9 Blogger/Instagrammable Photo Spots In London - Street Names & Postcodes REVEALED

17 October 2019

When it comes to finding photo locations for my shoots, Instagram and Pinterest really help a girl out.   Inspiration-wise, they are great. But sometimes social media just doesn't give me enough detail - I need street addresses, coordinates, house numbers - you get it.

So, I've put together my favourite spots for taking pictures this Autumn/Winter - some are obvious blogger spots, others are hidden gems.

I know, it all shouldn't be #forthegram but when you're a blogger, you want pictures that are going to be pleasing to the eye.

Disclaimer: I apologies in advance for some of the shameless links to my Instagram displaying some of the locations (but whilst you're there, you may as well give it a follow, right?)

1. Elder Street, Spitalfieds.

One of those hidden gems in London that you wouldn't believe is modern day Central London. It's safe to say that this location inspired this post as I came across so many accounts that showed this beautiful location but none with the exact street name, which after several minutes of looking at Goggle Street Maps, encouraged me to write a blogspot detailing the Instagrammable spots London has to offer. Elder Street, E1 6BT is the new bloggers spot (mark my words). I also shot some great snaps just outside Spitalfields Market.

2. Bakeries around SW1W 

For changing floral exterior depending on the seasons, Dominque Ansel Bakery is the one! 17-21 Elizabeth St, Belgravia, London SW1W 9RP

Also worth checking out the one and only Peggy Porschen Cakes on 116 Ebury St, SW1W 9QQ.

3. Greenwich

The royal borough of Greenwich is full of them. Come out at Cutty Sark DLR station where you'll find The Royal Naval College & Greenwich University. There are also some great leaves at Greenwich Park around this time of year (I can't believe I just wrote 'some great leaves' on my blog). And I can't forget Queens House (Romney Rd, Greenwich, London SE10 9NF), which is just beautiful.

4. Angel

When I shot here, both the photographer (Yossy) and I said this place was a hidden gem that so many bloggers aren't aware of. Angel has the look of Chelsea without the bustling crowds. There is also a shopping district that has a very village feel to it perfect for those 'this photo looks like it was shot outside of London, but in reality I didn't leave the M25'. Upper Street is perfect for restaurants and taking photos (I know which one I prefer).

5. The Eye

One of London's most popular tourist attraction comes in at number 6 on my list. Exit Embankment station and take a sharp right, and then a left at the traffic lights will take you to the riverside which is great for pictures getting the money shot of image of the London Eye.

6. Newsstands

Sadly, a lot of us don't read physical newspapers anymore. But one thing that does exist are newsstands. This one took a bit of detective work  a.k.a serious stalking. But the Good News Stand on Berwick Street is one not to be missed for the red autumnal tones.

7. Piccadilly & Regents Street. Say No More. The images accompanying this blog post were shot in Picadilly & Regents Street area - I recommend getting there early (8am) on a Sunday for minimal crowds.

8. Kew Gardens

I recently did a collaboration with Travelade on my instagram. Travelade is a platform where you can find recommendations and local insights from all across the world. One of the spots I put down was Kew Gardens. I haven't shot here (yet) but the Temperate House looks dreamy for both summer pictures and Autumn Winter shots. Especially with Christmas coming, Kew at Christmas is not to be missed.

9. Soutbank

I shot with one of my favourite photographers, Roz at Southbank. From skate parks to leafy roof top gardens, a walk along Belvedere Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8XT shows you all that London by the river has to offer.

Although some of these arent 'cliche' blogger spots - I hope you've been inspired by some of my favourite locations. I can't wait to scout out more places to shoot and share.
