The Most Instagrammable Places in London
If you are anything like me then you may probably have a serious love for Instagram. For as long as I can remember, I have loved having an aesthetically pleasing Instagram; while some may find that sad, I prefer it. I took a trip to London with Jessica (Secret Diary of Jess) you can check out her blog here and Hannah; where we discovered some places in London that you may love as much as we did.
In this post, I have tried to incorporate a mixture of places you may have never heard of as well as some Instagram popular key locations.
Peggy Porschen Cakes
Probably the most beautiful cake shop I have ever laid my eyes on; situated between Sloane Square and Victoria Station, this pretty in pink bakery is seen all over Instagram and rightfully so. Best thing is, if you feel awkward taking photos in public like I do, as people are always taking pictures outside of this beautiful bakery you will not feel uncomfortable in the slightest.
Grand Union Canal
Head straight out of the Grand Union Canal exit at Paddington Station, and you will find some beautiful restaurants but most importantly lovely cafè boats. Despite construction work that is going on, with the right angles it can really add a pop of colour to your feed.
In addition to the canal boat cafès, they have this beautiful leaf wall display that I thought would look perfect for any feed whether minimalistic or bright and colourful. We managed to grab a few shots here, however, the lighting due to being cloudy did make a few of them exceedingly bright
The Theatre Cafè
Until Jessica told me about this place I had never heard of it before but as a lover of musicals and the feel-good vibes their soundtracks give; I could not wait to try this place out. As you walk in you are greeted by musical soundtracks, friendly staff and a gorgeous atmosphere. Not to mention their drinks are musical related – I had Phantom of The Mocha whereas Jessica had Smoothie Criminal and Hannah had Defying GraviTEA. If you are a musical enthusiast and looking for places that will capture that, then here is your go to.
Covent Garden has so many beautiful spots for pictures however it ended up being packed therefore a lot of the key photo locations i.e. the florally decorated swings. However, if you think outside the box you can get some lovely photos by the flower pots.
Probably other than Peggy Porschen, Notting Hill was one of my favourite locations to shoot in. While you have the well known coloured houses and Portobello Road Market; if you explore properly, you will find cute side roads with a more rustic charm. The residents were more than friendly when they saw us capturing photos – unsurprisingly they get quite a few people taking shots down there.
I hope you enjoyed this post and please do let me where your favourite place to shoot is, in the comments below!
