If you can’t help but get snap happy when you are discovering a new place, then head to one of the most photographic spots in the city. Primrose Hill is not only beautiful itself but it also has a panoramic backdrop of the city that features the London Eye, the Shard and the BT Tower, making it a prime photo spot.

Exploring bookshops in different countries can often be lots of fun and Daunt Books is the perfect spot for any student who loves to flick through a book or two. The endless lines of oak shelves in this gorgeous Edwardian independent bookshop make it an Instagrammer’s dream. Selfie opportunities pop up round every corner and if you can’t make it to the big shop on Marylebone High Street, head to one of the equally beautiful shops in Holland Park, Hampstead or Belsize Park.
This enormous cemetery that dates back to the Victorian times is filled to the brim with history. With many graves belonging to famous people, this is an unusual and somewhat quirky place to take some interesting images. You can explore on your own or tag along on a guided tour of the cemetery. The atmosphere is definitely eerie, especially as it features the most intricate headstones and crypts in the country, but it’s all worth it for the photos you’ll take – you’ll definitely get some ‘Insta-worthy pics’ here!
The Street Art of Camden Town
Camden Town is a beautifully alternative part of the city, famous for its stunning street art.

Make sure you head off the beaten path too and wander the little side streets; it is here that you will take the most postable pictures, without a doubt!
The Kings Cross Tunnel
If wall art is something you enjoy photographing for your Instagram posts, then Kings Cross Tunnel is a spot you really must see. The stunning mural is 90 metres long and runs the length of the wall between Kings Cross and St Pancras International. It has been made a real feature and is now lit up with LED lights.
