Photography Days are held when we are closed to the public. The combination of natural settings, a peaceful environment and small group sizes give you an unrivalled day of wildlife photography.

Photography Days at the British Wildlife Centre offer the amateur photographer special access to our mammals and owls. They are led by a member of our experienced keeper team who will present you with some of the very best British wildlife photo opportunities available.

We offer two types of photography day:

BWC Mammal Photography Days

These include a wide variety of mammals; badgers, red squirrels, polecats and more. The day features special access inside the fox, otter and Scottish wildcat enclosures. Places are limited to 12.

BWC Owl Photography Days

These feature six British owl species for you to photograph against the beautiful backdrop of our 16-acre nature reserve. You’ll have the opportunity to photograph owls on natural perches and some species in full flight (subject to weather conditions), in open fields and in woodland settings. Places are limited to 10.

For the latest list of dates please see the Photography Day Dates.

The format for both days is detailed on the Photography Day Itinerary.
