The best London Hashtags for killer reach (2023)

Are you traveling to London and want some great London Hashtags? It is one of our favourite places to explore and very Instagrammable!

Despite visiting an amazing and incredibly instagrammable city, were unsure of what hashtags to use.

If you are in the same situation, look no further, we have you covered with the best London hash tags for Instagram in 2022.

Hashtags are a super useful way to grow your instagram account. This is one way we grew our account to over 100k followers. If you want help with hashtags, this book provides some assistance.

Best London Hash tags for Instagram

If you don’t want your pictures to sink into the black hole of Instagram (aka terrible reach) it is necessary to use the right hashtags.

Are Hashtags on Instagram important?

Hash tags are still a great method to gain new followers as more reach = more eyes on your profile, more followers and Instagram Superstardom!

If only if were that simple! But we can tell you it will help and if it will help then why not? You can use up to 30 Hash Tags according to Instagram terms and conditions.

Whether you should use 30 or less is a topic highly debated amongst influencers.

Some influencers really believe in using every hash tag available while others believe this strategy is a sure fire way to the dreaded shadow ban aka nobody seeing any of your posts due to a punishment of Instagram.

Basically what it means is that you are in Instagram jail. We have done some time in Instagram jail (for lord knows why!) and as it is NOT fun we would suggest using around 20 hash tags on our Instagram posts.

London Hashtags for Instagram

Which London hashtags you should use depends on two questions.

This is the same formula we use in our Couple Hashtags post.

If you are a travel couple like us you might like you check out the couple hashtags there.

Long story short, the first question is how many followers you have and the second is what is your engagement rate.

1. How many followers do you have?

How many followers do you have? This will answer the size of hash tag we can go after:

  • 0 – 20,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 10,000 tags
  • 20,000 – 40,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 50,000 tags
  • 50,000 – 100,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 100,000 tags
  • 100,000 – 300,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 300,000 tags
  • 300,000 + – Hit them big tags up!

2. What is your engagement rate?

This is an important question as if you have 60,000 followers but 0 engagement it will be impossible to appear in the 100,000 hash tags.

This is because appearing at the top of hash tag depends on how many followers like your post AND how fast they do so.

Do a little self evaluation on your own engagement and work out if you need to go for less competitive hash tags than the above suggested.

Should I do London hashtags alone?

We believe you should mix London hash tags with other hash tags that are relevant to your picture.

Relevance here is key. Note: You should not hash tag #cutecats if there is no cat in your photo!

Use around 5-10 picture hash tags, 5-10 location hash tags and 5-10 action hash tags based on what you are doing.
