Swan Walk

Swan Walk purple wisteria

A gorgeous spot for photos! Plus, the smell of the beautiful flowers was incredible.

Wisteria at Cheyne Walk

Cheyne Walk, London

What a secret garden feel! So bright and cheerful. This spot has wisteria cascading over the house and the beautiful blooms in the garden below. Plus, you might be able to spot a little something hanging from the tree.

Wisteria at Chelsea Park Gardens

Chelsea Park Gardens, London

Chelsea Park Gardens is a lovely little quiet area. This house does not disappoint when it comes to breathtaking wisteria. Definitely visit it.

Wisteria at Park Walk

Strong and established. This wisteria had me in complete awe!

Beautiful Wisteria in London

All of these photos were taken in April and some trees were in perfect bloom. Others I was a bit late in capturing! London is so gorgeous this time of year and looking out for #wisteriahysteria is a must once the cherry blossoms go.

Enjoy your wisteria hunt and please share some of your fave spots with me!

    This is so lovely! I love wisteria, and although we have them in Germany, I remember them well from the UK! Would plant them if they weren’t toxic to out furry friends. Wonderful, wonderful photos, thank you so much!

      Thank you so much Anja for your kind words! Germany has some beautiful flowers… I remember from my trip a few years ago. I am like you. I have two cats and if wisteria wasn’t so harmful to them I would have it growing all over my garden and house! For now, I will just have to admire it around London.

    I love wisteria and I wish I could grow it in my own backyard. London entrances have a classic beauty. Even the storefronts are like garden nirvana.

    • 15 May 2022 / 6:24 PM

      Yes! I completely agree with you on this. There’s a unique beauty that’s for sure. I too wish I could grow it in my garden… Maybe one day.

      Thank you for reading. Wisteria is really beautiful. The bloom doesn’t last long though before it turns quite leafy.

    It makes London even prettier than it usually looks. It’s easy to forget that London has cute streets like these when people think of the busy city there. Love this, hopefully I can get there one April to see it

    • 18 May 2022 / 8:38 AM

      Yes exactly! There is so much more to London than just the busy city. I hope you do get to visit one day.

    Wisteria looks so pretty and the images you took are beautiful. I’ve been to London only in the fall so never had a chance to see it before.

    • 18 May 2022 / 8:39 AM

      Thank you, that’s so kind! London in the fall is beautiful too. There’s something special about Spring though. And, it’s Chelsea in Bloom next week!

    Wisteria is so beautiful so I can imagine these walks are awesome! I would also think the smell is a refreshing break from the smells of city life. Spring is such an amazing time! Great post.
