Just thought it could be useful to have them all in one map so you can organise your days to visit as many as possible when you are in the area.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #1: Tower Bridge

Let’s start with the obvious. Tower Bridge is such an iconic landmark of London and on top of that, it has many photo-worthy angles.

Walk the bridge or walk around the north and south sides for excellent photo ops, including the fountain Girl with a Dolphin.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #2: St. Paul’s Cathedral

Another stunning landmark with multiple photogenic angles. The most common photo on Instagram is taken from New Change Street, in front of the One New Change shopping mall.

However, there are lots of other interesting viewpoints. Try going to the rooftop in the same shopping mall (Madison restaurant is there but you don’t need to go inside the restaurant to access the rooftop).

You will find a lot of beautiful spots by walking around the cathedral.

And how about going inside? Check out their photography policies in the Cathedral’s website.

Currently, the cathedral is not open for sightseeing and photography due to Covid-19 restrictions, but once these are lifted, you can book your online ticket for £17. You can also book an open ticket now valid for 2 years.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #3: Adams Plaza Bridge

This is not as famous as the previous two locations on Instagram. The art installation was done recently and it is mostly visited by locals. Not necessarily by tourists.

However, this is a guide for the most instagrammable places in London, so if your priority is to find photography spots in London, you will love this one.

The French artist Camille Walala transformed this 80 meters bridge in a geometric insta-worthy art installation.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #4: Leadenhall Market

A very photogenic market and also famous among Harry Potter fans.

Leadenhall Market is closed on the weekends. It is best to avoid lunchtime and after-office hours if you don’t want to have other people in your shots.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #5: St. Dunstan in the East Church Garden

This is the cutest hidden garden in the middle of the city. It is not easy to spot it from the outside so be sure to check the location in the map.

The church is closed, as it was left in ruins after World War II, and then rebuilt as a public garden.

The place keeps a gothic and medieval look, which attracts instagrammers for interesting photoshoots.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #6: Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus is famous for its photos with neon signs and huge video displays. Gives you a little bit of Times Square vibes.

Also, there is always many people and red buses passing by so it is the perfect spot for a photo of the busy London life.

Find the exact location here:

Most Instagrammable Place in London #7: Regent Street

Since you are already in Piccadilly Circus, how about going next to Regent Street?

The curved street with the typical londoner architecture looks great in photos.

The street is pretty much monochrome, so adding a colorful outfit to the mix creates the perfect contrast.

Also, if it happens to be December – January, Regent Street is famous for its Christmas lights.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #8: Syon Park

I absolutely love this photography spot in London.

It is not super famous in Instagram, and most tourists will skip this park during their visit.

However, most local photographers and Instagrammers will come to Syon Park to add something different to their feed.

It can take a bit more than 1 hour to get here from the city centre, but the ‘trip’ is well worth it, especially to check out the conservatory.

Find the exact location here:

Most Instagrammable Place in London #9: Sky Garden

The Sky Garden is London’s highest public garden and is located in the Walkie Talkie building.

The views of the city’s skyline and the many plants in it, make it one of the most instagrammable places in London.

The access is free but you need to book your ticket in advance. Book your ticket on their official website.

I suggest you book it well in advance, especially if you plan to go on a weekend. Time slots tend to fill quickly.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #10: Emirates Cable Car

Besides being a great photography spot in London, the Emirates cable car is a fun, affordable activity.

The ride goes from above the Thames River for about 10 minutes. It can be a one-way or a return trip.

The two stations for departing and arrival are Emirates Greenwich Peninsula and Emirates Royal Docks. The entry is as simple as when using the underground, except that you will be flying with an amazing view to The O2 and Canary Wharf.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #11: Notting Hill

Notting Hill is basically the epitome of Instagram-worthy streets.

Its colourful houses make the perfect background for Instagram and Pinterest photos. And believe me, the house owners are aware of it.

You will see a lot of houses have blocked the entrance to their front porch to avoid people blocking the entrance all day for their photos.

