Reconnect with nature

The fifty-sixth Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will immerse you in the breathtaking diversity of the natural world.

Explore some of the world's richest habitats, see fascinating animal behaviour and get to know some extraordinary species.

Go deeper and discover the surprising - and often challenging - stories behind the images during a time of environmental crisis.

Each image has been selected by a panel of international experts and showcases some of the best wildlife photography in the world.

The exhibition encourages visitors to foster a personal connection with the world around them.

If you missed this year's awards ceremony you can catch up now and watch as the winners are announced.
