Stylish website showcases Royal Horticultural Halls’ flagship venue


The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) offers a range of event venues including the Lindley Hall, one of the most respected venues in central London, which is administered by the Royal Horticultural Halls (RHH).

As it had recently streamlined its operations to a single event space – the Lindley Hall – RHH wanted a new website to replace the existing slow, outdated one. Oculus was one of several agencies invited to pitch and, before presenting, we carried out a thorough competitor analysis and website audit, which helped to establish how best to exploit the Lindley Hall’s distinctive qualities.

We were delighted to be appointed by RHH and the new-look website showcases the Lindley Hall by using high-impact visual elements to reflect its beauty, light and spaciousness and promotes it as a premier venue.

Oculus also:

  • Provided copywriting to maximise readability and search engine optimisation
  • Drew up floor plans to show layouts for different events that can be staged at the venue
  • Incorporated Google Maps application programme interfaces (APIs) for directions and to show the nearest parking and accommodation
  • Created a 360-degree virtual tour of the exterior and interior using HTML5

Besides being a beautiful building, the Lindley Hall is also a very versatile space. The smart new website fulfils RHH’s objective of getting this across graphically, while also encouraging visitors to arrange a viewing.

The website, built on Kentico CMS 6, is easy to navigate and is very user friendly. It is also now much easier for RHH to keep the website fresh by updating text and images, and adding news items and links.

Thank you so much again for helping us out with the website… the virtual tour looks amazing!
