Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


From the 19th to the 21st of May, Somerset House will host the second annual Photo London event, where photographers from all over the world will show their collections. Architecture inspires us all and is often the subject of superb photography, so we’d like to share some of the London’s stand out properties and their awe inspiring settings.

The Heron
3 bed flat, Moor Lane, EC2 £2,500 per week

The Heron, Moor Lane, EC2

If a property is located in a high-end development such at The Heron, which takes its position in the heart of the City, it needs to be pretty spectacular. This three bedroom apartment is not only worthy of any photo exhibition, but the London skyline views the apartment offers are so impressive they could easily be a contender for any ‘photo of the year’ competition.

Rental price: £2,500 per week. Contact our City branch for more information.

East Heath Road, Hampstead, NW3

East Heath, NW3
3 bed flat, East Heath Road, NW3 £1,595 per week

Hampstead is a popular area with photographers, thanks to its cobbled streets, period architecture and the open spaces of Hampstead Heath. It is often used for many wide-angle imagery and close-up shots which capture its essence. This four bedroom apartment on East Heath Road is a photo-quality property with a classic style. The reception room particularly impresses: a feature fireplace, bay windows and a centrepiece chandelier highlight the charm and character of the room, and the area of Hampstead.

Rental price: £1,595 per week. For more information on this property and other Hampstead properties, contact our Hampstead branch.

Green Street, Mayfair
2 bed flat, Green Street, W1 £1,800 per week

Green Street, Mayfair, W1

This two bedroom apartment offers a modern design behind the façade of a period building. Set in the heart of Mayfair, the property is definitely worthy of a photographer’s camera. But what makes the apartment so picture perfect? Look no further than the master bedroom, where skirting lights enhance the bedding area, and the black-painted mirrored wardrobes blend seamlessly with the oak hardwood flooring.

Rental price: £1,850 per week. Contact our Hyde Park branch for more information.

Lensbury Avenue, Imperial Wharf, SW6

3 bed flat, Imperial Wharf, SW6 £1,550 per week

Located moments from the King’s Road and Fulham, it is no surprise this three bedroom apartment is oozing with style. The property is situated at the Imperial Wharf development and has been interior-designed with oak doors, wood flooring, contemporary furniture and spotlights in the ceilings.  However, the wow factor this property offers has to be the spectacular views of the River Thames seen from the reception room. Don’t be surprised if photographers are knocking on your door asking if they can feature the apartment in high-end property brochures.

Rental price: £1,550 per week. Contact our Fulham branch for more information.

Carlingford Road, Hampstead
3 bed flat, Carlingford Road, NW3 £1,250 per week

Carlingford Road, Hampstead, NW3

We are back in Hampstead, this time for a quirky three bedroom apartment which is full of colour and life. Not only would this property look good in any photography magazine, but it would be perfect for a movie set, preferably an Art House movie. The brightly-toned wallpaper, together with the clever use of wood furniture and flooring, gives the double-aspect reception room real charm.

Rental price: £1,250 per week. Contact one of the negotiators at our Hampstead branch for more information.

These are just a selection of the properties we have that would be worthy of any photography award.
