Bluewater is celebrating the beauty of its incredible landscape with a unique exhibition of stunning photography, captured by local Bluewater guests. Beautiful Bluewater showcases 33 shots of the centre’s striking natural environment in more than 50 acres of lakes and parkland.

Local amateur photographers were challenged to capture the images over the course of summer, seeing Bluewater’s outdoors spaces in full bloom, for the opportunity to have their work displayed at the gallery. Now open for all to enjoy, the exhibition includes atmospheric shots of Bluewater’s contemporary architecture as well as images of the local wildlife soaking up the sun on one of the lakes. The competition received over 60 entries with the 12 winning photographers also receiving a Bluewater gift card.

During the development of Bluewater, which sits in a picturesque former chalk quarry, more than one million trees and shrubs were planted, and have now grown and flourished into more Green Flag award-winning lakes and parklands, home to an array of rare wildlife. Guiding guests through this stunning landscape is the Nature Trail, with fun family activities and interesting information at each location, including the beautiful swan lake, the Mosaic Tunnel, Pirate Cove and new Pixie Valley.

Visitors can head to the Beautiful Bluewater Gallery on the Lower Guildhall to view the winning imagery, open until September. Please visit for more information.
