3. Notting Hill, West London

This West London neighbourhood was made famous by the iconic film Notting Hill, since then it has become quite the popular for influencers, bloggers and tourists. Every weekend groups of people flock to these pastel houses to add a pop of colour to their Instagram feeds. We suggest heading there early or on a weekday to avoid waiting. We recommend hitting up St. Luke’s Mews,  you might recognise it from yet another rom com, this street was featured on Love Actually, in the devastatingly romantic scene where Keira Knightly receives a unexpected declaration of love.


Since you’re in the Neighbourhood, you might as well pop by the Biscuiteer’s Boutique and Icing Cafe for decadent desserts and a extra helping of aesthetically pleasing photo-ops.

God’s Own Junkyard is self proclaimed “a neon wonderland” in Walthamstow. If you are looking for the most unique instagrammable places in London, then look no further. This junkyard features hundreds of cheeky neon signs to light up your Instagram feed such as: “are you getting enough?”, ” it’s your favourite sins that do you in” and “I’m a mess”. They also have a cafe and fully licensed bar aptly named the Rolling Scones. If you want to go the extra mile then we suggest buying one of the retro Coca Cola bottles to use as a photo prop. One thing to note is that they don’t allow the use of DSLR cameras, but phones and film cameras are totally welcomed. So if you are a sucker for neon signs, then head on down!
