A bespoke WordPress website for the River & Rowing Museum, Henley.


  • Website
  • Specials
  • E-Coms


The River and Rowing Museum located on the banks of the River Thames in Henley upon Thames was recently voted on of the top 50 Museums in the World by the Sunday Times. Designed by the acclaimed architect David Chipperfield it attracts over 116,000 visitors a year.


RRM wanted to achieve a clean contemporary feel without compromising on their ability to edit content.  We designed their new website from the ground up creating bespoke design templates for WordPress  which we used as the core content management system. Javascript animation was used to bring the content to life and custom content areas were seamlessly replicated across different pages. We also built a bespoke event calendar and integrated their existing collection database into the new look and feel.

The River & Rowing Museum’s Swan Upping project originated from David Barber, The Queen’s Swan Marker, who wanted to celebrate Swan Upping in the Diamond Jubilee year with a workshop and family day. As well as creating a dedicated channel on the website we also created an interactive e-Book to help teachers and children explore the project further. The e-Book itself contains photo galleries, quotes and videos and is viewable on all platforms and devices.



RRM also asked us to create a monthly email newsletter for them which we did using our own bespoke email system Digi-Dispatch. Templates are easily edited online by RRM staff and distributed worldwide via  our network distribution partners. The system provides real-time reporting on opens, bounces ,click through’s etc. as well as automatically handling the required opt out protocols.
