The Ouse Valley Viaduct is a most impressive location and very popular with the instagram selfie crowd for good reason - even on a gloomy afternoon it’s crazy architecture makes for a wicked shot. I can’t wait to get back there when the light is better later in the year.


3 - Dover Castle

Dover castle continues to be an amazing location for castle photography. The castle also poses a challenge due to its layout and size. In addition to the beautiful walls there are a number of attractions including the wartime tunnels and even a WW2 themed escape room!


4 - Canterbury Cathedral

The imposing twin towers of the medieval church at Reculver dominate the skyline of Herne Bay, acting as a navigation marker for ships at sea. This was the site of one of the earliest Roman forts built against Saxon raids on the 'Saxon Shore'. It later became the site of an Anglo-Saxon monastery before becoming the parish church for Reculver. The tall towers were built in a remodelling of the church in the 12th century ⛪️


6 - Scotney castle

Scotney Castle is an English country house with formal gardens south-east of Lamberhurst in the valley of the River Bewl in Kent, England. It belongs to the National Trust.


The gardens, which are a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a celebrated example of the Picturesque style, are also open to the public. The central feature is the ruins of a medieval, moated manor house, Scotney Old Castle, which is on an island on a small lake. The lake is surrounded by sloping, wooded gardens with fine collections of rhododendrons, azaleas and kalmia for spring colour, summer wisteria and roses, and spectacular autumn colour which makes for some amazing photos!
