Tourism Projects

Louth Town Museum - mezzanine cabinets and Louth Panorama

Over the last twenty years our tourism consultancy work  under the name of Phoenix Design has resulted in a number of tourist attractions and museums designed by John Chapman; the Royal Geological Museum in Penzance, Beachy Head Countryside Centre, Louth Town Museum, The Mineral Tramways Discovery Centre, King Edward Mine, Marsh Farm, Essex  as well as displays at Lands End, Looe, Noah’s Ark, Bristol, and The Isles of Scilly Museum.

A particular specialisation was the design and construction of high quality cabinet work, retail design and themed displays.
