Gallery - Bookshop

River Wood is the only gallery-bookshop in the UK dedicated solely to wildlife and wild places. It is situated in Rhayader, the outdoor capital of Wales, close to the famous Elan Valley, a Dark Skies Reserve and a wild landscape of lakes, woods and mountains.

The gallery shows the wildlife art of James Roberts who works in a unique style using ink and salt on paper. Original paintings, prints, pamphlets and cards are available.

The bookshop adjoining the gallery has many nature, wildlife, art and photography titles, both new and secondhand.

The gallery and bookshop is housed in a grade 2 listed building, one of the oldest shops in Wales, dating back to the 16th century, with many original features.

A studio space is located upstairs where workshops will be held, including writing, drawing and painting, and connecting to nature via creative practice outdoors.

Opening times are 11am – 4pm Thursday to Saturday, 11am – 3pm Sunday (studio visits by appointment).
