Cameras at the ready, it’s time to get snapping. If you’re in London, there are many weird and wonderful sights and skylines worthy of an Instagram or two. But forget Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, everyone snaps these shots. Instead, capture some fun and quirky photographs in some of London’s famous spots…
1. Platform 9 ¾
If you’ve read the books or watched the films, you’ll know what we’re on about. Yes, Harry Potter. Re-create the iconic moment where the wizards walk through the walls between platforms 9 and 10 at King’s Cross Station. Complete with a luggage trolley embedded in the wall, you can pretend you’re setting off to start your magical journey to Hogwarts.
2. M&M’s World
It’s a bit of a strange one, but M&M’s World (yes, M&M’s) in Leicester Square has become quite the tourist attraction. Four floors and 35,000 square feet of chocolate, merchandise and more chocolate. But amongst the chocolate, are some life-size M&M’s statues. From James Bond and a Royal Guard, to the M&M’s Abbey Road, take a pose next to your favourite M&M’s and share with chocolate lovers around the world. After all, it’s not every day you get your photo taken with a life-size chocolate.
3. Abbey Road
Talking of Abbey Road, why not visit the real Abbey Road (and not just the M&M’s version)? Grab 3 friends and head to the sport where the world-famous photograph of Paul, George, John and Ringo was taken. As the four of you stand one behind another across the zebra crossing, get someone to take the photo and re-create the iconic Beatles moment.
4. Red telephone box
The red telephone box was once a common sight across the UK and a design associated with Britain, in particularly, London. But with the rise of the mobile phone, the need for the pay phones have massively decreased. So, if you do manage to spot one in the city – be sure to take a photo of the iconic British landmark, as they might not be around forever!
If you’re a fan of supercars head towards luxury department store, Harrods. More often than not you’ll see shiny supercars descend upon the capital’s most lavish streets. From Lamborghinis and Ferraris to Rolls-Royces and Porches, it’s every supercar lover’s dream. How many will you spot and snap?
