First Light Photography

Join us for the magic of golden hour at Stourhead this autumn with our first light photographers’ sessions.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Arrive before our normal opening, and capture the garden at sunrise.

Please note that these sessions are ideal for amateur photographers. Whilst we welcome all photographers at Stourhead, commercial photography requires a license which can be arranged through our press office. Please contact: for details and to book a commercial shoot.

Capture the season of autumnal mists, fiery leaves and golden light with special early morning access into the garden. These sessions provide a limited number of places for amateur photographers before the garden opens to the public.
