London is an absolute gem and I absolutely love it! There is so much to see and do, and you’ll never be bored. Quite frankly its an Instagrammers dream and you won’t be left short on choice. That being said, it can be a bit overwhelming when trying to narrow down the best spots. I’ve curated a list to inspire you and help you to get the prettiest and tastiest looking pictures possible .Here are the most instagrammable spots in London.
Note: forget your diet. The food places are too tempting to pass up!
116 Ebury St, Belgravia, London
You haven’t been to London if you haven’t visited this amazing cake shop. Its pretty pink facade covered in flowers transports you into a fairy tale as soon as you lock eyes on the baby pink walls in Belgravia, London.
Started by an award-winning cake designer and author, Peggy Porcshen, there is good reason that it is one of the most instagrammed spots in London. The delights are a little on the pricier side, but definitely worth it.

Notting Hill is picture perfect, and thats why you’ll always find bloggers and tourists camera in hand strolling down Portobello Road and the likes in Notting Hill. Colourful houses, cute cars and an abundance of trendy cafes make it ultra Instagram worthy.
24 Rupert Street, London W1D 6DQ
If you love ice cream and macarons then you will fall head over heels for Yolkin. Originally started as a pop up shop, the owner Sammie has now opened her first store! Sammie loves to bake, especially macarons but as they only call for egg whites she didn’t want to waste the yolks so searched for recipes where they had yolk in. Hence the name Yokin and the pairing of an ice cream including yolks with the macarons.

32 London Bridge St, London SE1 9SG, UK
The Shard, also referred to as The Shard Of Glass, is a 95 story skyscraper that is home to some of the best offices, restaurants and hotels in London. The iconic shard is one of the best places to take amazing pictures of London. Head to the bar without a reservation or make a reservation for lunch.
Bubble Wrap Waffle
24 Wardour St, London W1D 6QJ
Having spent some time on Instagram I am sure that you have come across these strangely shaped ubiquitous bubble waffles from Bubble Wrap Waffle. All foodie instagrammers have at least one gram in their feed of these scrumptious desserts. The menu may be limited, but they do occasionally have seasonal specials. Nonetheless make sure you get your hands on one, or two, next time you’re in London. The que can be long but it’s worth the wait.
If you love the hipster vibe and amazing graffiti then be sure to head to Shoreditch. You can spend hours wondering the streets ins search of graffiti. There are even tours that you can join if you wish to do so. There are some amazing places to eat too so you can remain fuelled along your trip.
Covent garden is located in the West End, London’s main theatre and entertainment area. It is renowned for its beautiful stores and luxury fashion. There are various award winning restaurants and a car-free piazza. You’ll definitely be able to snap some amazing ‘grams here.
87-135 Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7XL
Harrods is a luxury department store located on Brompton Road. Although it is very expensive, it’s amazing to meander through the various floors. Beautifully decorated and jaw-dropping, you can spend hours gawking at everything. Treat yourself to something in the food hall. One of the best times to view Harrods in all its splendour is during the festive season when it is adorned with amazing lights and decorations.
