London is one of the world’s best cities, a vibrant place where cultures meet and there are a million hidden gems for visitors to discover. It’s also the perfect place to snap some selfies in iconic locations. If you’re planning to stay with Montcalm hotels London, we’d definitely recommend you grab your camera and head to these top selfie spots.
The London Eye
When it was first constructed at the turn of the century, the London Eye was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. While it’s since been surpassed by other attractions around the globe, it still boasts incredible views across the city. Who wouldn’t love a selfie with the whole of London as the backdrop? However, if you don’t make it onto the attraction itself, you can still get a good selfie with the Eye in the background from across the Thames on Victoria Embankment.
The large scale billboards of Piccadilly Circus are London’s answer to Times Square. You’ll get an iconic backdrop to your selfie with the billboards alone, but if you’re lucky you might even be able to capture a famous red London bus at the same time!
Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament
Together, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament form one of London’s most iconic structures, known as the Palace of Westminster. Located on the edge of the Thames, there is plenty of opportunity for selfie-seekers to get that perfect shot. Due to the height and size of the building it can sometimes get a little tricky to position the perfect selfie so we’d recommend trying out a number of different angles and locations to make it work.
The Thames proudly flowing through the city means London is home to some beautiful bridges, and Tower Bridge is arguably the most impressive. You can get a good shot of the Bridge’s two towers from either side of the river and if you’re on an evening stroll, it’s even more picturesque when lit up as the night draws in.
For most of us, it’s rare that we’re able to get up close and personal with our favourite celebs. But at Madame Tussauds you can do just that. You can pose with almost anyone – from the Queen to the queen of selfies, Kim Kardashian. While we can’t guarantee it will be as exciting as meeting your favourite celebrity in the flesh, a trip to Madame Tussauds can still make for an excellent collection of selfies.
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without mention of Buckingham Palace. Home to the Queen and the royal family, the Palace is one of London’s most iconic buildings. You can pose right outside the front gates, take a few step backs to get the whole building into shot, or seek out a member of the Queen’s Guard for a quick selfie.
