Buckler's Hard

Buckler's Hard is a sister attraction to the popular Beaulieu Motor Museum, and we took over their previous site in 2020.   As a historical village in the heart of the New Forest, the team sought to modernise its digital presence to better showcase its rich maritime history and attract more visitors. Their existing website was outdated, not user-friendly, and lacked the capabilities to effectively engage their audience.

Our challenge was to design a website that reflects Buckler's Hard's historical significance while providing a seamless user experience. 

Key requirements included a responsive design, improved navigation, and visual content elements to engage users and help drive visits.


We developed a custom WordPress website with a focus on user experience and visual storytelling. Key features included:

  • A visually rich, responsive design that adapts to any device.
  • User-friendly navigation with helpful content and timelines to explore the village's history.
  • Integration of multimedia elements, including historical photographs and videos.
  • An easy-to-use content management system for regular updates by the Buckler's Hard team.

What’s next

We’re excited to have built on our relationship working with the Beaulieu Estate since 2020.  This next step towards modernising their online systems will help unlock more capabilities and ensure visitors get the best impression possible from their first visit.
