Very high energy (VHE) gamma-ray astronomy uses the highest energy electromagnetic radiation to probe the non-thermal universe. The field has undergone a transformation over the last 5 years or so, much of which has been driven by observations made with the H.E.S.S. telescopes. Operating in Namibia since 2004, they have been largely responsible for a 10-fold increase in the number of astronomical objects known to emit at VHE . This talk will cover some of the results from the H.E.S.S. telescopes, touching on several different areas of astroparticle physics including the search for dark matter and quantum gravity effects. I will also take a look at the prospects for the next-generation instrument, the Cherenkov Telescope Array.
