Photo London: Capturing Summer in the City

Summer in London: you can complain  about the Central Line turning into a sauna, or revel in the beauty of the streets shining brightly in the sun. What better way to make the most of this wonderful city than venturing out and snapping some of London’s most Instagram-worthy spots? Your followers will be direct messaging you to hang out in no time.

Madison, St. Paul’s

A popular bar among the city crowd, Madison offers some of the most Instagram-worthy views of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Coq D’Argent, Bank

If the queue to get into Madison is too long, Coq D’Argent is a short walk away with a heated rooftop garden and a delicious French menu. The food is screaming out for its own Instagram snaps but don’t let it distract you from the panoramic views of the city.

Frank’s Cafe, Peckham

This unlikely South London venue is an all-rounder serving brunch, dinner and cocktails while offering views of London from south of the River Thames. Who knew you could find such a beautiful spot on top of a car park?

Radio Rooftop, The Strand

Radio isn’t in the name for nothing; this venue on The Strand offers a party atmosphere with views of some of London’s most iconic landmarks. Grab yourself a cocktail and prime your self-timer…

The Peace Pagoda, Battersea Park

Anyone would think a photo of this beautiful monument would be from a Japanese photo album. The Peace Pagoda in Battersea Park is a gift to us all offering beautiful views of Chelsea Embankment. No need for a 13-hour flight to Japan when you can just take a walk through this South London park.

The Churchill Arms, Kensington

Hayfever sufferers beware, as this pub is decked in a fair few flowers. It also claims to be London’s most famous watering hole…

Notting Hill

The brightly coloured houses that dominate the Notting Hill area are a frequent backdrop among fashion bloggers. So why not get a dash of colour in your Instagram feed with the candy coloured houses and a browse through the antique shops of Portobello Road?

Anywhere and everywhere…

London is all about contrasts, discovery and exploring. Anywhere is an Instagram-worthy spot with the right lighting, composition and caption. Everywhere has it’s own secret spots to be discovered.

Where will your London adventures take you this summer?
