Richard Whittlestone Wildlife Gallery

Located on the beautiful Chatsworth estate in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the Richard Whittlestone Wildlife Gallery is the home for Richard Whittlestone's stunning paintings which he sells all over the world.


The gallery houses  Richard's latest originals, together with a large selection of limited edition prints and cards. He works most days at the gallery which incorporates his studio and can be seen there where he is available to discuss commissions and latest projects.


With stunning views and ample parking, the gallery is well worth a visit at any time of year.


Richard's current work can all be seen in the Online Shop


Over the past 32 years, Richard has become one of the UK's most loved and respected wildlife artists. Working in acrylics, water colour and oils, his inspiration comes from his deep love of the countryside and his own encyclopaedic knowledge of birds & wildlife.
