Rain or shine, London is arguably one of the most photogenic destinations in the world: You simply can't beat a city that was founded in the Roman times and has been accumulating historical landmarks ever since.

The Big Ben and red telephone booths already get plenty of play on Instagram, but capturing London's unique beauty doesn't stop there. Ahead, we round up 10 delightful points of interest that will bait tons of double-taps on social media.

Covent Garden
This food and shopping emporium is one of the busiest tourist attractions in town, and it's not hard to see why: The stunning glass ceiling lets in tons of natural light, and the interior displays — ranging from clusters of balloons to floral arrangements — are constantly updated.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden
You've likely heard of The Ivy on West Street, a dining hotspot favored by celebrities and the jet set. With an entrance dripped in ivy leaves and wisteria blossoms, the sister location in Chelsea is equally worth a pit stop.
