Enhancing visitor experience at Orleans House Gallery

On the banks of the river in Twickenham sits, in our opinion, one of London’s finest hidden treasures. Orleans House Gallery overlooks the River Thames and sits within the famous view from Richmond Hill.

Originally built in 1710 the architecture and footprint of the house has altered dramatically through the centuries to suit the needs of politicians, royalty and collectors, to name but a few!

The building is now a gallery and historic house, open free to the public. After undergoing an extensive HLF funded transformation we were delighted to be appointed to create a wayfinding trail depicting the changing footprint of the landscape and the colourful history of each era of this stunning house.

Working closely with the heritage interpretation team at Orleans House Gallery we created a multi-layered, graphic map to enhance the visitor experience in and around the house and grounds. Activities and engaging details make for an interactive and thought-provoking guide to the site.

We were thrilled to receive our printed copies from Orleans House Gallery. It was wonderful to work with an organisation who recognise the value in creating engaging visitor material.
