Showcasing the work of leading wildlife artist Robert E Fuller, this gallery is a must for anyone who loves the countryside. Mr Fuller spends months in the field watching and photographing wildlife and this depth of understanding makes his work sing out. Original oil paintings and bronze sculptures of wildlife all come to life through his inimtable, realistic style.

The gallery holds two exhibitions a year, at Christmas and during the summer. These usually involve falconry events for kids and nature tours so you can enjoy both the wildlife outside the gallery as well as the paintings of wildlife inside!

Coming Soon:

An exhibition on British Song Birds June 11-July 3rd. See paintings, join nature walks, and learn to understand the dawn chorus. Also taking place: falconry for kids and birdwatching for tots.

The fog was either an attraction that afternoon, converting the landscape into magical islands in the sea or a pain because it restricted visibility - but despite that it was a joy to be out in such a beautiful spot and see so many red kites in the same place. Not understanding their habits we hadn't realised that at this... More

Robert is a true wildlife enthusiast, passionate about his subject, both in delivering his talks and slideshows and in his art. His gallery makes you crave for more wall space at home and to be as equally talented with a camera. There is always a warm welcome here and it's always encouraging to know that any purchase, no matter how... More

The talk was excellent; highly entertaining, packed with astounding pictures of animals around the world doing what animals do naturally. His ability and dedication to capturing shots at their best, is only matched by his ability to paint and even sculpt them. Do visit the... More

We have visited the Robert Fuller Gallery for many years now and have bought a great collection of limited edition framed prints. The staff are very friendly and the gallery is worth a visit to experience the many aspects of local wildlife in painted picture form.
