Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

The Giant’s Causeway is a coastal region filled with 40,000 basalt columns which at first glance appear as a man-made structure. But upon closer inspection, the beautiful stepping stones are actually interlocking columns that are the result of ancient volcanic eruptions more than 50 million years ago. This UNESCO site is a national treasure and a true scenic highlight if you’re visiting the northern coast of Northern Ireland.

Searcy’s at the Gherkin, London

If you’re on the lookout for cityscapes for your Instagram feed, then look no further than the Gherkin’s cocktail bar. From here, with a glass of bubbly in hand, you can overlook the whole of London for an incredible 360 views. It’s the perfect place to watch the sun go down over some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks too.

Mermaid Street, Rye

Situated in the charming and picturesque village of Rye in Sussex, Mermaid Street takes visitors back to a simpler age where the inns and homes of the 14thand 15thcenturies come to life. Rye is a truly delightful part of the country and has a wonderful ambiance as well as being one of the best locations for taking those all-important shots for the ‘gram.
