London looks particularly special at night time with its lights a-twinkling. Learn how to capture it perfectly with our London at Night Photography Tour. Part photography course, part London walking tour – it’s a wonderful combination.

Guided by a professional photographer, David, you’ll gain valuable night photography skills whilst discovering famous and lesser known spots in London. You’ll get expert advice on taking night photos and cityscapes. Then put your learnings into practice with stops at various iconic points along the River Thames, such as London Eye, The Shard, St Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge, Millennium Bridge and Tower Bridge.

David will show you some of the rich, lesser spotted details along the South Bank that result in creative night photography with light trails. You’ll discover the best vantage points for photos of landmarks along the River Thames like the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Bridge and the London Eye.

The night photography tour includes:

  • Up to 3 hour night photography tour in Central London
  • Expert advice on using your camera in low light
  • Use of selective focus for storytelling
  • Advice on cameras, lenses and equipment
  • Expert photography techniques
  • Capturing iconic landmarks
  • Learn to compose/frame a great photo.

This informative tour will help you to gain new photography skills. David can answer all your photography FAQs, from shutter speed to camera settings, light trails to long exposure and all sorts in between. Plus, he’ll share interesting tales about the locations you see along the way.

What happens in the evening?

On arrival at the Westminster tube meeting point, outside Caffe Nero, you’ll meet up with your guide and tutor and fellow tour members.

After a short introductory talk about camera basics, especially at night time, you’ll embark on a delightful journey through the City of London after sunset, where the cityscape transforms into a dazzling spectacle. As streetlights paint the skyline, iconic landmarks like the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Tower Bridge become beacons of nighttime elegance.

As night falls, add a touch of magic with Tower Bridge as a focal point, capturing the vibrant light trails of red double-decker buses passing through, heading into the bridge. The illuminated silhouette of St. Paul’s Cathedral completes the scene, making the city at night a visual symphony along the Thames, inviting you to paint the town with your lens!

Explore the vibrant energy of the streets, weaving through the glowing lines of towering structures. The tour takes around 3 hours and ends at Tower Bridge.

Whether you’re a beginner or more experienced at photography, you’ll gain insights and tips from our experienced photography tour guide. The tour’s suitable for users of all types of digital cameras – DSLRs, point & shoot and smartphones. We’ll also advise you on the best apps for smartphones too.

N.B. Between the photo locations (London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Tower Bridge) we will commute using the overground tube (district/circle line), to reduce the time for walking and have the extra time for photography.

Time and meeting point

    For our London trip we pre-booked this tour as my partner is a vivid photographer – as stated on the website all walks are 15 GBP pP, and the group has a limit of 12 people. At the meeting point we learned that the price is 45 GBP and the group was made up of 18 people.
    Regarding the price I have read then again the description of the tour and in the lengthy text it was stated somewhere that the price is 45 GBP – sorry to say that is rather misleading and hidden. Also the size of the group was in my opinion too big – further more there was no information that travel by tube was done which adds to the costs of the walk.

    Overall we got some nice viewpoints to take great pictures of the London eye, St. Paul’s and Tower Bridge but I think due to the size the “learning” side to the tour was rather difficult.
