Five of the most Instagrammable places in London

We might be biased, but London is arguably one of the most ‘Gram-worthy locations in the world.

Bursting with vibrant street murals, floral displays, colourful buildings and picturesque skylines, there seems to be a shot for your Instagram grid everywhere you turn. If you’re heading for a roam around the city, then here are five of our favourite Instagrammable places in London. And the best bit? With these locations, there’s no need to be a professional photographer to nail that perfect pic.

Wembley Park Art Trail

A far cry from the Wembley we once knew, the borough of Wembley Park is fast becoming a busy hub bursting with charisma, vibrancy and diversity. And the epitome of what Wembley has to offer is its art trail. Consider this a free, public art gallery, waiting for you to pose in front of. From rainbow-inspired stairs, digital media displays and upcycled murals, take a ponder around Wembley Park Art Trail and you won’t be disappointed. 

Neal’s Yard

Nestled behind the busy lanes of Covent Garden, you’ll find Neal’s Yard. You’d be forgiven if you thought Neal’s Yard was designed for the likes of Instagram, what with it being a courtyard of colour. It really is one of London’s prettiest streets, bought to life through independent and quirky retailers. 

Tower Bridge

Not only is Tower Bridge pretty in its own right, but it boasts picture-perfect views of both the north and south of the Thames river. Snap a selfie on Tower Bridge in front of the city’s stunning skyline, capturing London Eye and Westminster - and for the best result, head there for a sunset shot. 

Notting Hill

Lined with deliciously pretty colourful homes, it’s easy to see why thousands head to Notting Hill to get the perfect Instagram photo. For the ultimate shot, head to either Portobello Road if you’re looking for pastel tones, or Lancaster Road for contrasting pops of eccentric, vibrant hues.

Sky Garden

As the name suggests, Sky Garden offers Highline 360 exquisite views of the entire city. London’s highest public garden (you have to book tickets, they’re free and get released every Monday), Sky Garden is home to magnificent botanical, jungle-esque displays. Whether you’re after a sunset snap of the skyline, or a dreamy shot staged in front of a tropical backdrop, Sky Garden has it all. 

Snap-worthy famous places

Of course, if you’re looking to grab a selfie in front of those all-to-famous landmarks, London has plenty to offer. Why not stroll over to South Bank and pose in front of the London Eye, before exploring the riverside trail, bursting with culture and history? Or head over to the Houses of Parliament, for that perfect shot in front of Big Ben himself.

You can’t go wrong with Buckingham Palace, thanks to its majestic architecture and of course the Queen’s Guards. Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square also make the list - both bursting with world-class fashion and beauty stores, as well as an array of restaurants.

It’s also worth noting that if you’re thinking about a trip to the theatre, both Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square have plenty of choices for a pre-show cocktail.
