Group travel

A day out in beautiful Henley-on-Thames

Enjoy a day out at the River & Rowing Museum with your group, and discover the history of this quintessentially English town.  With full or half day options available, five permanent galleries and a constantly changing series of temporary art exhibitions, there is so much to explore.  Visitors of all ages enjoy joining Ratty, Mole, Toad and Badger in the atmospheric Wind in the Willows 3D exhibition that brings the classic story to life!  In 2017 a brand new gallery opened featuring the work of popular British Artist John Piper, including painting, collage, stained glass and tapestry.

Coach & Car Parking

With room for 70 cars, the Museum has its own car park including coach-parking facilities. To ensure a smooth arrival and welcome for your group, we ask that coach parking is pre-booked. Our Duty Manager will greet your group on arrival, with a warm welcome and orientation information. We are pleased to offer free Museum admission for coach drivers.

Location

We are situated in the meadows on the banks of the river in the beautiful Henley on Thames. The Museum is easy to find and sign-posted from all entrances to the town, which is a leisurely ten minute walk away.  If you’d like to extend your visit, we are ideally situated for a visit to the stunning National Trust property Greys Court, local country park Stonor, as well as a short walk from the bustling centre of Henley.

Catering

The Café at the Museum offers a range of hot and cold lunch options, delicious freshly made cakes and afternoon tea options.  To book a table, or for menu information, please get in touch with Pilar Norfolk on 01491 415619 or email:  groups@rrm.co.uk

At the end of your visit, the Museum shop offers plenty of opportunities to take home a souvenir of your day out.  The shop is filled with gorgeous gifts, from beautiful leather handbags and pretty jewellery to books and greetings cards.  Group visitors enjoy a 10% discount in the Museum shop.
