The best spots in the UK for a great instagram picture

If you’re always looking for the perfect spot to take a casual, candid Insta-shot, you’ll understand how exciting it is to find some hidden gems. Sometimes the best places are somewhere a little unique and these can really up your Instagram game, so here are some of our favorites in the UK.


Of course, the capital of England is going to have a whole load of fantastic locations for you to take pictures in. Get a fun shot in front of Buckingham Palace trying to meet the Queen, or having a fancy meal at the top of The Shard with amazing views. Try to get the city lit up at night from the London Eye for an amazing perspective. There is also a whole host of hipster bars, hidden cocktail clubs, and fantastic art so you really won’t run out of things to photograph!

The Peak District

This National Park is known for being an area of outstanding beauty and as such will give you some of the most spectacular views in the UK. Imagine taking a picture from the top of Mam Tor, or during sunset while standing on one of the majestic peaks and coupling it with an inspirational quote!


Visit Heacham in Norfolk when the lavender fields are in bloom for some incredible shots! You could be in France at the Provence Vineyards looking at the view, but really you’re just in Norfolk! Sadly, an Instagram picture won’t be able to capture the amazing smell, but maybe when you look at the photos, you will be taken straight back there.


Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places in the UK, with gorgeous cliffs and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Head over to Porthcurno if you want to take fun beach shots that look like you could be somewhere tropical, or go to Minack Theatre to catch some cultural snaps in this open-air performance space.

Cardigan Bay

This Welsh area is perhaps not the first place you would think of when it comes to taking Instagram pictures, but when you consider the fact that there are bottlenose dolphins available to photograph off the shoreline, quirky market towns and incredible landscapes, you will have to clear some room on your phone storage to make sure you can get them all!


Shaftesbury is a very picturesque little town to take gorgeous shots in, especially on a clear day when you can see over Blackmore Vale and even Glastonbury Tor. Get a picture of you walking the cobbled streets in some of the quaint villages as the sun is coming up and we are sure you’ll love it!


The capital of Scotland really is very beautiful. You could take some amazing OOTD pictures in front of Edinburgh castle, or climb to the top of Arthur’s Seat for some incredible views to use as backgrounds. Head there during the Christmas markets for some gorgeous shots featuring Mulled Wine and festive decorations.

When it comes to having a killer Instagram feed, a lot of it depends on getting unique shots in unusual places. Whether you are a #TravelBlogger or you want to share your #OOTD – at least you now know the best places in the UK to do so!
