For Anglophiles around the world, images of London and England make fantastic collectables. Whether photos of landmarks or decorative art prints, there’s no shortage of iconic imagery to collect and enjoy.
There’s something extraordinary about London. It’s an iconic city with a long history, a rich tapestry of stories, and a vibrant modern cultural scene. Millions of people visit every year, and for most visitors, the English capital leaves a positive impression they never entirely forget.
London scenes for anglophiles worldwide
London, together with the likes of New and Paris, is one of the most well-known cities in the world. The famous London landmarks of Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Downing Street, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, and the distinctive red double-decker buses, are known by everyone.
The landmarks regularly feature in films, artwork, news stories, BBC comedies, literature, music videos, and even in fashion. They have become design icons in themselves and are widely printed onto decorative objects, clothing, and souvenirs.
For any Anglophile collector of British imagery, London provides a stunning array of subjects, themes, and decorative potential.
Art prints for every London landmark
As well as the famous landmarks mentioned above, there are also many hundreds more.
For Anglophile movie fans, certain places will be instantly recognizable. These locations include Borough Market (Bridget Jones’s Diary), St Paul’s Cathedral (Mary Poppins), and Kings Cross station (Harry Potter).
And other places have familiar names related to London scenes in literature, including from novels by the likes of Arthur Conan Doyle (Baker Street), Monica Ali (Brick Lane), and Ian McEwan (Fitzrovia).
Then, of course, there are smaller and more personal landmarks, based around chance meetings or fond memories. These include tube stations, city parks, river walks, bars, cafes, markets, and even bus routes, amongst thousands of other possibilities.
Placement in the home
London art prints have the potential to look good in any room in the home. They can be matched with a vast array of décor themes and colour schemes. As such, they’ll present British-centric highlights in all the right places.
For example, a photographic wall canvas print can be the main focal feature above a fireplace in a living room or on the largest wall in an open-plan dining space.
Smaller prints, perhaps part of a series and hung together, can look lovely in a bedroom or hallway.
Some children also develop a fondness for a foreign country, born from imagery in movies or stories (Sherlock Holmes, for example). Scenes of London, or England, can make delightful decorative additions to an Anglophile kid’s bedroom.
Placement in business interiors
Business interiors can also benefit from London photographic prints. Images of landmarks from the British capital can strengthen the brand identity of international companies that regularly do business in the UK.
For example, wall prints of the London skyline will look appropriate in travel-related company offices, anywhere in the world.
Plus, for anglophile small business owners, the imagery of London landmarks in an office has the potential to ignite conversations. A little personal chat about happy times living in London can strengthen the initial bond between a service provider and a client.
Ordering from anywhere
As a professional photographer, currently based in London, a great many of the photos I take centre around this beautiful and diverse city. You can see a selection of these London wall prints in my online store.
But if you don’t see a location you really want, then hang on a moment.
I regularly take bespoke photographs for clients worldwide who want a fine art print of a particular location in London. For example, a specific London street sign or tube station plaque, or the façade of a well-known store or museum.
I can photograph a London subject or scene, and create a unique, high-quality wall print, deliverable to anywhere in the world.
