The Museum has a large car park for Museum, Cafe and Shop visitors (only) with a flat parking fee of £4 per vehicle.  Please turn right into the Museum car park on arrival at the Museum, and take a ticket from the barrier.  Present your ticket to pay for your parking at our front desk where the visitor services team will be able to assist you. They will also then provide you with the exit code for the car park for when you are ready to leave.  The code is changed daily.  The places are offered on a first come first served basis, and available places cannot be guaranteed.  There is a large public car park on the river side of the Museum, operated by Henley Town Council.

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, a flat rate parking charge of £4 per vehicle has been introduced for the first time in the Museum’s 21 year history. Thank you for your support.
