We’re the same tortoise centre you know and love, but we’ve just updated our website to a new, mobile-friendly site to make it even easier to order supplies for your tortoise.

The Tortoise Centre is the specialist tortoise section in Wilton Pet Centre based in Bowers Gifford, Basildon, Essex. We are a family run business that has been in our current location for 40 years.

We specialise in the sale of high-quality, UK captive bred tortoises and everything you need to keep them fed, sheltered and warm.

We have a well-stocked shop that we’d love you to visit and an online shop for those who can’t make it to us.
