10 UK Instagram’s You Need to be Following
Where would we be without Instagram be to inspired, motivated and encouraged when it comes to popular lifestyles? It is crammed packed with creative, stunning images of everything from food to fashion and the best locations you need to book flights directly to.
I know that I personally use Instagram to keep up to date with the best up and coming destinations and hidden spots, fuelling my desire to explore even more and forever adding to my saved folder. Not to mention endless incredible fashion and lifestyle accounts.
Below I have compiled the best 10 UK Travel Instagram bloggers for the ultimate inspiring and useful content you need in your life.
1. Jack Morris - @Doyoutravel
You would have to have been living under a rock if you hadn’t heard of this guy and his incredible wanderlust travel account with a staggering 2.8 million followers. He didn't go to college, cleaned carpets for a living, lived out of a backpack for four years, until he met his partner Lauren Bullen (@Gypsea_lust) and made travelling his living.
His feed is filled with breath-taking destinations, which he says he finds via ‘word of mouth, Instagram, and research on Pinterest.’ The couple aims to travel to at least one new country every month (for pleasure; that's not counting work), which they select last-minute. Think luxury, paradise and tropical destinations. What a life!
2. Joe Wicks - @Thebodycoach
In the world of travel, health and fitness, Joe has fully steamed ahead taking social media by the helm and creating a new platform to educate people about how to get a lean, healthy strong body without having to go on crash diets. With over 2.4 million followers, 7 published cooking books and numerous publications in Men Fitness, Women’s Health, The Times and Cosmopolitan he certainly knows his stuff.
The reason why? Well he has a degree in Sports Science, 5 years’ experience of a personal trainer, 3 years as an Online Nutrition Coach, 100,00 client transformations and a 90-day plan with great success stories. The 30-year-old Londoner is now a legit online fitness guru - his social-media posts earning him legions of fans, who eagerly await his daily recipe and workout posts on Instagram from around the world which are certainly pleasing to the eye.
3. Milly - @Whats_Up_Beaches
Originally from Sheffield, UK Milly has accumulated a stunning gallery of her travels around the world and offering some superb travel inspiration. With a mixture of beautiful destinations such as Slovenia, Egypt, France, Greece and Italy there is a strong feel for Europe’s beauty which she manages to seek out and capture perfectly.
Add to this her fantastic eco-friendly fashion and lifestyle products, you can see why she has over 40 thousand followers. Check her out for eye-pleasing photos of her roaming around the world and enjoying the nomadic lifestyle which certainly suits her.
4. Ryan Domenico - @ryan_domenico
If you want adventure elopements, couple shots, weddings and stunning natural backdrops then you should definitely be following Ryan. Having come from Leeds, UK he ventured to Europe, Australia, South East Asia and finally Wellington, New Zealand with his partner Viktoria - @viktoirawanders.
If you have never thought of travelling to New Zealand, then I would highly suggest checking out his gallery for some incredible images to give you reason to go. Full of white topped mountains, crystal clear lakes, lush greenery and staggering waterfalls – what’s not to love?
5. Tran Nguyen - @Wanderluster_tran
Originally from Reading, UK Tran has travelled most of South East Asia, Australia, Hawaii, Fiji and resides in Auckland, New Zealand where she has lived for four years. Displaying vibrant dresses and fashion she creates the ultimate lifestyle while exploring deep blue lagoons, spectacular lighthouses, giant sand dunes and sheer cliff drops.
Travelling with her partner (@explorewithlee) they are brand ambassadors for Kathmandu amongst other brands and her gallery is nothing short of breath-taking. If you require daily wanderlust envy in your life, then I highly suggest following her beautiful Instagram and photos.
6. Jeremy Jauncey - @jeremyjauncey
This 32-year-old entrepreneur is not only a model but also a huge Insta-celebrity and founder/CEO of the widely popular Instagram Beautiful Destinations. With both accounts combined he has an impressive 12 million followers and has become a global name in travel.
The sheer popularity of Beautiful Destinations gained the attention of the respected men’s fashion and lifestyle brand ‘GQ’ where Jeremy has become part of their Insider program. This really is the ultimate travel and lifestyle inspiration for everyone and will leave you adding more countries to your bucket list.
7. Steph Edwards - @Thewannabevagabond
Having travelled across 11 countries and 3 continents, Steph certainly packs a punch with her travel images, displaying a vibrant lifestyle and some of the most delicious food shots I have ever seen. Hailing from the north of England you can really tell she has pure love for travelling with her fun personality pouring through in her captions and stories.
Her Instagram account really makes you want to quit your normal 9-5 job, pack a bag, book a flight and fly to that dream destination you have always wanted to visit but always put off. Check out her account for white sandy beaches, gorgeous temples, colourful fruit and some crazy high viewpoints.
8. Lee Scarratt - @Explorewithlee
Lee is a travel blogger from Reading, UK who is solely focussed on travel, unique experiences, delicious cuisine and stunning lifestyle content. His blog ‘Take the Leap Travel’ was created from the love of travelling the world and has so far travelled all over Europe, America, Africa, South East Asia, Fiji, Australia and finally settling in Auckland, New Zealand.
His Instagram showcases his adventures with his partner (@wanderluster_tran) with an aesthetic gallery of snow-capped mountains, effervescent sunsets, impenetrable green jungles and translucent blue ocean waters. From policeman to travel blogger this is one story worth following to help with those wanderlust blues.
9. Gigi Chierighini - @Pocketdiva
This travel duo consisting of Gigi and Dan (@salt_water_vibes) are a travel couple from Argentina and England that met in New Zealand nearly three years ago whilst travelling and continue to explore the world. Primarily through the use of their galleries and their blog – You, Me & the Sea, they document their travel experiences, photos and give people the opportunity to get travel tips and ideas on how to do the same thing.
I would highly suggest following them both for some awe-inspiring shots, beautiful colour themes and some fantastic couple shots that will certainly make you want to whisk your partner away with you to find these incredible destinations.
10. Phil Hadfield - @globe_drifting
For a remarkable story overcoming illness, taking the reins and steering yourself to a life you love, there is nothing quite like Phil’s. Originally from London, UK he discovered that he had picked up Lyme’s disease which pretty much disrupted his whole life and kept in him limbo for 3 years. After having enough, he ditched his job and took off to see the world.
His travelling is solely focused on destination hopping as well as fitness, clean-living, nutrition and clean-eating. Check out his Instagram and blog for some of the most stunning turquoise blue waters, white sandy beaches, tropical greenery and luxurious resorts.
