A spectacular new visitor centre and gateway to the Zoo designed by Architects Alan Newton Associates. The building has already won the Best Large Commercial Development award this year from Local Authority Building Control East Midlands and was highly commended for best sustainable building.

The interior space is inspired by Himalayan mountain scenes, with many genuine Tibetan features incorporated into a dynamic interior design. From the original carved visitor information wall, to the themed food kiosks, Cafe Tibet, shop and bazaar to the 300 seat dining area overlooking the snow leopard enclosure. An extremely challenging design and fit out has resulted in a unique customer experience.
