Magnolia in London, blooming magnolia in London. It has become synonymous with beauty and Instagram craze. Everyone’s feeds turn flowery, pale pink during the start of spring. I get so many questions about locations and advice of finding these beautiful trees that I decided to create and share this guide with you – the Instagram magnolia trail of London.

I have been thinking loads about publishing guides of magnolia, wisteria and blooms. It is a controversial topic within the Insta community – should we share all these spots or should we keep them to ourselves (channeling Lord of the Rings: preciouuussss). However, I recently visited Amsterdam and thought – I only have 3 days, and not enough time to explore every single corner, so wouldn’t it be good to know some of those pretty spots, I can go and admire or snap? Also, art and creativity is about sharing.

So here it is my dears, a guide to the blooming magnolia trees in West London. I hope when you visit next spring, you can go and admire these beauties. Obviously not an exhaustive list but it is the ones I have met through the years. I am just providing the name of the roads they live on, and a visual reference, you can take a walkΒ  and discover them.

A note: please do not disturb the residents of the area or be intrusive to their homes. They have created something beautiful for us to admire not to impose.
