If you haven’t yet seen it, be sure to catch this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum, open until 30th June 2019. Now in its 54th year, this exhibit showcases some of the best wildlife photography in the world: a panel of expert judges selects 100 images from almost 50,000 global entries – from professional and amateur photographers, photojournalists and young photographers – and exhibits them on stunning, purpose-built light panels.
Allow yourself to be taken on a journey from the icy depths of the ocean to the scorching heat of the world’s hottest deserts, encountering extraordinary animal behaviour, breath-taking landscapes and the indescribable diversity of life on earth. The stories behind the photographs can be surprising and delightful, or sometimes challenging, encouraging viewers to reflect on man’s relationship with the natural world. If anything particularly catches your eye, you can pick up a print in the gift shop and take a little bit of the exhibition home with you, too!
Entries to the exhibition are timed, and can get very busy, so it’s best to book in advance. If you’ve booked a ticket, you also receive priority entry to the museum, too – so enjoy smugly bypassing the queues of people waiting to get in, and take time to explore the other exhibits!
Located an easy 10-minute stroll away from the Natural History Museum, staying with us at the Mercure London Kensington ensures you can maximise your time in the exhibition and the rest of this stunning museum.
