London Zoo

The Shard

London Bridge, London

The classic skyline shot of London is sometimes seen as a bit cliché but there’s a reason it’s such an iconic and popular picture. The view of London at night, when all of the city lights are shining bright, is truly stunning and there are few places in the world that can compare. There are plenty of spots to perch and capture a shot of the city but the country’s tallest building is about as good as it gets. Take a trip to the top of the Shard and turn the ISO up on your camera as you try to take in as much of the beautiful light as possible.

Neil’s Yard

Neil’s Yard, London

If you’re looking for great Instagram photos, you’re sure to get plenty of new followers with the photos you’ll snap at this little hidden gem. Neil’s Yard is a quaint little corner of London that features brightly coloured windows and doors on a charmingly decayed brick background. The back street is packed full of brightly coloured plants, making it a perfect subject for your next Instagram post.

Tower Bridge

Southwark, London

It’s time to turn your shutter speed down and create some magical shots with light. Tower Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks in the city and it is also one of the busiest areas. Thousands of cars cross the bridge every day, which means that you have plenty of opportunities to capture some stunning light trails. Wait until the sun goes down and head over to Tower Bridge for some of the best photos you’ll ever take.
