Everyone who knows me – or has ever had to travel in my company – knows that I’m always on the lookout for scenic views and viewing points with great photo opportunities. Whether I’m hiking or visiting another bustling metropolis, towers, mountains, and rooftop cafés are always the first ones to make it onto my itinerary – and it’s no different when I’m back in the UK. I’ve spent the last 3.5 years living relatively close to London, and since most of my friends live here, I usually spend my weekends wandering around the capital. During these 3.5 years, I’ve been to some amazing places both in and outside of London, and I want to share some of my favourites with you today.
So, if you’re like me, and you’re looking for the best spots to admire the London skyline or take great photos from, today’s post is for you. In no particular order, here are 9 of my favourite places with the best views of London – some of which are free!
1) Greenwich Park
One of the things I love about London is the sheer amount of green space we have scattered around the city. Hyde Park and Epping Forest are two of my all time favourite places, and I love the fact that you don’t have to go far (or even leave London) for a bit of peace and quiet. Just hop on the tube for half an hour, and you’ll find yourself in a completely different environment.
