Top tips: Best places to photograph in London

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

So you’re thinking of heading into London with your digital camera; batteries fully charged, SD cards formatted, lenses cleaned and tripod at the ready… but where to head first? There’s an overwhelming choice in London so we thought we’d provide you with a few ideas to get you started. We have come up with a dozen places worthy of checking out.

Before setting off you need to consider the time of day and weather conditions. If you’re after nice soft light then head out early morning or later afternoon, if you want harsh contrasting light then it’s midday for you. Of course, for night shots…well it goes without saying!
