Default London tips

Hello,
I'll be in London from 16 to 23 of September and I was wondering if someone could give me some tips about nice places, not the very touristic ones :), in the city to shoot and to spend some time.
Thanks,
Aida

Now that's great timing! London Open House is on right in the middle of that timespan. I strongly recommend you have a look through the list and see what piques your interest; many of the places aren't accessible to the public at any other time of year. Have a great trip :)

The tube, Camden Markets, entrance of the British Museum, Picadilly Circus, Walthamstow Greyhounds, Trafalgar Square when theres events on, Southbank (particularly the skate park) were all good to me for photos.

Hi Adrian,
Thanks for your tips. The London Open House site you sent is fantastic, I love architecture and that idea is very interesting, but it's difficult just to choose some of them :)
Thanks,
Aida

If you like plants and nature, how about a trip to SW London to the
Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. And from there to <a href="
http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/richmond_park/">Richmond Park</a>.

Feel free to contact me if you need any advise about these places as they are local to me.

Have fun! Casper

I don't think I posted the link correctly for Richmond Park - try this instead:
http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/richmond_park/

Just noticed the park has an open day on the 21st September:

All the best, Casper
