I’m working on a series of London posts to share the lovely experiences I had there! Here are my recommendations on places for blog photography spots in and around London. I hope you enjoy! Even if you aren’t a blogger, these locations are still awesome to see.
If you love graffiti, you’d love the town of Shoreditch. It’s a very artsy area covered in street art. Shoreditch is definitely an area for young creatives and trendsetters, with its fashionable hangout spots, clubs, and vintage shops.
My personal experience in Shoreditch was the basement vintage market, which was so cool to experience with all the local designers and talented individuals. While I was on my trip with Fashion for Conservation, my experience in Shoreditch was exploring the artsy streets for behind the scenes photoshoots. Aside from that, our after party was hosted at Dark Sugars Cocoa House, which has the most aesthetic looking chocolate I’ve ever seen in my life.
As an area, I would say Shoreditch is definitely worth a tram ride.
This was probably my favorite town of the trip. It is so pretty with its all white buildings, and cute shops. Not to mention it has the National History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, which I’ll be mentioning in an upcoming post!
Bloggers: do not miss out on South Kensington if you want to do an outfit shoot. I did one with Karya, who took the pictures below. Two Seattle girls in London during the same time, what are the odds?

If you like more of a nature backdrop, and love flowers in your pictures, then Kew Gardens would be an amazing location for you. They have a botanical garden with a beautiful spiral. staircase up to the top, with exotic plants and flowers. There is also many outdoor sculptures and mini gardens with cool designs.
If you’re a succulent lover like me, there’s also a whole outdoor section for outdoor plants right outside the gift shop that make for an adorable backdrop as well.
The day we went to Camden was really cloudy and pretty dark, not making lighting for outfit shots, however, the market makes for a really unique hipster vibe if you’re into that for your pictures. The canal is also right next to the market, so you have cute bridges and the waterfront for options as well.
