What we're about

Hello & welcome to UK Photo Tours.

Newsflash! - Due to the lower UK ยฃ, all tours are effectively 20% off in USD compared to the start of 2022!

UKPT runs small-group photographic landscape, wildlife, and astrophotography workshops and photo tours, offering personalized tuition in some of the most stunning locations across the UK. (max 5 participants for multi-day trips)

Under UK Photo Tours, we run multi-day tours and workshops, traveling to Englandโ€™s picturesque Lake District, photograph nightscapes in Norfolk, rugged Jurassic Coast in Dorset, and Scotlandโ€™s incredible Isle of Skye and Glencoe for the breathtaking scenery.

Our wildlife workshops venture to some of the most spectacular wildlife locations in the UK, such as witnessing the birth of Atlantic Grey Seal Pups in Norfolk, charismatic Puffins on the Farne Islands, and the Norfolk Snettisham Spectacular, where over 100,000 wading birds take to the air.

We offer a variety of popular day trips during the year, including:
Stonehenge at sunset
Bodiam Castle
Vintage Airshows
Medieval Jousting

We've operated international tours and workshops since 2014, specializing in the UK but also extending to trips to Iceland and Australia.

UKPT is proud to be supported by Kase filters and clients are able to use a loan set each for the duration of their tour. We're the exclusive UK tour supplier to one of the largest and highest-rated tour companies in the world, Iceland Photo Tours, and we are listed on both VisitScotland and VisitBritain's tourism websites.

Private tours are available.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon.
