As a charity with no ongoing government funding, the River & Rowing Museum relies on income from visitors and supporters like you. With its income drastically reduced whilst closed during lockdown and in order to secure the Museum’s long-term future, parking charges were introduced in August 2020 for the first time in the Museum’s 21 year history. Thank you for your support.
