Victoria Tower Gardens
Just past the Houses of Parliament is Victoria Tower Gardens. So many people don’t know this beautiful place exists! Not only is this park a lovely place to visit and relax for a bit, but it makes for absolutely beautiful photo opportunities too. Head to the river bank and get some shots of the London Eye and Westminster Bridge. Hold out until there are some red buses in the background.
Houses of Parliament
Take some photos in front of the Houses of Parliament for an interesting, textured background, not to mention all of the history you’ll be stood in front of! Try to get a shot with a black taxi or red bus in it too.
Red Telephone Boxes
A classic! There are a bunch of boxes you can take a photo with in the Westminster area, right by the two spots I’ve already mentioned. I don’t recommend going too far inside them though, they’re usually pretty smelly… yeck.
The London Eye
The best place to take photos of and with the London Eye is across the river and on Victoria Embankment. It’s also a much quieter spot that anywhere near the London Eye where you might try to take a photo, including on Westminster Bridge. Plus, the straight-on photo looks incredible.
Do you like the photos you’ve seen so far? You can get ones like these too. Keep reading…
Navigate to this beautiful little part of the city for pictures with incredible architecture and greenery in the background. It’s not usually too crowded in here, so you’ll be able to get some great photos without crowds of people in the background.
How to get good photos
If you see these photos and think “wow, mine would never come out like these”, don’t worry, I totally get it. Mine wouldn’t either! Plus, I personally would never trust a stranger to hold my (expensive) camera and take a photo of me… I can pretty much guarantee that the picture will come out rubbish, or that the stranger will make off with my camera. Not ideal!
