The Best Photography Spots in London

London is indeed a photography spot destination. Pasturing from beautiful and historical landmarks, colourful exteriors, instagrammable café, breathtaking views and more.

So in this post, you will discover the most excellent locations as well as some tips to help you capture the best photographs.
Even though the weather is not alluring, the city can still inspire any photographer.
All of the locations that I will mention are free to access, and you will find the best times for pictures and Google Maps link with each suggestion.

Here are some of my favourite best photography spots in London for getting the shot for the Instagram or photo collections:

Kyoto Garden

Holland Park is also the household of Kyoto Gardens, a Japanese-inspired garden with a rocky waterfall and hundreds of koi carp.
This is the prettiest place for me even though the site is not as big, you do have a lot of things to see. I can certainly find peace in this place. Complete with picturesque views and trickling lakes.

To get to Kyoto Garden get off at High Street Kensington Station and then it’s 14 minutes walk.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

This site is my second prettiest places in London for me.

Your visit to London is not complete if you can’t go to St.Paul’s!
Do you want to have the same photo angles like mine?

If you do, 1 New Change is the address you need.

To get to St.Paul’s Cathedral get off at St.Paul’s Station and then it’s only 3-4 minutes walk.

Neal’s Yard

This is a minimal area but buildings painted in colourful and vibrant colours giving a very funky look.

I can tell that this is a lovely spot for all the Instagrammers, bloggers and photographer especially for those that like lots of colours in their photos and also you will enjoy outing over good food and drinks.
You better head here early before it gets too busy.

To get to Neal’s Yard get off at Covent Garden Station and then it’s only 3 minutes walk.

Portobello Road

Is there anywhere in London more eye-catching than Portobello Road?

The bizarre candy-coloured houses, the antiques, vintage buildings. It’s a vintage lover’s dream!

This road is a street in the Notting Hill district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in west London. This is a great area to visit in London each season, especially on a sunny day.

As what they said, this Portabello Road is one of the London’s notable street markets, known for its second-hand vintage clothes and antiques.

To get to Portobello Road get off at Ladbroke Grove Station and then it’s only 5-6 minutes walk.

The Churchill Arms

Possibly, the Churchill Arms is one of the London’s beautiful pubs.

You can see why though!

The building is a wonder for the eyes with the flowers and greenery all over the building. This is definitely one of the best places to take a picture in London especially on a sunny day.

To get to The Churchill Arms get off at Notting Hill Gate Station and then it’s only 4 minutes walk.

Warren Mews

This is one of the charming mews streets in London.

I have no idea what is about Warren Mews that made it a famous Instagram spot in London maybe because of their moody, dark grey brick or the powder green bike parked outside or the odd, mysterious characters painted on the door.

Probably a combination of all of these things.

But whatever it is, it’s still definitely worth it to stop by if you are in the area.

This beautiful building is beside The Helix Clinic. So if you have difficulty to find it, just google the clinic instead.

To get to Warren Mews get off at Warren Street Station and then it’s only 5 minutes walk.
