The photo can be taken from a walkway set high up above Hintze Hall, from where the photographer gazes down not just at a beautiful room surrounded by myriad stone archways and stained-glass windows, but also at the full length of the museum’s famous skeleton of a blue whale that hangs from the ceiling.
Arrive at the right time – around twilight on a sunny day – and the colours are incredible, the photo iconic.
Address: Cromwell Road, SW7
We finish with absolute Kensington perfection, the sort of location only London, and only this part of London, charming and historic, could give you: Kynance Mews.
Five minutes’ walk north of Fraser Suites Kensington, Kynance Mews is a slice of utterly gorgeous Instagram fodder, a narrow, cobbled lane with ivy-covered stone archways at either end.
