England - London, Oxford, Bath, Brighton
Finally got a chance to go through all of my photography from my recent travel photography adventure in England.
England is such a magical place and I can only hope that I will explore more of the United Kingdom at some point.
Curious about viewing all of my photos? Here is an album’s worth:
(you can tap or click on each photo to view larger which is always recommended)
Here is a little compilation :):
This is Leadenhall Market in London. It is a covered market that dates back to the 14th century.
But you may recognize it as where the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron is in the first Harry Potter film since this is where that was filmed!
I spent a good amount of time on foot in London exploring various alleys and mews…
Both of these alleys happen to have establishments that date back to the 1600s which are still in use today.
My photography was also on display at Somerset House in London (. Somerset House was stunning on a rainy day…
I managed to pry myself away from London a few times to take the train to visit various cities like Oxford…
Bath, the city of Jane Austen, is also the home to Roman Baths that date back to AD 60 as well an abbey whose restoration dates back to the 12th and 16th centuries…
In between these day trips, I fell in love with Shoreditch where I stayed in a pretty incredible apartment via AirBNB.
The street art in Shoreditch is ridiculously amazing…
There was a visit to the historic Dennis Severs house that took my breath away as it was one of the most unique places I have visited…
And I managed to go on a Jack the Ripper tour that took me into parts of Shoreditch in the evening that made me feel as if I was in another time entirely..
I also managed to visit all the key touristy spots too like the Tower of London where I took this photo of Tower Bridge from a window Medieval Palace…
and the Thames across from Big Ben at sunset…
And I will never ever forget the kindness extended to me by who graciously invited me to afternoon tea and to take photos of London at night.
This is a view of Tower Bridge and the HMS Belfast from high above London.
There are more photos. This was just a brief compilation. The rest are here:
Hope you enjoy!
And make sure to for everything having to do with traveling in England (and the United Kingdom!)

Bath is a city in South West England known by many as the city and spa resort that Jane Austen wrote about in her novels.
However, the city is also a World Heritage Site as its baths date back in (known) history to AD 50 when the Romans built baths and a temple on the site.
The bath in the photo above is part of a geothermal spring and its hot water (46 degrees Celsius and 115 degrees Fahrenheit) rises here daily as it has since the Romans built their temple on this site over 1000 years ago.
The Bath springs are the only hot springs of its kind in the United Kingdom.
In Jane Austen’s time period during the18th century, Bath was a popular resort destination where people would come to “take the waters”.
It’s such a stunning travel destination in this day and age with amazing architecture, history, and geography.
