Best Autumn Photo Spots Around London

Photography Spots London

London might not be known for its great weather but that doesn’t mean you should dismiss this as a holiday destination when the mercury starts to drop. During the autumn months, London is a riot of colour. As the leaves turn orange and red, it makes the capital the perfect place to get that Instagram worthy picture to show off your London adventure.

There are so many places to get a great photo in London, especially near your Park Grand Kensington accommodation. But when you really want to capture the beautiful autumn vibe of the city, you should try heading to these seven spots:

Regent’s Park

Regent’s Park

The large open space and stunning tree lined pathways found at Regent’s Park are ideal for snapping the colours of the season. The mixture of walkways and formal gardens give you plenty of opportunities to find the spot that will give your photo the wow factor.

The London Eye

The London Eye offers incredible photo opportunities all year round and autumn is no different. Get above the skyline to get breathtaking views of the capital in all its glory. Pick a sunny, crisp day for the best results and images that capture London for miles.

The River Thames


Give your photos a different perspective by taking to the Thames on one of the many boats that travel up and down the river. From the river, you’ll be able to snap the hustle and bustle of an autumn day in the capital, with bright colours and people wrapped up against the chill.

The Mall

Trafalgar Square

Connecting Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square, the Mall is one of the most walked tourist spots in London. It makes for such great photos in the autumn thanks to it being tree lined. With the colour of autumn framing it, Buckingham Palace will look even more stunning in your photograph.

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens is an oasis of calm in the thriving capital, making it a great spot to head to with your camera. The treetop walkway gives you an excellent chance to shoot autumn in all its glory, while the glasshouse and historic buildings will add something interesting.

Hyde Park

Hyde Park

As with all the Royal Parks, Hyde Park is an excellent place to explore and snap photos. From your Park Grand Kensington accommodation, it’s just a 15-minute walk to everything the park is home to, including the Serpentine, Speakers’ Corner, and the Diana Memorial Fountain.

Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath

If you’re looking for more open spaces that are beautiful in the autumn, try out Hampstead Heath – it’s one of the most popular spots in London year round and gives you a glimpse of the stunning English countryside.

Of course, you don’t have to get outdoors to take stunning autumnal photographs. Heading indoors gives you just as many opportunities and when you are staying at one of the Kensington London Hotels, you’re in the right place to get that cosy snap.

Head into snug cafes for a delicious hot chocolate, historic pubs for warming dishes, or one of the many fall exhibitions to capture the chilly feeling indoors. You’ll be rewarded with great photos of your trip to London.
