One hundred impressive images can be seen displayed in an ultra-modern lightbox format until September 18.

The blockbuster show won critical acclaim when it first opened in London attracting thousands of visitors.

Founded in 1964, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world's most astonishing and challenging sights.

This year's competition received more than 40,000 submissions from amateur and professional photographers in more than 95 countries, all of whom were competing for the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
