‘Your favourite view’ was a photography competition we ran to discover entrants’ favourite views in London, and the story behind why they valued these views the most.
Take a look at the excellent entries below!
This was taken from London Bridge. The Tower bridge has always fascinated me. Its beautiful in the day light and colourful at night. No mater how many new building are built around the bank of Thames, they will never out shine the Tower Bridge.
Situated on the west coast, Peel Castle has seen centuries of sunsets. No two are the same. There is a bench on the hill in front of the castle where you can sit and enjoy whatever the weather decides to send as a backdrop for the castle that day.
Worbarrow Bay, Dorset is my favourite view because it is one of the very few unspoilt and un-commercialised bays in the South of England. No cars, no ice cream vans.
This was taken from the top of Greenwich Park, next to the Royal Observatory. I love this view because the skyline embodies LONDON and everything I love about it. Each building has memories I have enjoyed with family...Viewing at the top of the Shard with my wife and daughter, dating my wife at the Gherkin, my daughter's first movie at the O2! London has everything for everyone and that's why I love it.
Salcombe- part of the UK with this beautiful view. Such scenery always makes so happy I want to shout ‘Woo woo!’
This picture was taken in St Margarita in Italy. It was such a beautiful place and looked like it was taken you back to the yester years.
My favourite view is Old Harry Rocks, which is part of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. It looks like a jigsaw puzzle and reminds me of home.
This photo means so much to me, because after several years of difficulty walking due to a number of health problems, this week I finally felt well enough to join my friend on a visit to Greenwich Village, where we had a lovely walk around the park and climbed the hill in order to enjoy this breath-taking view of London.
My favourite view has to be of the South West Coast Path, with this particular view near Clovelly in Devon capturing both the beauty and the wildness of the British coastline.
A young couple pictured a few weeks before their wedding at this beautiful venue. It’s the start of a journey - what will the future hold?
London - Running water signifies the flow of life
This is from the top of Tintagel it’s so peaceful and you can see for miles
View from our hotel in Corfu when we got engaged
This is the view of Dubrovnik Old Town. I had no idea this would be my first view of it until I walked up to the wall of the viewing platform overlooking it. Fair to say it took my breath away.
A spectacular view from Orrest Head of Lake Windermere in the Lake Distric is breath taking!!! Its awesome and so peaceful.....
I'm a wheelchair user and my favourite view is the Troudos Mountains in Cyprus and the waterfalls. It takes a mighty effort to get there. I caught sight of my little feet in the picture I thought spoilt the wonderful scenery... But then I thought 'no! It says I made it'. I look at this view and the thunderous sound of the water comes back to mind and the how magnificent the and majestic the scenery was. Picture Memories for life!
This photo is taken at Niagara Falls. It reminds me of warm weather, good food and most importantly, family reunions!
It came as a surprise! I was flying from East Java to Bali when I spotted this stunning view of this volcano appearing through the clouds.
This is the small village on the banks of Loch Fyne in the west of Scotland where I spent my childhood days - this is Cairndow. I use this as my screensaver so I can remind myself of my favourite place in the world every day!
My local harbour overlooking the English Channel. It’s beautiful on a Summers day, and makes me appreciate my hometown even more!
The beautiful beach of Cala Galdana, Menorca. A destination I’ve been going to with my family for many years and this year I was lucky enough to have my boyfriend with us too. A destination and view that will always be special to me!
Tanzanian Safari ❤️ We saved up a long time to go on this holiday of a lifetime and saw all the animals we hoped for.

The most special day in Santorini celebrating the marriage of a very close friend
This was taken at HunstantonMy Auntie & cousin took me there for the day as I had never been there and Wow, we were b,Essex with fantastic weather, lovely people, scenery, seaside, shops, and we went to the Lavender Fields before making our way to Hunstanton and we found a lovely cafe where this photo was taken overlooking the water, what a end to a truly happy, anxious and panic free day for me so lucky,

The jodhpur fort in india , beautiful place to be.
I will never grow tired of the New York skyline - been twice & planning my next trip!
Kynance cove, Cornwall, time spent with special friends enjoying the beauty of our country
A beautiful view of the Causeway linking St. Lucia to Pigeon Island. As St. Lucia has the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, this is where you can see both the Caribbean which is calm and the Atlantic which can be quite rough. This island has so much history having been fought over by the French and English. It is also beautiful to look at and calming
Because it encompasses everything that is brilliant, breathtaking and wonderful about the Big Apple. New York was always my dream place to go, so to take this picture meant the world to me
The Bean in Chicago - the reflection is the perfect view of the city.
I love London, this is so iconic it is London all over.
This is a view overlooking County Donegal, Ireland. A place where our entire family meets year after year to spend a week of fun.
This view means the world to me, it' a place I could rarely be. I worked far away for Queen and country, with an aching heart for my home county. Seven long years to come home and see, the sun the sand the crashing sea. And now back here I will never leave, Northumberland is in my soul it is the air I breath.
The Mexico City skyline. It was my first time in South America, I was travelling alone and just reminds me how kind strangers can be. Also, it made me realise how much I missed my partner and now we are getting married.
Pico do arierio Madeira this makes me feel like I’m on top on the earth above the clouds and the views are amazing. The air is fresh and clam.
The view of the Tower Of London - I love that kings and queens have seen the same landmark and that it’s enriched in history.
Durdle door in dorset
This was actually taken at The View from The Shard when it first opened. I've lived in London my entire life and beyond it being one of the top cities of the world, It's also my home. I'd love to go back to The Shard!
This is were I live this is home
This was taken on a family holiday to Canada, at Lake Louise. It is my favourite view because that morning it was so quiet around the lake and I swam in the lake, which despite it being only four degrees warm, was a memory I will never forget.
This photo was taken in Bath. I used to go to school here - spent many years in the city. It holds many, wonderful happy memories of years' gone by.
Beautiful scenery and reminds of a wonderful holiday on the Norfolk Broads.
The English Lake District National Park, tree-covered, mountainous views are nothing short of magical in the autumn and winter months. It's a view that always gets me outdoors even when the weather isn't at it's finest.
This was the view from our room at the Shangri La Boracay. I will never forget this moment on our perfect honeymoon 3 years ago! I would love to take my huband to the Shard for our 4th Anniversary on 29th August.
Iguacu Falls in Brazil. I was so thrilled, loved it so much, had to be dragged away from the spectacular views.
This is the Castle we got married and my husband live in this town for long time. We have great memories here.
The shard at sunrise. It really catches the light
My favourite view is the Mediterranean sea from a beach in Cyprus because it makes me feel like home wherever I am in the world.
