Great Photo Spots in Northern England


My family visits the English Islands quite regularly – for my wife ist is actually „coming come“. We have been to Cornwall, Dorset, Wales (North), the Lake District, Scotland and Northumbria. It has always been an amazing experience with great landscapes and plenty of opportunities to follow the passion of photography.

After the pandemic, we had the chance to return just last year, travelling to the Lake District first and then spend another week at the coast of Northumbria.

In the Lake District we stayed near Ullswater Lake, a place already very well suited for nice pictures of a sunrise and tranquil reflections. But not only Ullswater is a good place to start, so is Buttermere Lake and all the other lakes around.

But not only the lakes are a great spot to make photographs, so is also the country, with high hills, plenty of water flowing and waterfalls all over the place.

Not far from the Lake District, just about a 2hrs ride by car, a very different landscape unfolds near Bamburgh in Northumberland. Her it is more the seaside with tides and lots of great light that makes the day.

Overall, if one is looking for great opportunities to take exciting landscape pictures, Northern England offers an abundance of opportunities.
