    Great places to shoot in London? I will there next week for business but will have some free time. Thanks for your help. phranc
  2. Hi Phrank,

    Tower of London - We were there when it opened and went straight to the crown jewels treasury. We were the only two in that building and they had not turned on the moving sidewalk yet so you could really get a good look. (no photos allowed inside treasury). Lots to photograph outside & other buildings in the Tower.

    Boat Ride down the Thames to Greenwich. Tour observatory and ride back. (half a day)

    Grey Line has an all day tour to Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace.

    Grey Line also has a half day tour to Leeds Castle. Very photogenic!

    I need to upload some photos to post for you.

    There tons of great places in London as bobhoge states...

    You could also look for some locations just outside of London if you have time.

    Of course, if Elizabeth Hurley is in town, well...

    Hmm, can get some lovely night shots from the river. Perhaps if you can get a ticket on the London Eye at sunset on a clear night that would be magical. I'd bring something to clean the glass tho.

    Alternatively you could try and get some early morning shots, air is usually clearer first thing in the morning. Perhaps trying to capture all the bleary eyed people getting to work?

    Covent garden has some interesting street performances which can get good shots.

    There's loads to see, how much free time do you have?

  6. In addition I would suggest:

    Big Ben at night (and Day) right next to the london eye and the parliament.

    highgate cemetary

    camden lock market

    pettycoatlane market

    shakespears globetheatre (make the tour!)

    the brigde next to the globe (don`t know the name?)

    london zoo (take a river tour an the canals to the zoo, or further to camden!)

    house of sherlock holmes

    london dungeon (very dark there!)

    make shure to include some shots in a Pub at night (great interior)


    well I get carried away.........

    maybe a vacation to london would suit myself right now!

    enjoy your stay!
