Viewpoint Areas

Our photo location guidebooks cover various areas in the UK and in the near future will venture into Europe and beyond. Each area marked on the map below has featured viewpoints from our guide books. These are some of the best landscape photography spots, both well known and lesser known locations, that you may find useful – whether you are travelling to a new place or exploring deeper into your local area.

However we do not want to restrict ourselves just to our guidebooks and would like you to use this space to share your favourite photography locations and your great photos. You can contribute by adding a viewpoint anywhere in the world and help others find great photographic viewpoints.

This page of the fotoVUE will continuously develop revealing new photography locations.  You can get updated on new areas and locations by subscribing to our newsletter.
