Most Instagrammable places in London - INstagram guide to London

Hey guys, it’s the second post of my series of the Instagram guides to the cities around the world. This time I will show you the most instagrammable places in London, the city where I actually live. London is full of incredible photogenic places and I would probably need to create parts 2 and 3 of this Instagram guide to London, so you know the best photo spots in London! I will also tell you about the best locations for a photoshoot in London! And finally, you will find out about some unusual London photo spots.

And as always, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram – @lizatripsget – to see the most photogenic and instagrammable places from all around the world!

Interested in other Instagrammable places? I’ve got you covered! Here are my posts about the most Instagrammable places all around Europe and the world (to be continued):

My camera gear

If you’re interested, what camera do I use to take photos, I have two: Sony A7 III with Samyang 35 mm prime lens (super flat and tiny) and Sony A6000.

 

Let’s get started with the most instagrammable spots in London (and generally speaking, the best photo spots in London):

1. Peggy Porshen

Alright, this one is probably the most Instagrammable cafe in the entire London. It got popular just around a year ago and since then you need to stand in a massive queue in order to get inside this gorgeous cafe. While everybody says that the cakes aren’t any good, their presentation is really impressive. Alternatively, you can take a photo of the facade, that gets decorated for every season of the year and for big celebrations (such as Halloween). There are many Instagrammable cafes and restaurants in London, but this one is definitely the most photogenic one!

Came to visit this insta-famous place and wasn’t surprised by the 1-hour long queue! 😨What is the most instagrammable restaurant in London in your opinion? пришла в это инста-знаменитое место, и не удивилась очереди на час! Эх, Лондон! А какое место вам кажется самым инстаграмным? . . . . . #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #londonbloggers #londontown #toplondonphoto #mydarlinglondon #thisislondon #unlimitedlondon #londonenthusiast #culturetrip_ldn #thelondonlifeinc #london_only #londoncitylife #visitlondon #london4all #thisislondon #wonderlustlondon #mysecretlondon #londoncityworld #foundlondon #itssolondon #chilloutlondon #londondisclosure #peggyporshen #londonblogger #лондон

2. Milk train

If you’re looking for a unique colourful ice cream with a candy floss, head to Milk train! Don’t forget to bring some tissues as the ice cream melts really fast. Milk train isn’t a photo spot in London per se, but it’s a great accessory (or prop) for a cool photoshoot in London!

3. Shoreditch

Another fab instagrammable spot in London for you, Insta-lovers, is Shoreditch. Shoreditch is a hipster district full of graffiti, where you can take some really nice shots. Shoreditch would be my number one recommendation if you’re looking for cool and quirky London photo spots.

4. The Shard (aqua Shard)

In order to take a nice photo of London, head to Shard (pop up in the bar without the reservation) or reserve a table for a lunch/dinner or even the Afternoon tea! The view from the Shard is just incredible and it makes it one of the best Instagram photo spots in London!

5. Sky Garden

Sky Garden is an incredible garden / bar / restaurant located on the last floors of a skyscrapper. If you want to have a drink, you need to make a reservation. Sky Garden is definitely one of the most Instagrammable places in London! Also, it’s quite easy to have a photoshoot in Sky Garden, London, so put on your best dress (or jeans, or whatever) and come to one of the best photo spots in London!

6. Aida Shoreditch

For really instagrammable colourful matchas.

7. Farm girl

Farm girl is definitely one of the most Instagrammable breakfast spots in London. Check it out for colourful coffee, pink tables (located outside, on the terrace) and photogenic colourful croissants. Are you interested to know what are the best brunch places in London? Maybe I can recommend some – read this post about the best brunch spots in London!

8. Petersham nurseries

No words needed – look at this fabulous garden cafe in Richmond. It’s an absolutely perfect location for a photoshoot in London.

9. Covent Garden

Covent Garden is one of the prettiest spots in London all-year-long. In front of Covent Garden, there is a swing, decorated with flowers. However, from the inside, the Covent Garden is also really pretty.  It might not be one of the best locations for a photoshoot in London and not the best photo spot either, but just because it’s very crowded!

10. Eggbreak, Notting Hill

Eggbreak has been one of the first brunch places I visited in London and I really loved it. It’s photogenic, tasty and not overly expensive.

Good morning ☀️ On Monday we were looking for a perfect place to have brunch in London and we found @eggbreak_ldn through @foursquare (that's my favorite way to discover new places btw). Eggbreak had the rating of second best poached eggs in London and I must confirm that breakfast is amazing there! Who else loves avocado on toast as much as I do? 🥑 Which other breakfast places would you recommend? . . . . . #breakfasttime #breakfastvibes #poachedeggs #eggbreak #avocadotoast #mexicanbreakfast #flatlay #flatlayoftheday #onmytable #onthetableproject #londonfoodie #londonbrunch #londonbreakfast #eeeeeats #onmytable #tastemade #forkyeah #dailycortado #yahoofood #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #instafeast #pursuepretty #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #f52grams #feedfeed #londonvibes

13. Notting Hill

This neighbourhood is a paradise for bloggers: colourful houses with colourful doors are attracting bloggers and professional photographers on sunny days in London. If you’re coming to London for the first time, you should definitely visit Notting Hill in case you want some really great Instagrammable photos. Notthing Hill is the first spot taht comes to my mind when I think about the best places for a photoshoot in London!

14. Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is one of the best photo spots in London with its colourful houses and beautiful doors. Moreover, if you climb the actual Primrose Hill in Regent’s Park, you’ll the entire panorama of the entire city!

15. Belgravia

Belgravia is one of the most expensive and photogenic districts in London. It’s just nice to walk around there and take photos like this. It’s very posh, instagrammable and it’s one of my favourite London photo spots!

16. Leadenhall Market

The Harry Potter market is here – meet the Leadenhall Market. Advice: go there on the weekend for nice photos, as it’s very busy during the week!

17. Hampstead

Hampstead is one of the lesser famous districts for tourists, but it’s amazing and is totally worth visiting. Cute cafes, awesome houses and beautiful flower shops – all this is Hampstead. It’s also a great location for a photoshoot in London.

I love Peggie’s especially when they change the flower display. Dominique Ansel Bakery now has flower walls which are rather Instagrammable. However, the service is lacking, but the food is excellent. It’s worth an add to this list.
