London is one of the most iconic places in the world. When you mention London Red Telephone boxes, Double Decker Buses, Pubs, afternoon tea and beautiful buildings all come to mind. Of course, iconic and older cities come with many places to capture the perfect instagrammable photo.
From the pretty flowery buildings, to the delicious treats and the famous black cabs. I have compiled the “Most Instagrammable places in London”
PeggyPorrschen is one of the most popular “Instagram” photo spots. I suggest you go early as the cafe fills up very quickly and of course, their food is super “instaworthy” as well!! The inside is just as beautiful outside so make sure you go in and support their business whilst you are taking your photos.
Tips for being a considerate traveller: If you are taking photos in front of someone’s house, please stay off their property, stay on public property such as the footpaths, and be mindful that these are people’s homes.
Every where you look in Notting Hill there is an Instagram moment. The colourful houses, the eclectic market stalls, the beautiful cafes and the Notting Hill Bookshop!
I think on this one, a picture speaks a thousand words! The beautiful decor, the stunning views, what more could you want? As I am sure you can imagine, this one books out very quickly so make sure you book to avoid being disappointed
When ever I think of London, I picture Tower Bridge (no it is not called London Bridge – although this is a very common mistake!). It is such a beautiful bridge and completely free to visit – it is very busy, with both traffic and pedestrians, so go early in the morning to get your best shots.
When you are taking your photos remember a lot of locals use this bridge as a means to get to work!!
Brigit’s Bakery Bus Tour
Bridget’s Bakery Bus Tour is the most instagrammable bus I have ever been on. The whole experience is a perfect Instagram moment, from the cute bus to the delicious treats, you will continuously have your camera out! For those perfect shots out of the bus, request a seat at the front of the bus.
Covent Garden is a beautiful part of London. Probably one of my favourite, whenever I am in London I go back at least three times.
Not only are decorations beautiful (especially at Christmas!!) but the market is gorgeous, the surrounding area is stunning. It is a must if you are in search of the Most Instagrammable places in London.
Neal’s Yard is still a relatively hidden gem amongst London’s hustle and bustle. Located just off Covent Garden there are plenty of cafes, shops and of course photo opportunities to amuse yourself for a few hours.
If you think Neal’s Yard Remedies began here, you would be correct, way back in 1981!
Businesses here benefit from tourists and locals supporting them. So if you are here taking some photos go and do some shopping or eating in the cafes.
The Churchill Arms has to be the prettiest pub in London, if not in the UK. In my opinion is it is the prettiest pub I have ever seen and you should definitely go back at Christmas to see how they transform the decor.
If rumours are true they spend up to £25,000 a year on floral displays!!! I feel bad on the occasion I spend $15 on a bunch of flowers, but hey, thanks for making such a pretty pub!!
Their food is actually pretty amazing too, so make sure you grab a bite or a pint!
Inside and out this is a stunning builidng. It stands tall above the streets of London and makes for a beautiful photo. If you want the “London” style photo, walk away from the cathedral and you will find some read telephone boxes that will add to your photo
Platform 9 and 3/4
If you are a complete Harry Potter nerd like me, this photo does not need an explanation!!
There are always lines here and they take the trolley away at night time, so make sure you go early! There are staff there taking professional photos but you do not have to buy the photo and you are free to take your own pictures.
The best time to visit this covered market is when the shops and restaurants are closed. If you visit after about 6pm the crowds are gone and you can snap a photo of the empty market
Lewisham Micro Library
This tiny library acts as a book exchange which is perfect for us travellers. It also acts as a beautiful Instagram spot.
The box which stands near the corner of Loampit Hill and Tyrwhitt Road, which is just down from St John’s Station.
If you are travelling around Europe, can an eye out for these micro book exchanges!
One final reminder, there are other people who would also like to take some photos. So please, take your photo and then move away and allow other people some time to take their photos.
