Does London have the best lockdown view in the UK?


With the majority of the UK now working from home the change in circumstances has meant that we’re all appreciating the little things in life a bit more, including the view from our windows, with many people taking to Instagram to share some of their picturesque backdrops.

The hashtag #viewfrommywindow has seen over 345,00 uses on Instagram, with #windowview also seeing over 887,000 uses and #viewfromhome seeing over 76,000.

To celebrate some of the fantastic lockdown landscapes, online blinds retailer 247 Blinds has been analysing Instagram content to find some of the most beautiful views across the country and has picked out some of its favourites.

It’s not just window views that people are appreciating at the moment either, it seems the UK is embracing all that nature has to offer, with Google search trends showing that the term ‘walking routes near me’ has seen a sudden spike in popularity over recent weeks, with so many people looking for hidden gems in their neighbourhood.

Below are some of the stunning window views from across the UK but 247 Blinds is calling for people in London to share their lockdown landscape as part of its ‘Best View’ competition to be in with a chance of winning a voucher worth £150 to spend on the website, to make your beautiful view stand out even more.
