Things to do and Places to go that Work Well for Selfies

Lots of places work really well for selfies, especially if you have one of those selfie sticks to hand! At Treasure Trails we make sure that the majority of our Trail routes go past highly suitable statues and fantastic views and there are still plenty of stocks around for a fun photo. 

We’ve had a chat with our partners and come up with a list of fun places to go and things to do if you want a stand out selfie!

With so many to choose from it is very difficult but for iconic scenery we’ve picked one in the Isle of Wight. The Needles are rated in the top 10 of English views. This walk takes in the best views from Alum Bay, famous for its coloured sands and the chalk downs above. Not only do you have fantastic vistas, you also visit the top secret missile testing site, the Needles Park and Alum Bay beach. We have Trails in many of the other top 10 places mentioned too including Kenilworth, Chester, York and Framlingham.

Things to do and Places to go that Work Well for Selfies - Dick Whittington

Perhaps though you want something a little closer to home! In London there are masses to pick from but we’ve chosen The Ghost of Dick Whittington. The Trail leads from the burial place of Richard Whittington near Mansion House to City Hall, office of the current Mayor of London and passes really iconic sights such as the Tower of London. The route crosses Tower Bridge, with views of the Shard and other famous London landmarks.  Plenty of selfie inspiration!

Or how about heading to Rochester in Kent with its amazing castle and view over the Medway. You will be sure to find a great selfie spot here whilst you learn all about Dickens.  Rochester was famously loved by Charles Dickens, who spent his early, formative years in Chatham before settling down in later life at nearby Gad's Hill. The buildings and landmarks of Rochester served as his inspiration.

Things to do and Places to go that Work Well for Selfies - Lulworth Cove

Head south to Lulworth Cove with its fantastic views of the Jurassic Coast, 95 miles of stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset, with rock formations which go back 185 million years of the earths history. There is bound to be the perfect selfie spot there!

Talking of ancient times, you could try The Land of the Manifold Trail which has a 10 foot tall dinosaur looking over a garden wall and would make a brilliant selfie shot. 

Some of the best selfies are those taken next to a famous person and there are lots of those all around the UK!  From Lands End all the way to Scotland and back down south again to Great Yarmouth, we guarantee you will find a great place for a selfie!
