Details

Wildwood is offering the opportunity to take close-up photos of our animals with our resident photographer Dave Butcher. You can see some of Dave's photos in our restaurant and gift shop.

Photographer of all skills levels will have the chance to get close to and photograph British animals, with Dave on hand to give help and advice on how to get those special shots. Different animals will be photographed across the day, with animal feeds from the more elusive animals to help you get close views.
