Herstmonceux Castle WordPress website

The team at Herstmonceux Castle commissioned Bamb to design and build a new WordPress website that sells the castle and castle grounds as a wonderful day out, event destination or wedding venue.

The gardens and grounds of Herstmonceux Castle is a tourist destination that also hosts events and weddings throughout the year.

With lots of great photography, it made sense that the new website gives as much space as possible to show off images of the castle and gardens. We decided to strip it all back and showcase the castle with big images and nicely placed text and icons.

The result is a website that has been positively received by regular customers, a significant increase in visitor numbers and facilities such as online ticketing, a shop and application forms.

Above you can see several screens for the mobile layout. We stripped back more imagery and relied on a lot more white space to make content easy to digest on the fly without slowing down devices or using too much data.

“The new WordPress website is a real step up as we react to seeing yearly increases in desktop and mobile website visitors. We have faith in Bamb as we look to invest wisely into online solutions.”
