From the name of this place you can tell what it will be like inside. There is luxury and grace everywhere, from head to toe. As soon as you step inside, you’ll want to take a picture from every angle so make sure you’ve got your glad rags on. It’s one of the most iconic hotels in London and just oozes elegance. With an incredible glass roof and tall towering palm trees just imagine the beauty at this time of year when everything is festively decorated.

Bristol is an Instagram haven with quirky shops and charming terraced houses everywhere you go. For both a romantic winter walk and for photographic evidence, the bird cage walk is fool-proof. Over the winter months you’ll be able to capture a beautifully eerie light with minimal distractions as not many people will be about, meaning you can take your time getting that flawless picture. After this why not take a stroll through Clifton and continue your shoot in this picturesque part of Bristol.

The Outhouse project has been created to give the public the chance to use walls as their canvas and showcase the incredible talent on their doorstep. The artwork gets updated every three months so you can keep your feed up to date with fresh art. The murals are always incredible, and the surrounding area is supported by local and independent businesses such as craft shops and soup kitchens so anyone can come and show their work. An incredible and inspiring project that should be shared on everyone’s social media.
