Not only is London a major European city, but it is also a hub for all things youthful, creative and, of course, posh. Picture this: you’re walking down the street with shopping bags full of your new finds from Harrods and Topshop, admiring the double-decker buses and beautiful storefronts. So, what to do next you may be wondering? Time to explore and model your new outfits!

Pack your bags and your camera; here are four of the best spots to snap some pics for the ‘gram.

Notting Hill

This vibrant, trendy neighborhood houses some of the best vintage stores and outdoor markets in London. As you make your way down the sidestreets, rows of adorable rainbow-colored buildings grab your attention. Make sure to wear a cute outfit because this spot is too photogenic not to feature on your Insta.

Pro tip: When you begin to edit your favorite picture, amp up the saturation to make the colors of the buildings pop even more!

Streets to visit: Portobello Road, Denbigh Terrace, Colville Terrace and Lancaster Road.

Mews Streets


You’re probably thinking ‘What is a mews?’ Built in the 18th and 19th centuries, Mews Streets served as stables for horses. Today, the gorgeous alleyways are transformed into charming homes. Plants and flowers line the cobblestone paths, adding character and color. Not only are they unique to London, but they are also perfect to pose in front of while wearing your fav outfit.

Bar Elba

Before traveling to London, make sure to join the Facebook group called ‘Secret Londo.’ Here, you will discover trendy places like Bar Elba. Located in Waterloo, this rooftop bar has fun murals that will definitely flood your Insta Stories. Not to mention, its amazing menu features four kinds of French fries, which will definitely score major likes on Instagram. This is for sure the perfect spot for a GNO filled with pink drinks and pictures! Make sure to try the Frosé and Cheesy fries.

Take the Underground train system to Waterloo Station, then head to this address:

Did you actually travel to London if you didn’t post a picture pretending to use a phone booth? Capture the essence of London by posing in front of an iconic red telephone box. Located all over the city, these boxes are recognizable symbols of London. Make sure to explore the streets during golden hour for picture perfect lighting. Bonus points if you rock a red element in your outfit to match the booth!

Popular areas such as Covent Garden and Westminster Abbey definitely have phone booths nearby. Or you can challenge yourself to find some unique ones for #aesthetics.


Whether it be the insane fashion, beautiful sights or to-die-for accents, any UGirl will for sure enjoy her time in the U.K. Bon Voyage!
