In a city where every corner offers a unique photo opportunity, we compile the ultimate list of the best places for photos in London, including some of the most beautiful and creative locations. Whether it is to simply hone your photography skills or to capture the family in around this diverse city, we have you covered with this list.<\p>
Shoreditch is where the cool kids hangout and thanks to its busy markets, ethnic diversity and graffiti (including Banksy) it is great for street photography lovers.
Shoreditch links The City with the East End of London with the famous Brick Lane running straight through the middle.
Columbia road flower market is our favourite. Full of interesting people going about their business and, of course, the vast array of colours to soak up with your lens.
If its graffiti your after then the Cargo Club on Rivington street is home to two of Banksy’s pieces. Or walk along Brick lane from one end to the other and you’ll see some great street art.
Often overlooked, the Barbican is a concrete estate built in the sixties and is a prominent example of British Brutalist architecture. Today the estate is still used as a housing estate, although nowadays the flats can go for huge sums.
The Barbican offers some of the most striking photography available in London, with concrete backdrops and showers of light seeping through the concrete underpasses and walkways. It also has a softer side with gardens and 2 man-made lakes.
The Barbican may not be an obvious choice but it is certainly one of the best places for photos in London.
