Best Spots For Photography In London

London is terrific city for photography enthusiasts of all types ranging from amateurs to professionals. With iconic buildings, beautiful gardens and striking architecture it offers an array of opportunities to get the perfect shot.

If you intend to spend a holiday in London, then staying in Central London, will offer boundless opportunities to photograph some of the most visually striking attractions of the city. A good choice would be The Metropolis London Hyde Park that is located near the scenic beauty of Hyde Park.

Another suitable spot is the Paddington area with the Paddington Court Executive Rooms located in a picturesque locale, and in close proximity to some of the best sights in the city.

Some of the best spots for photography in London are:

The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben: Two of the most striking symbols of the city are its famous Houses of Parliament and of course Big Ben that are symbolically representative of the city. Photographs of both the landmarks are instantly recognisable the world over and they do indeed make for a magnificent photo op. The best time for photography is around sunset when the skyline casts a golden hue in the background. The best spot to click great photographs is to cross the Thames River from which you can get some of the best angles and long distance photographs.  Whether close-ups or long distance shots the images are always breathtaking!

The Tower Bridge: A fabulous historic landmark, the Tower Bridge is another one of the most photographed locations in London. There is something surreal about bridges, which make them ideal spots for photography. Whatever the angle and light conditions, the Tower Bridge with its imposing structure commands the attention of photographers who visit the city. For the best shots cross over to the South Bank of the Thames and move towards City Hall (incidentally another fabulous location for photography). You will find a pedestrian zone and plenty of photographers waiting for the right light to snap their shutterbugs. The result is bound to be simply awesome.

Portobello Market: While London is home to some of the finest street markets in Europe, Portobello Market is in a class of its own. With wonderful colourful architecture in the background and stalls that sell an incredible variety of items, it is a photographer’s delight.

Red phone booths: Speaking of quintessentially British, the Red Phone Booths are one of the most enduring symbols of London (along with the red double-decker buses). You will be lucky if you find one working (considering everyone uses cell phones) and they make for a great photo opportunity. In case you are wondering where to find them there are quite a few close to Westminster Abbey and spread over other spots in London.

The Millennium Bridge: Another fabulous bridge, albeit a newer addition to the city skyline the Millennium Bridge is a exclusively a pedestrian only bridge that spans the Thames. It is someway midway between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge and offers some of the most spectacular views of the London skyline and the landmarks in the vicinity.  An added bonus is the unimpeded view that it offers of St. Paul’s Cathedral that is a photo-op in itself.

Trafalgar Square: Probably the most famous square in entire Britain, Trafalgar Square is a popular haunt for visitors to London and a favourite meeting place. The imposing lion statutes are a visual treat that look majestic and inspire awe at the same time. One of the best times to get the best photographs in the area is during evening when the crowds tend to wane. After all you would not want tourists interrupting your photo ops when in the area!

Southbank:  The South Side of the Thames is best described as the city’s cultural hub. It plays host to a variety of film, art and performance venues and offers impressive views of the magnificent London Eye. Located slap bang in the centre of the city, it is close to some of the best landmarks in London. Another location that offers incredible photography opportunities!

St. James Park: While London is home to some of the most beautiful parks and natural landscape one of the most beautiful is St. James Park. Spread over 23 hectares with a small lake and two islands it is one of the most picturesque locations in the city. With incredible landscape, amazing views all around and verdant nature it is an ideal photography location.

 Buckingham Palace: While London is home to some of the most spectacular royal palaces in Europe, Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth is a photographer’s dream come true. With some of the most beautiful architecture and amazing scenery, the palace is a visual treat that defies the imagination. You need a real high quality camera to capture the palace in entirety, as it is massive. While there do not miss to click photographs of one of the most colourful and exciting ceremonies held in front of the palace the ceremonial Changing of the Guard.  Of course, be ready to jostle with the throngs of crowds that swarm the event.

The London Eye: While there may be plenty of Ferris wheels across the world, nothing quite compares to the majestic London Eye. One of the newer additions o the London skyline, it offers the perfect photo op, whether from aboard its capsules or outside. A truly amazing sight it looks even more stunning in the nights when it is lit up and looks incredibly beautiful. Its location on the banks of the Thames River makes it more striking.

The British Museum: While there may be museums galore in London, nothing quite matches the architectural splendour of the British Museum. Whether you shoot photos from its ground floor or up its winding staircase, the images are always going to be quite brilliant.
