Wildlife Holidays in the United Kingdom

In a world where long-haul travel is so easy, we can sometimes forget the wildlife and scenic treasures to be found at home.

From the rolling heaths and woodlands of the New Forest National Park to the extensive wetlands that line the north Norfolk coastline, the varied habitats and landscapes of Great Britain are home to a wealth of exciting wildlife. It is definitely not essential to go abroad when wildlife holidays in the British Isles offer such diversity!

Our Specialist Recommends

"I recommend our short break in the Somerset Levels. The winter starling roosts and mumurations are spectacular, being the largest in the UK and often containing around 1 million birds! In the spring the reed beds teem with life and an incredible 7 species of heron now breed here. For a longer break our 'Scotland's Mammals & Highlights of the Highlands' holiday offers many special species including Pine Marten, Otter and Golden Eagle, together with breath-taking scenery throughout."
