London is an instagrammer’s dream all year round and autumn is no exception. In fact, autumn is one of my favourite seasons to explore the capital! All the beautiful ivy-covered walls suddenly turn into spectacular orange and red displays and the parks in the city become full of fall foliage. Here is my round up of the most beautiful places in London in autumn!
Before I went to Leeds, I was asked what I knew about the city already and what my expectations were. I'm pretty sure the Yorkshire Evening Post didn't want to hear "it's somewhere in Yorkshire and they talk funny?" but that was pretty much my main knowledge of the city. Yes, Leeds is in Yorkshire (specifically the West Riding of Yorkshire) and still to my southern ears they speak pretty darn differently (as stereotypes go, us southerners are known for taking the mick out of those from the north) but now I am already planning a return to photograph more of the most instagrammable places in Leeds!While best known for its role in the Industrial Revolution, Leeds has much more than industrial buildings to show for itself - from craft coffee to amazing cocktails and from spectacular architecture to amazing market halls, Leeds really does have something for everyone. I have rounded up my top recommendations for instagrammable spots in Leeds, including bars, restaurants and shopping malls!
One of my favourite cities in the UK (and one that I lived in for around five years) is the wonderful city of Bath. I have always been a city girl at heart and the thing I love about Bath is that it's all so walkable - when you are looking for a luxury hotel in Bath you want something that's easy access to the best attractions as well as peaceful at night. No 15 Great Pulteney is a wonderful boutique hotel in Bath located on the picturesque Great Pulteney Street.
A visit to the Cotswolds feels like travelling back in time - quaint villages with thatched cottages will capture your heart and countryside pubs will make you want to just move in straight away. After a road trip there earlier this month, I have compiled a list of the best Cotswolds villages you must visit!The Cotswolds is wonderfully picturesque and this list could easily go on forever, but I have chosen my absolute favourites. You could easily spend two weeks or more visiting one beautiful village after another, but for a perfect few days in the region, these are my top recommendations. Here are the prettiest Cotswolds villages that you can't miss:
What do you think of when you think of the city of Bath? Most people think of the Roman baths, beautiful Pulteney bridge and the Royal Crescent. Many people would think of Jane Austen and the Georgian architecture of the city. However, there is much more to Bath that this - after five years of living in the city I feel I can say that, with 100% certainty, there is something in Bath for everyone! If you are looking for the less 'run of the mill' activities and instead the more unusual things to do in Bath, then look no further. From brewery tours to stand-up paddleboarding on the River Avon, you are sure to find something to enjoy!
The wonderful island of Guernsey - not part of the United Kingdom (but still the British Isles), closer to France than the UK and recently made much more well-known thanks to the novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society! With Condor Ferries you can travel to the beautiful island of Guernsey in less than three hours - perfect for exploring the island by foot or by car. If you are looking for a perfect Guernsey day trip itinerary, then look no further!Disclaimer: I recently travelled to Guernsey as a paid partnership with Condor Ferries.

The resounding question that I've been asked when I said I had just got back from Sweden was, "oh, did you go to Stockholm?"No! (Although I have been to Stockholm before.) There is more to Sweden than just Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden's second-largest city, is definitely a place that deserves more visitors!Gothenburg, or Göteborg (yur-te-borry) in Swedish, is a city of delicious food, buzzing café culture and a love of microbreweries and craft beer. While not as "glamorous" as it's big sister Stockholm, the industrial port city of Gothenburg is definitely a place that a visitor to Sweden shouldn't miss.
London is truly an Instagrammer's dream destination - instagrammable cafés, insta-worthy facades and colourful houses decorate the feeds of London-based influencers and travel bloggers visiting the British capital.Rain or shine (and, let's face it, it's usually raining), the city can inspire any photographer. Here are some of the most instagrammable places in London for getting that shot for the 'gram!
