Best Instagrammable Spots in London

November 27, 2017

When I’m not travelling, I certainly am thinking about it, and I’m sure all you avid travellers can relate. London was such a wonderful experience for me. I got to revisit some of the sights I had seen on my first trip about a decade ago. I honestly cannot believe it took me so long to return. On my latest trip back, I didn’t get to stop at all the beautiful spot I had seen or heard about, but I always think of it as a great excuse to return! Today, I wanted to share some of the prettiest spots to visit, get a great view and if you desire, capture your best instagrammable photo in London.

I thought I’d make a few of these easy for you by breaking it down into a few categories that I find really helpful.

This is such a fantastic street. It’s located just off of one of the most popular shopping areas in London: Oxford Circus. Here, you’ll find cute shops, plenty of restaurants and cafes tucked away in little alleys and along cobblestone streets. It’s super charming.

The front of this shop is so darling, if the cute little cakes and tea options doesn’t lure you in, the front doorway certainly will. I am a strong believer in dining or shopping where I take a photo of a store-front, if it makes sense, or if I can. I feel like it’s just a great way to give back to the shop-owner who paid to create such a welcoming space! I saw this spot 2 years ago online and knew that I’d want to come for a visit. I met up with Sophie of @silkandstrands and we popped in for dessert. If you didn’t know already, I have a love for food and of course, I got 2 desserts and a proper cup of tea.

Buckingham Palace
This is a no brainer, but what people try to continuously do is attempt to photograph it from the front gates. At all hours of the day, this place will be so packed with people. Get a clear shot of it up the gardens, where you’ll snap the entire palace with flowers I didn’t make the effort to swap lenses, so this is a close up, but at you’ll get an unobstructed view with the fountain and flowers strategically hiding hundreds of people in front.

Red Telephone Boots
I shot a red telephone booth back in Santa Barbara, California so it’s not really as rare as you think. You’ll find one at Universal Orlando as well, but when in London, your trip really probably isn’t complete unless you get one officially from the UK itself! If you really want a unique red photobooth shot, you should see the Telephone Booth Dominos! If you just want 1 phone booth in your shot, you’ll find a few all around the city. I got a photo of one by Big Ben, and speaking of…

Big Ben
When you get to the Big Ben, you’ll also have an outstanding view of The London Eye. What a pretty spot. It’s incredibly crowded, so if you want a clear shot, walk partway down the bridge for one because there are so many people at the end of the bridge trying to get the exact same shot.

Tower Bridge
I happen to have walked across the Tower Bridge and it was such a pretty spot, I wish I had stepped back for a better photo, but it’s actually just as lovely on it. I posted this photo on IG here.

The Ivy
This cute restaurant funny enough is connected to the Covent Garden, and it’s really chic. If you’re like me and like to to find good spots but are on a budget, they have a set menu available. See website for hours.

The Covent Garden
I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t stop into the Covent Garden, but I did take photos outside of it as I was passing by to a show during London Fashion Week, which I wrote about here. The interior is so pretty, grab your favourite food and snap a photo on the upper level. You’ll find Laduree, a cute bench with floral decor, beautiful little shops and street performances.

Sketch London
I’m saving this one for either a group of girlfriends or with my hubby who happens to love sweets. Such a cute spot. I saw photos of this a couple of years back and then months later, it started flooding Instagram.

Royal Exchange Grind
I found cute colorful cold brew with latte art back in New York early in the year and tried it out for the hype (pink one and green one), but if you love a pretty latte shot, this is a spot where you’ll find a pink or green one one.

Farm Girl Cafe
I personally have never been and I have heard too many mixed reviews about this spot, so be fair warned. It’s a bloggers spot and the food is on the pricier side but the in photos, the food looks absolutely incredible.

Palm’s Vault
Hanging plants, pink seats, marble tables and exposed bricks for walls make for a pretty shot here. Photo credit to Topshop’s Blog. You’ll find colored drinks with your food here.

Bob Bob Ricard
If you love a luxurious, rich interior to dine at, as I do when you want a romantic dinner, business meeting or splurge, Bob Bob Ricard is a must.

Neal’s Yard
If you love colourful spots, Neal’s Yard is like a children’s coloring book. This is also located near Covent Garden.

Primrose Hill
If you’re far from the Bahamas and want to see colorful pastel homes, Primrose Hill has a street of them. Definitely a place to get a gorgeous spot, especially if you love pastel colours.

Churchill Arms
The exterior of Churchill Arms is literally a bright burst of colorful flowers, but so is the interior, so stop in for a drink at this English pub.

These were shot in Nottinghill area.

The Shard
If you want sweeping views of London (hopefully on a clear day), you can go up and dine at one of the restaurants to catch the skyline. this beautiful spot is amazing for groups and couples to enjoy, but I love a great view when I work, so I would’ve definitely made reservations for 1, answered some emails, maybe write, and enjoy the entire experience.

Sky Garden
Speaking of views, stop by the highest garden in London. There’s plenty of seating!


Green brocade boots are ZARA. Silver boots are EGO. Both are sold out, but I’ve links some other options below.

    I live in London and havent visited some of these! I do love seeing tourists post by the red telephone booths as they’re just so common for us to see that we hardly recognise them as special. I really want to take photos in Neals Yard as it’s just so vibrant! Thanks for sharing.
