So you make yourself out to be a budding photographer?

Here are 5 places to take great photos from whilst at Aston (and in Brum)


1. Main Building, 7th Floor

One of the easiest places to get to, simply take the Sky lift all the way up! From here you’ll get stunning views of all of Brum, including most of the city centre. 

2. On top of C4 (accommodation block)

One of the tallest buildings on campus provides one of the best views; views such as the BT Tower, the Bull Ring as well as most of campus. If you get access, be sure to check out the 17th floor!

3. The Garden on top of Birmingham Library

Heading over to Birmingham Library in the centre of Brum provides some epic views of the city. Be sure to check it out when going into the city.

4. Campus! (Especially Lakeside)

Campus itself has many mystical wonders which are waiting to be made into awesome photographs. The geese beside Lakeside is a good place to start!

5. Out your accommodation window (if you’re lucky)

Over the two years of being in Aston accommodation, I have been pretty blessed with great views of campus and the city. Even if your view is just of a hedge, usually being in a block in campus gives you access to a nice view point to take photos from. Explore, get out there and take great photos! I’d love to see what you come up with, or if any of them are better than my own (as shown in this post) 🙂
