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 a selection of nature and wildlife 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 17th century, with many original features.

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

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