London diaries: 5 Instagramable places in London

I’ve been in London for so long now but it still amazes me how beautiful the city is and how many things you can do here.

Today we’ll talk about 10 of the most Instagramable places in London, where to find them and when is the best time to go there.

1. Tower Bridge

Build between 1886 and 1894, the bridge has become one of Londons landmarks and one of the best loved historic sites. The bridge is open 365 days a year and you can either enjoy the view from inside, by paying a 10£ ticket, or from the outside which is as amazing as you can imagine.

The nearest station to Tower Bridge is London Bridge. You exit onto Tooley Street and cross the road to head down the riverside and you’ll see the bridge in front of you.

I always like to go early morning as I like to take my photos with less people in them or none if possible , but if you’re not a morning person, then try to avoid rush hours, as there will be a lot of commuters.

2. Red phone box

You see them all over London and let’s face it, you can’t come and visit London without taking a photo with them. Did you knew that the reason why the phone kiosks are red, was to make them easy to spot.

As mentioned before, there are so many scattered around London, but some of my favorite are located in : Parliament Square, Broad Court in Covent Garden, Victoria Embankment, opposite the London Eye.

3. London Eye

The London Eye or the Millennium wheel it’s Europe’s tallest observation wheel, and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in London.

I must admit I when now for quite a few number of times to see the beautiful London sunset, but I do have some favorite spots around it that you can enjoy for free.

4. Big Ben

Now, after 5 years of restoration, we can finally enjoy this beautiful landmark again.

Did you know that the iconic tower is one of the most Instagrammed landmarks on the planet? I mean, how can it not be, when you have such beauty in front of your eyes?!

I would recommend visiting early morning if you want to take some nice photos with no people in them, but if that doesn’t bother you then even better, as you can enjoy this beauty all day long.

5. The Gherkin

You can find the beautiful skyscraper in London’s primary financial district. Completed in December 2003 and opened in April 2004, this beautiful landmark is one of the cities most recognised example of contemporary architecture. The Gherkin has 41 floors and is 180 metres tall, offering you the most gorgeous view over the city of London!

Hope you guys will add this locations to your list when visiting London and make sure to check out my other posts for more stunning locations across town x
