8 Hot Spots That Are Instagram Gold

We admit to a mild Instagram obsession. The main thing feeding our addiction: the must-visit spots we discover through all those photos. Whenever this writer “likes” a selfie, it’s usually due to the ingenious location rather than the happy face smiling before it. There are only so many double-decker buses, views from the London Eye, and Waterloo Bridge sunset shots a Londoner can take.
Instead, it’s time to step off the beaten track and snap away at the London backdrops that are not only a pleasure to visit, but 24-carat Instagram gold. So, charge up your phone and take to the streets with our guide to the ultimate Insta-worthy haunts. Ahead: the brunch destination with the best mirrored bathroom this side of Palm Springs, an Art Deco hotel entrance made for martinis, a lift that transports you to outer space, and more. Are you ready for your close-up?
