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. Photographers of all skill 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 for the more elusive animals to help you get close views.


“Had a great, informative and enjoyable day – which will be repeated – Thank you!” 
“Would love to come back and would recommend to friends!” 
“Dave was very helpful all day and very sensitive to the animal’s needs as well as our own. The day went too quickly – I wish I could do it everyday” 
“Dave was a great help with setting up shots. Would definitely do this again”
