The Most Instagrammable Places in London

Always wanting up to your ‘gram game, but don’t quite know where to start? Luckily for you, there’s plenty of places in London that are just waiting to be snapped. We’re talking floral heaven in Petersham Nurseries and Covent Garden, cakes that need photographing before tucking into at Peggy Porschen, cute streets such as Kynance Mews and Columbia Road Flower Market and the trusty tourist spots that are snapped by thousands (looking at you Tower Bridge). And even in drizzly weather, those beautiful buildings full of history will always be incredibly photogenic. Basically, London is THE place to snap, share and then watch as the likes roll in.

Take some snaps, and then some more. Just incase.

God’s Own Junkyard

The Vegas of Walthamstow. Prepare for neon lights, vintage signs and plenty of wonderful treasure. Grab your snap with a beer in hand.

Leadenhall Market

Make the most of the elegant Victorian roof and the beautiful facades of stalls, restaurants and shops for more than one ‘gram.

Tower Bridge

Need we even say anything for our most famous (and beautiful) bridge.

British summer 🇬🇧🍾🌸

Instantly recognisable for it’s floral installations (and delicious Thai food). Come back every season, for a refreshed and timely snap with this bedecked Kensington institution.

Peggy Porschen

The only time it’s perfectly acceptable to resist indulging in the cake you’ve just ordered. Gotta get the perfect snap first. And then some more. Just in case. Now at two magical locations – the original in Belgravia and the newer parlour in Chelsea.

There is so much that can be said about @sketchlondon current exhibition… BUT I won’t say too much because the best is going and visiting, experiencing it for yourselves 😘💕 it’s called Women Empowered, and displays gorgeous pieces created by female artists. My personal favourite is the 🖤black🖤 beating heart, covered in stones (you can see it in stories) I absolutely love the concept or at least the way I interpreted the artwork – in our core, sometimes, darkness and beauty go hand in hand… too deep for a Friday but anyway 😘🖤 happy Friday my dears . . . #theprettycities #prettylittletrips #toplondonphoto #passionpassport #theartofslowliving #momentsofmine #pursuepretty #london #beautifuldestinations #thisislondon #mytinyatlas #traveldeeper #prettycitylondon #prettylittlelondon #photosofbritain #living_europe #visitbritain #timeoutlondon #culturetrip_ldn #lovegreatbritain #fromwhereistand #doortraits #guardiantravelsnaps #onthetable #mysecretlondon #goingoutlondon #goopgo

Amazing Afternoon Tea, incredible interiors and THOSE toilets… So many perfect options. So much phone storage used. And there’s still the rest of Mayfair nearby.

Neal’s Yard

From a colourful place to another 🇬🇧 This is Neal's Yard in Covent Garden. It's not the typical perspective, but it looks beautiful also from here, doesn't it? • • @London @visitlondon @prettylittlelondon @timeoutlondon @toplondonphoto @its_so_london • #visitlondon #thisislondon #londonsbest #thelondonlifeinc #living_europe #uk_shooters #londondisclosure #londoners #london_enthusiast #travellingthroughtheworld #londonforyou #londonpop #london_only #london4all #londoncalling #prettycitylondon #theprettycities #visitengland #topeuropephoto #living_europe #prettylittlelondon #london_city_photo #living_europe #mysecretlondon #explorelondon  #londonbylondoner #londonlove #london4all #toplondonphoto #timeoutlondon

A secret courtyard full of colour and life. Instagram loves Neal’s Yard. Don’t leave without some cheese either. As if Covent Garden wasn’t yummy enough.

Petersham Nurseries

Flowers, plants and cacti, everywhere. And a restaurant and terrace for that pretty little ‘gram. Another gorgeous one in Covent Garden!

Daunt Books

For travellers who like reading.

Think long oak galleries and graceful skylights. Everyone looks a book store, so let the likes roll in from the original in Marylebone.


When there’s a swinging chair in a courtyard garden, you head to the swinging chair in the courtyard garden. And get a photo in every angle possible. It’s in Fitzrovia, after all!


The perfect excuse to eat some biscuits, because Instagram loves the exterior of Biscuiteers. So, gotta give the public what they want. Don’t miss the original icing cafe in Notting Hill.

Conservatory Archives

An indoor garden in Hackney, perfect to browse and perfect to take a hundred snaps. And not be judged. IRL and on the ‘gram.

Columbia Road

Looking like New York, standing in Hackney in London. And head back on Sundays, because, flower market!

Elan Cafe

We’re ready for the weekend 🌸

Pastries can wait, even in Mayfair. There’s an opportunity for a new profile picture in front of their famous flower wall.

Charlotte Street Hotel

First you order a drink, then you set yourself up outside and attempt a full on photoshoot. The facade colours will fit for any theme on the ‘gram. All hail Fitzrovia!

Milk Train

It might not be practical to eat, and you may end up with ice-cream down your top, but it’s worth it for the great snap you’ll get #handsinframe in Covent Garden.

Covent Garden

When you can’t decide if you want to be active on social or hide away from it all for the rest of time. Actually let’s be honest here, I spent the best part of last week either OUT OUT (because y’know, one drink turns into three and before you know it, you’ve done it every day of the week) or hungover, wanting pasta for breakfast (BAFTA got me real good) and just basically living life. Being in the now, and forgetting that we can have a good time without ‘gramming it. And we can wear the same outfit three days running if we want to, (we all totally do it right?!) and only speak to the people who are sat opposite us at the table that night, with us. Like, I think sometimes social makes us forget that. To just be in the now. And yes maybe ironic considering my job, but excuse me whilst I go and drink one too many G&T’s and wear the same dress all weekend, cause I got stuff to do! 👊

So many picture perfect opportunities. Must not be in a hurry. This is the one and only Covent Garden, you know.

Somerset House

Forever a favourite spot for outfit posts, Christmas captures and just the perfect backdrop that you’ve been looking for.

Dalloway Terrace

It’s OK to book a brunch or lunch date here, purely so you can get a snap of the interior.

Sky Garden

Natural light is key and Sky Garden is basically the gift that keeps on giving. Prepare to story overload with that view.

Liberty London

Did you even go to Liberty London if you didn’t take a photo of the flower stand though? Yet another excuse to visit Soho.

Kew Gardens

Don’t forget to use #worldneedsmorespiralstaircases. Thank us later! Well worth the trip to Richmond.

Rumpus Room

One photogenic (and fun) rooftop playground with views and interiors perfect for the ‘gram.


Looking for THAT pink house? You know, the one that’s used for film and photoshoots.. Look no further than Princelet street in Spitalfields.

Warren Mews

Apparently there’s a cute little couple that live here, so it makes that picture all the more cuter.

Borough Market

Come for the food. Stay for the photos.

Wild at Heart

Flowers are the secret ingredient to getting all of the likes. Wild at Heart is just the place for helping with that.

And finally for beautiful streets and colourful houses, head to Marylebone, Notting Hill, Kensington, Primrose Hill and Portobello Road. Just don’t blame us when you get house envy (we get it too)!