For this reason, I highly suggest you look for spots where noone is bothered. It is really not difficult considering the amount of beautiful streets.

The most instagrammable streets in Notting Hill are Lancaster Road, Portobello Road, and Denbigh Terrace, but you can walk through streests nearby to find many hidden gems.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #12: Neal’s Yard

A colourful little corner, but well-known as an instagrammy spot.

Neal’s Yard is only accessible via two small cobbled alleys. It is surrounded by bright coloured buildings and restaurants.

It is better to go early to avoid crowds, but you will possibly still share the courtyard with other people trying to take photos in the morning.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #13: Out of Order sculpture

The iconic red telephone booths cannot be missing in your London feed. And if you have a line of them tumbling down even better!

This sculpture is the vibrant artwork created by David Mach. It is located in the Kingston downtown shopping area, so you can walk around after snapping some photos.

You can even find the Out of Order sculpture in many London postcards, as it has been a Kingston landmark since 1989.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #14: King’s Cross Light Tunnel

Public transportation in London is everything but boring.

King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations have lots of interesting spots, but one of my favourite has to be the light tunnel.

The King’s Cross tunnel is a 90-metre long tunnel made of led lights. It has been used for different events, including as a catwalk during London Fashion Week.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #15: Millenium Bridge

One of the most photographed places in London, and for good reason.

Officially known as the London Millenium Footbridge, the Millenium bridge is perfectly aligned with the south facade of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Many photographers go to this spot to get a picture of the cathedral’s dome perfectly framed by the bridge supports. However, there are many beautiful angles to find.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #16: God’s Own Junkyard

This hidden gem will bring edgy, colourful, and retro pics to your feed.

It is important to be aware that DSLRs, or other professional cameras are not allowed in here. You can only use your celphone for photos.

God’s Own Junkyard is a gallery of neon artpieces. It opens every weekend and has a cafe/bar inside.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #17: Old Royal Naval College

Besides being a beautiful cultural spot, with lots of history behind, the photography opportunities here are amazing.

The surroundings are insta-worthy enough, but the gallery inside the Royal Naval College, also known as ‘Britain’s Sistine Chapel’, is definitely worth a visit.

You can buy a ticket on their official website and check for events that are also instagrammable, like the Gaia exhibition.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #18: Woolwich Town Hall

This is the historic building where the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s government is located.

Many people choose it as their wedding venue because of the beautiful photo ops.

Head inside the Wellington Street entrance and go to a beautiful ornate hall, the Victoria Hall.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #19: Royal Courts of Justice

The building’s facade looks stunning and very instagrammable.

Fortunately, the wide street in front of it gives you plenty of space to frame the whole height of the building.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #20: Natural History Museum

It is better to go during the weekdays, as the queue to enter to the Natural History Museum can get endless on the weekends.

There are some paid sections, but the free sections are the most photographed.

Also, right outside the museum there is a carousel and an ice skating rink, which make for pretty photos as well.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #21: Leake Street Tunnel

Mostly skipped by tourists but they don’t know what they are missing! This hidden spot is very representative of street art in London.

Go at any time and you will find artists doing amazing graffitis on top of older ones. The whole tunnel is covered in art and it is constantly changing.

If you go in the morning, there will be less people taking photos.

The entrance is completely free but you can also have a drink at one of the cafes or bars inside the tunnel.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #22: Westminster Cathedral

A Roman Catholic cathedral with architecture of the late 19th century.

It is very pretty on the inside, but the orange/red colour of the facade really pops in photographs.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #23: The World Turned Upside Down

I love this art installation and how random it looks in the middle of the street.

If you have a travel Instagram account, a photo here will go well with your travel aesthetics.

Most Instagrammable Place in London #24: BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Also known as the Neasden Temple, this complex is an Indian masterpiece located in West London.

Photos are not allowed inside so, unfortunately, you can’t take photos with your celphone, and they will keep any other cameras at the security gate until you end your visit.

However, you can take photos outside with your phone. The front view is stunning as well as the view from the side gardens.
