As the evenings are getting longer and temperatures are on the rise here in London, I have compiled a list of the best spots to enjoy the sunset or simply take in panorama views of the whole city. All these pictures have been taken myself whilst going around London. Enjoy!
Surrounded by beautiful cafes and in close proximity to the London Zoo, this hill to the north of Regent’s Park has often been named the most beautiful viewpoint in North London. Don’t forget to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the view!
As one of the world’s most famous Ferris wheels and with over 3.75 million visitors annually, the London Eye is an obvious choice for all those seeking a great view! 135m above the Thames, it offers 360-degree views of some of the most iconic London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament.
The top of the hill in Greenwich Park offers unparalleled views down to the Royal Naval College and across the Thames.
For anyone in search of a more daring experience, I recommend a visit to the Emirates Airline, a cable car link across the River Thames. The trip takes around 10 minutes and offers impressive views of the O2 and Canary Wharf. You can even use your Oyster card to pay for the trip.
Located close to Monument station, this public space offers a 360-degree view of London. Entry to the Sky Garden is free, but it is advisable to book your visit in advance to avoid the queues.
Similar to Primrose Hill, this natural haven in the south-east corner of Hampstead Heath is a popular viewpoint among tourists and locals alike.
If you’d like to sit back and enjoy a drink with a view, you should pay a visit to Madison this summer. This rooftop terrace bar is located at the top of the One New Change shopping complex and provides a great view of St Paul’s Cathedral as well as a laid-back atmosphere, perfect for a cocktail in the afternoon sunshine.
I hope you enjoyed my pictures!
