If you want colourful, beautiful photos, Neal’s Yard is an ideal spot to head to. Make sure you get here early, though, it gets busy later in the day. Even better, it’s free to access this spot and it’s just a brief walk from Covent Garden tube station.
2.Vista From The Shard
If you’re prepared to shell out for a ticket, the panoramic vistas from the Shard are well worth photographing. Head to the top floor viewing platform and you’ll be able to capture stunning 360-degree views over the city. This is a great spot for photos by day or by night.
3.St Paul’s Cathedral
One of the most famous buildings in London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a fantastic place to take photos. Head up in the elevator right to the top where you can get some amazing views, or why not come at sunset and enjoy wonderful lighting opportunities.
This picturesque marketplace in the financial district of the city makes for a highly Instagrammable shot. It’s recommended to use a wide-angled lens to allow you to capture as much as you can of the beautiful interiors.
5.The Light Tunnel At King’s Cross
If you head to King’s Cross station and go to the underground walkway that connects it to St Pancras you’ll find this spectacular multi-coloured light tunnel. It’s the ideal place to take some unique images.
6.Heals Of London
You may never have heard of this furniture shop on Tottenham Court Road, but those who are in the know go to the rear of the store to shoot images of a pretty staircase that is known as one of London’s most beautiful indoor photo spots.
7.Portobello Road And Notting Hill
Notting Hill is home to some truly beautiful and colourful streets that make stunning pictures. Get off the tube at Notting Hill Gate and walk along Portobello Road. You’re sure to get some amazing shots of the multi-coloured houses along the way.
Especially stunning by night, Piccadilly Circus isn’t easy to shoot but if you use HDR you should get a good exposure, even with the bright screens and dark surroundings. Some photographers love to use reflections and puddles in their pictures after rainfall, while others increase their ISO for night photographs to get the best result.
9.The Houses Of Parliament
Also known as the Palace of Westminster, this building is among London’s most popular and Instagrammable structures. To get the most attractive shots, head directly opposite, and shoot your images in a little archway. The best time to take photos here is at sunset since often, the sun will set behind the building.
If you’re looking for something a little more unusual for your Instagram page head to Embankment Station’s tunnels. They’re surprisingly picturesque with their tiled pattern, so use a fisheye or wide-angle lens to achieve cool effects. Or why not use a model in your photo for a more human element.
