London is full of beautiful places where you could take breathtaking pictures. You can find all the touristic spots such as Westminster Abbey, the Tower, or Big Ben in any tour guide yet not here. As London is one the most photogenic destinations, I will show you secret and charming spots to visit and to capture amazing photos.
The capital of Great Britain is rather dynamic and offers a great share of Instagram-worthy cafes and restaurants. The food industry in London keeps up with current trends creating more and more photogenic corners challenging each other in the most appealing decor and the best latte art. Every time travelling to the U.K. is a time rush for me to visit all the old and newly-opened places, so my “must-do” list becomes neverending! They are tempting me with flowery walls, pink facades and totally mouthwatering food porn. So, here you go with the 5 most beautiful restaurants in London that deserve a top spot on your Instagram feed.
Elan Cafe has clocked on to all Insta-actions. Just imagine, a huge pink flower wall in full bloom, colourful acai bowls, cakes and coffee in a pink-hued paradise. I don’t need to describe it more, just have a look at the pictures. This cafe is too pretty. And, of course, very instagrammable and picture-worthy.
The greatest thing about this place is its outdoor terrace that is a wonderful escape for any weather: covered from the rain, heated and fancy decorated (especially for Christmas season). The restaurant is very easy to find, perfectly located in The Bloomsbury hotel. What I like the most about this places, is that it is very elegant and poetic, named after the eponymous character created by Virginia Woolf, an author whose name will forever be associated with Bloomsbury.
Peggy Porschen Cakes
This is the girliest cafe you could ever imagine. It was founded in 2011 by the famous Londonian cake designer Peggy Porschen who invites you to try freshly baked cupcakes, cookies and other sweets which easily could be called a masterpiece. The whole place is a door to a pastel fairy tale – a world of delights. The latte art is another pretty thing about this place. What can be better than a strawberry cake and a cup of cappuccino on a calm Sunday morning?
Farm Girl cafe appeared in Notting Hill thanks to Rose Mann, an Australian girl who moved to London and brought with her the idea of creating a simple cosy cafe with healthy food. As soon as the cafe opened, it was flooded by bloggers because it’s not only proposing healthy and delicious food, but astonishes with exotic mixes of ingredients and, most importantly, is beautifully presented. This place is very crowded, especially on the weekends, so better come early.
This is one the most Instagrammed restaurant in London, and it is for good reason. When I have any chance of visiting London, I repeat my perfectly British afternoon tea experience at Sketch. I would travel the world for those salmon sandwiches! Admiring pink walls with hundreds of sketches by David Shrigley, funny cartoon-like cutlery, velvet furniture and rose gold plated bar would be the best afternoon tea experience you can offer yourself. And, I should also mention that it is not only picture perfect but, actually, amazingly delicious with dozens of choice for the tea, delicate desserts, and even black caviar for the starter. But if you want to go for some real meal, Glade offers tasty brunches and the interior is even prettier. Oops! I should not reveal everything, so the more you can wonder when trying it yourself.
