Northern England In 20 Photos: My Instagram Experience

Instagram is one of my favorite ways to share photos while I am traveling. It’s amazing what my IPhone can capture. In fact, there are times when I feel like my IPhone does a better job than my DSLR.

While I was sorting through my photos from Nikon, I took a look back on my Instagram feed to see what I had shared and thought it told a fun story about my experience traveling in Northern England.

A common comment I received after returning and sharing some of my initial thoughts from my trip was that so many haven’t taken the time to visit Northern England. I even heard this from people who live in or grew up in or near London. I hope these photos inspire you to consider visiting Northern England the next time you visit Europe.

  1. What a beautiful collection of shots! I really want to visit Lancaster Castle! It looks amazing and exactly what I expect of an old British castle.

  2. All the pictures bring alive the natural beauty and elegance of Northern England. They capture the spectacular countryside along with the rich heritage and culture of England.

  3. A lovely collection of images. You did a great job capturing the charm of the countryside.

  4. Your pictures definitely do Northern England justice. My favorites are the castles (of course, Alnwick is my fave) and the pubs. Nothing like a British pub experience.

  5. That is a beautiful journey and so well captured. I should try a similar post :D. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. What a great trip. I would love to visit Lancaster Castle and Durham looks like a great place to explore.

  7. Hi Alexa, I have to agree with you — some of my favorite photos from my trips are also taken by my iPhone and not so much my DSLR! Theses photos are incredible, they capture the essence of England and the one that I imagine when I read my period books. Beautiful photos!

  8. So all these photos were taken on your iPhone? I’m impressed. Your photo essay is quite beautiful. The photos I take with my iPhone are hardly worth keeping because the quality is so bad…

  9. I’m bummed I only got a couple days in London and no time to explore the rest of England!

  10. That’s always the case that locals and those not too far away rarely experience what’s on their own doorstep. I loved your picture of Hadrian’s wall. If those stones could speak 🙂

  11. And this is why I love most about Europe. I would probably spend a couple of hours just being mesmerized at one sight to another especially with historical thrills like the Lancaster Castle. That narrow walkway couldn’t be a more classy place, I’m always at awe whenever people can cramp so much vibe into a small area.

  12. I haven’t explored much of England outside of London. Northern England looks lovely and would be worth a few days of exploring. My kids would definitely enjoy the castles.

  13. Love your photos! I’ve been to England twice now but only ventured to London and Stonehenge. I’d love to go back and visit Northern England though. And it’s interesting that so many people from the country itself haven’t gone so far north. Many times we forget about what’s in our own back yard.

  14. I would love to see Hadrian’s Wall and my daughter wants to see Alnick Castle thanks to Harry Potter. I’m curious about the witches statue – something I’ll have to google.

  15. Hey,And this is why I love most about Europe. I would probably spend a couple of hours just being mesmerized at one sight to another especially with historical thrills like the Lancaster Castle. That narrow walkway couldn’t be a more classy place, I’m always at awe whenever people can cramp so much vibe into a small area.
