Flemings Mayfair is here with a guide to the best photos spot in London. Whilst you are in London, we want to make sure that your Instagram account is filled with beautiful pictures that will make your friends wish they were here! This blog lists the five best attractions to photograph, along with tips on how to make sure your photo is perfect.
Buckingham Palace is a stunning and iconic landmark of London. Buckingham palace makes a beautiful picture, especially in the summer. We advise this photo to be taken nearby Canada gates; from this angle your shot will include Buckingham Palace, the Queen Victoria monument and the beautiful flower arrangements adding a burst of colour. This picture looks very effective when the Rise filter is added.
The London Eye
The London Eye is very impressive; it is one of the largest observation wheels in the world. It makes a great photo from so many angles. Our favourites are either from underneath the London Eye looking upwards, showing off the true detail of its infrastructure; or we also like the night time shot from across the River Thames, looking towards the London Eye attractively lit up in colourful lights. On our picture here we added the Valencia filter.
Big Ben and The Houses Parliament are especially impressive in personal view; with such attention to detail and exquisite design this building is one not to miss. We have two favourite ways to photograph Big Ben. One is from the other side of the River Thames, taking a photo of the entire Houses Parliament with the reflection upon the river; this is best taken at dusk. The other shot we like focuses on Big Ben itself whilst capturing the London Eye in the background, this can be taken from Bridge street opposite Big Ben.
St Paul’s Cathedral
St Paul’s Cathedral is a charming building with an outstanding domed roof. The cathedral is located at the top of Ludgate Hill, making it one of the highest points in the City. This means that photographing St Pauls Cathedral tends to be one of the easiest attractions to get a good shot. A great spot to stand when taking this photo is on London Bridge, also if you are going on an open top bus tour then good shots can also be made from the top deck.
London Sky Line
London’s Skyline is extraordinary. In the past 10 years the developments in London have been plentiful, with many more high-rise buildings being erected, adding even more details to the scene. When photographing London’s skyline, great photos can be taken on the tower bridge and near the Tower of London. The City particularly looks remarkable from this area. We added the Lo-fi filter and border to our photo.
