Offering inspiration for photographers all the year round, the beautiful Capel Manor Gardens are right at the top of North London just off the M25. Capel Manor Gardens’ beautiful 30 acre estate, first established in the late 13th century, provides a colourful and scented oasis surrounding a Georgian Manor House and Victorian Stables.

The abundance of beautiful subjects here, including 60 individual Gardens and landscapes with a variety of themes such as the Japanese Gardens, Water Gardens, statues, ponds and greenhouses (perfect for photography on rainy days), make Capel Manor Gardens an ideal venue to enjoy one of our photography courses. Capel Manor is also home to a number of animals such as Meerkats and Llamas. The farmyard animals include ducks, pigs and shire horses. The gardens and ponds provide a safe haven for a variety of wildlife including butterflies, bees and insects.
