The London Night Time Photo Walk

London is a magical place after sunset with floodlit landmarks and towering office blocks. Learn how to get the best night time shots and get creative with long exposure photography, light trails and intentional camera movement. We start out walk at Wren's magnificent St Paul's and then make our way down to the River to capture London's skyline reflected in the Thames and many notable landmarks such as The Shard, the Millennium Bridge, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, St Katherine's Dock and the City of London. Time permitting we'll take a trip to Diagon Alley, The Gerkin and Lloyd's of London.

This is a great time to photograph the river as the bridges crossing the Thames are part of a long-term art installation “Illuminated River“: a scheme to light up 14 bridges of central London.

Our night time walk runs from December to the evening before the start of British Summer time (28th March 2021). Please note that due to the change in sunset times in Dec/Jan the start time will be 5pm and in Feb/Mar, 6pm.

Easy Access

Your London Night Time Photo Walk starts and ends at a convenient London underground station. We meet at St Paul's tube station on the Central line and end at Tower Hill (or Liverpool Street for those wishing to do the extension). Please note there are several flights of steps on the walk.

What to Bring

Your camera (mobile phones are capable of some great night time photos) with a wide angle to medium telephoto would be a good choice. A tripod is pretty essential (I will have a couple for you to use). Other useful items are a lens hood and if your camera doesn't have a self timer a shutter cable release. Oh and warm clothing!
