The most Instagrammable places in the Southern UK

Recently voted the 2nd best country in the world by Lonely Planet, England has so much to offer as a holiday destination. Revel in its beauty with these breathtaking images......

Berry Head, Devon

To put it simply, the views of the English Riviera on offer at Berry Head are incredible! One snap here and your comments will be filled with “OMG 😍 where are you?!”

 

Torquay Marina, Devon

There’s no bad time of day to take a photo of the Marina. It looks beautiful in the morning, wonderful in the afternoon and romantic in the evening.

Take your Instagram game to the next level with a boat trip out to sea and capture a ships eye view of the port, or jump on the big wheel for a seagulls’ eye view of Torbay.

 

Durdle Door, Dorset

This natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast is one of Dorset's most photographed and iconic landmarks – and has been voted the UK’s most Instagrammable place to have a picnic.

Durdle Door has been the back drop for many Instagram influencers – human and canine – and is a must ‘snap’ on any trip to Dorset.

 

Sixpenny Handley, Dorset

An image of this barn in a sea of bright yellow rapeseed is something you’d probably expect to see at the movies, however, Sixpenny Handley has become a hotspot for travelling Instagrammers for its vibrant fields set against the contrasting blue summer sky.

No filter required!

 

West Mersea Beach Huts, Essex

The beautiful pastel coloured beach huts that line the West Mersea Beach are as popular today as there were in the 1920’s.

This might be one of the few beaches in the UK where scenic sea views aren’t front of mind, but rather second to the wooden wonders behind them.

Do it for the gram!

 

Frinton-on-Sea Beach, Essex

This picturesque sandy Blue Flag beach has Insta opportunity’s everywhere – you can’t really take a bad photo at Frinton Beach.

And to the rear of the beach is an extensive promenade which is lined with wonderfully coloured, old-fashioned beach huts.

 

Arundel Castle, West Sussex

You may want to free up some storage, you’re going to want to take A LOT of pictures!

There's nearly 1,000 years of history at this magnificent castle, which is situated on an outstanding estate overlooking the River Arun in West Sussex. Also, there’s opportunities to dress up in medieval costumes and sample a small piece of life in the 11th century.

A day out at Arundel Castle is bound to make it onto the highlight reel.

 

West Wittering Beach, Hampshire

This golden sanded Hampshire beach is ideal for a day at the beach and a day jam-packed with Instagram-worthy images.

And you won’t be limited to shots of footprints in the sand or waves washing over your feet as this is a hot spot for Kite surfing and windsurfing – now that is something you’ll want to see.

 

House in the Clouds (Thorpeness), Suffolk

It’s not often you get the chance to set your location as a ‘House in the Clouds’…

Opening its sky high doors back in 1923 as a water tower, the innovative design was created to disguise the water tank within, and therefore, keeping with Thorpeness's mock-Tudor and Jacobean style.

No longer in use a water tank, this 70 foot building became a Grade II listed building back in 1995.

 

The Scallop (Aldeburgh Beach), Suffolk

This 4 metre tall scallop was designed by local-born artist Maggi Hambling – estimated to have cost £75,000.

Dividing opinion, 'The Scallop' has drawn people from all over the UK to Aldeburgh Beach just to view the monument in person - before taking to Instagram to voice their thoughts.

Make the trip and see what side of the debate you fall!

 

Mermaid Street (Rye), Sussex

Attention all book lovers!

People are drawn to Mermaid Street for its delightful Georgian houses, pretty harbour and quirky shops. If you take a walk along the cobbled streets, which run steeply downhill with historic houses either side, you’re walking in author E. F. Benson’s fictional seaside town of “Tilling” aka Rye, from his Mapp and Lucia novel.

Live like the novel, come to Rye, and capture the magic.
