The Most Instagrammable Places In London

Last year we published a blog giving you a bunch of “Instagrammable” places around London. If you missed that, go and check it out here London’s Instagram Hotspots

This year we thought we’d give you some more photo motifs to make your friends look at your Instagram feed in awe. So let’s get started on that!

The Gallery at Sketch

The millennial pink Gallery designed by French architect India Mahdavi boasts 91 artworks by British artist David Shrigley on its tables and walls, setting the perfect backdrop for your afternoon tea ‘gram. Don’t forget to grab a bathroom selfie amongst their futuristic egg pod toilets.

God’s Own Junkyard

This incredible warehouse is a museum-like display for neon artist Chris Bracey’s personal creations, from vintage signage to his custom-made orders used in Hollywood blockbusters.

Best time for pics: It is open Friday and Saturday from 11:00 to 9:00 pm and Sunday from 11:00 to 6:00 pm.
Cost: Free
Location: Unit 12, Ravenswood Industrial Estate, Shernhall St, Walthamstow, E17 9HQ


St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel – Grand Staircase

This stunning hotel has one of the most impressive staircases I’ve ever seen. Technically you should be a guest to enter so maybe ask for permission first. For nice pictures look for leading lines, shapes and patterns, or also consider adding someone into your photograph.

Best time for pics: Anytime
Cost: Night at the hotel or ask for permission
Location: Euston Rd, Kings Cross, NW1 2AR


The Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College

Close to the Queens House is the Painted Gallery in the Old Royal Navy College. The ceiling has impressive paintings on the ceiling and the entire room is just stunning. In the main room keep an eye out for reflections to use in your photographs such as below.

Best time for pics: Open daily 10:00​ – 17:00
Cost: Adult £11, Student £7.50. Online booking discount of £1 applied.
Location: Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, SE10 9NN


The Churchill Arms

Probably the most decorated pub in London, this pub makes for an awesome photo (or drink). As it’s located close to Notting Hill Gate you could pop here before, or after, exploring the other areas.

Best time for pics: Day
Cost: Free
Location: 119 Kensington Church St, Kensington, W8 7LN


St Paul’s Cathedral

Below is one of the classic St Paul’s Cathedral shots that you may often see on Instagram. The Cathedral is iconic Christopher Wren architecture at its best and has dominated the London skyline for over 300 years.

This shot is from One New Change. The reflections in the shiny mirror-like windows of the mall add to the Instagrammability of the shot. Another great place for photography at this location is to take the elevator (which is behind in the image below) to the top where you’ll find a nice roof terrace with a bar and you will get some high views. Try coming to this location at sunset for much better light.

Best time for pics: Anytime
Cost: Free
Location: 1 New Change, EC4M 9AF
