The British Wildlife Centre is known for providing fabulous photographic conditions for shots that would take patience and lots of luck to achieve in the wild! Enthusiastic amateurs and professional photographers alike will find all they need to get the perfect wildlife image.

Photography Days

Our special Photography Days are held when we are closed to the public, offering the amateur photographer an opportunity to get really close to our animals.

Good vantage points combined with natural surroundings and a peaceful environment gives you every opportunity to achieve superb wildlife shots, and we can normally allow access inside some of the enclosures, including the foxes, otters and Scottish wildcats. more...
