Christ Church's Visitor Centre has been recognised by Oxford Preservation Trust in their 2021 awards. 

Each year, the OPT Awards celebrate the contribution that buildings and environmental projects can make to Oxford’s character, its streets and its green spaces. Christ Church won a Oxford Preservation Trust award for new buildings.

The historic thatched barn sitting within the sensitive Christ Church Meadows was transformed into a new visitor centre complete with an interpretation area, shop and café.

The project incorporates the re-use of the historic barn, enhances the visitor experience at Christ Church, and has enabled the Chapter House, which was previously used as a tourist shop, to be restored.
