Always see someone painting here as its under cover pedestrian only tunnel - trains go over head - the whole tunnel is free for all for graffiti artists - the biggest legal wall in London. It can be quite dark so you will need to use high ISO or long exposure.

The Elizabeth Tower (or Big Ben as its usually mistakenly called - Big Ben is the name of the greta bell) is a world famous landmark that makes a great focal point for shooting.

It may be one of the most photographed landmarks in the world, but its for a good reason. There are some great shots to be had of Tower Bridge and the surrounding area.

The Queens house is just one of the buildings worth a visit in Greenwich. The Tulip staircase is a wrought iron stair case accessible by climbing one level up. You can take photos but not using a tripod. Entry is free.

Beautiful building - lovely wide angle or fish eye shots in the interior especially taken in  the main hall from the steps.

I have visited this location on two occasions, checking the tide timetable being essential, remember the tidal range 5-7m!

The sleek tower blocks of London's Canary Wharf dominate the city's skyline and include one of Britain's tallest buildings, One Canada Square. Whilst there are many viewpoints of them around London, this location is one of the better ones.

Piccadilly Circus is always a hive of activity, this presents the photographer with the unique challenge of how to successfully capture these transient movements. For me I used a long exposure technique to convey movement of both people and traffic in the image.
