The Best London Photography Locations

With almost 42 million tourists visiting London each year, it is the second most visited destination in Europe after Paris. People want to explore the city´s nightlife, art scene, theatres, sightseeing and get a small taste of what it is like to be a Londoner.

Tower Bridge

Yes, it is a cliche. Yes, you will definitely visit. But oh!!! It is so worth it. The views and the area around are simply breathtaking and one of the best areas in London. Tall and modern buildings along with the endless Thames River, make it a perfect location with multiple photography spots.

The Shard

Within a walking distance of 12 minutes from the Tower Bridge, you can visit the glorious Shard. This skyscraper stands tall at 309.7 meters and is the 5th tallest building in Europe. An ideal site for those who want to get panoramic views of London. The sight is especially impressing during the night.

Houses of Parliament & Big Ben

Probably the most famous area in London for tourists. On a daily basis, thousands of tourists visit Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to get the perfect picture of the iconic buildings. Sadly, Big Ben will not be visible until 2021, as it is under construction. During the night the view of Canary Wharf still is astonishing.

Piccadilly Circus

A beautiful and major traffic section in the heart of London, with a huge video billboard that can be seen from any side. It might be one of the most visited places as well, but if you just be patient you can take some amazing shots.

Leadenhall Market

The stunning architecture of the Leadenhall Market has attracted a lot of film directors, as it makes for an ideal filming location for any type of movie. In fact, the famous Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter movies was located there. All stores close around have opening times from 09:00 until 20:00 from Monday to Friday. Those interested can visit the market when everything is closed for some pretty impressive photographs.

Natural History Museum

Another architectural masterpiece which on the outside is very pretty and spacious, but it is the inside that catches the eye. The Romanesque architecture is considered a work of art on its own. Although it is always crowded, you can still take advantage of the people and take amazing pictures. The best feature of the museum is the upstairs floor that has no exhibitions and it is truly remarkable.

Millennium Bridge

The most photographed bridge in London after Tower Bridge. The views from all sides are astonishing. Photographing St. Paul´s Cathedral while on the bridge can be a great addition to your portfolio. Make the time to also visit at night.
