Fisheye lens images on screen of iphone

Suppose Instagram is your daily addiction.

You’re traveling to London, and you’re all geared up to enchant your followers with a kickass photo-diary. But you don’t really know where to start, and you don’t own a GoPro nor a fancy DSLR camera.

Don’t panic my friend; we’ll help you take beautiful pictures just with your iPhone. The places we have in mind don’t need some alien equipment to go viral.

So without further ado, check out our selected pick of the best Instagram spots in London…

 

1. One New Change / St. Paul

St. Paul has been one of London’s most stunning views for centuries.

However, since 2010, the One New Change transformed the church’s panorama forever, upgrading the older baroque style with its contemporary architecture of glass.

Dare shooting from new perspectives, in this highly strategic building. Whether itbe from the ground or the rooftop bar, you’ll capture the most epic views of the Cathedral!

And since you’re here to amaze and innovate, why not use your iPhone camera lens for the occasion?

2. Natural History Museum

Our guilty reason for choosing this spot is that it’s so darn fun to visit.

The more “reasonable” reason is that it will feed your Insta Feed like a piece of cake. For instance, the huge skeleton in the entrance hall is a perennial cause of “WOWs!”. The scary or goofy dinosaurs a few rooms ahead are the perfect models to try your telephoto lens on, framing them in a cult Jurassic portrait.

As an added bonus, if you visit in the winter, you’ll find the spectacular Ice Rink outside the Museum. Again: it’s fun as fudge and, better, it’s an obvious viral picture generator. You must see it.

3. London Eye

Ok, this one is an Instaclassic already.

From the top, the vista is amazing: with a panoramic view of the Big Ben and the House of Parliament, and the Thames and the rest of the buzzlingcity in the background. Or you might justwant to take a radpicture of the Wheel itself – it is pretty memorable indeed.

Whatever you do, it’ll be worth it. After all, the London Eye got its name for a reason: it’s all about the view. Your job now is turning that into phenomenal photos.

You probably know this one as London’s most sold miniature or as Fergie’s (Black Eyed Peas) favorite spot.

Whatever the case, you’ll find that the bridge’s beautiful architecture will hit your Insta followers with all its British charm. But even better, the towers offer a unique vantage point to photograph the east side of Thames from above.

Don’t be afraid to get up there, and show those Londoners what you’re capable of.

5. Sky Garden

Advertised as “London’s highest public garden,”this skyscraper is all about its mystical atmosphere.

Outside, its wonky shape won it the unflattering nickname Walkie Talkie; inside, the city below mingles with the surrounding sky and the garden in a gorgeous view.

Pointless to say that the best time to visit might be sunset?

6. The Shard

A daring masterpiece of contemporary architecture, this bold pyramid of glass challenges our conventional notions of space and size.

If you wanted to use your brand-new wide lens in London, this is the spot.

The Shard towers above everything else.

Just visit the top floors and capture the whole size of London. 

7. House of Parliament

London’s most iconic view, with the stunning gothic façade of the Palace and the towering Big Ben, a celebrity of its own. 

History has been made between these walls, but today you can finally visit the House and, perhaps, unveil the secrets enclosed within its chambers.

According to some rumors, the Queen Herself enjoys wandering through the corridors of this Royal Palace. So, if it’s internet glory that you seek, make sure to bring your telephoto lens with you, in case you encounter her. You don’t want to waste this unique opportunity with a weak shot, do you?

 

8. The Millenium Bridge

Another magnificent spot for a mouth-watering view of St Paul. 

The bridge itself is not particularly high-positioned or pretty, but it arises in a superlative location. On the south bank of the river, you can see Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the bizarre building of the Tate Modern. On the north bank, again, the white marbles of St Paul and its wonderful dome.

Standing at the top of the bridge, you can also admire the western and eastern sections of the Thames at once, and there the panorama is uniquely beautiful. This is why you should always have your wide lens on you; you never know when the next amazing vista is going to enthrall you!

9. The Gherkin

Another acclaimed masterpiece of contemporary architecture.

Its curvy zeppelin shape has been a distinctive picture in London’s skyline ever since it was completed in 2003. As a city’s instant landmark, it won the prestigious Stirling Prize for architecture, with a unanimous (for the first time) vote of the judges.

Whether you’re enjoying the panoramic view from oneof the top levels, or its unusual futuristic design from the street, the Gherkin is another spot that you can’t skip.
