About the day

This sailing begins at How Hill - an area dedicated to the conservation of Broads habitats.  From How Hill, we sail up the River Ant passing the small riverside village of Irstead. Barton Broad is rich in wildlife so keep the binoculars to hand for kingfishers, marsh harriers and more. Our destination is Barton Broad, the second largest of the Norfolk Broads and rumoured to be where Admiral Nelson learnt to sail. 

This sailing will be aboard Hathor, our oldest wherry. Enjoy her lavish and stylish interior with the star attraction being her beautiful inlaid woodwork featuring ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Please park in the public car park at How Hill, NR29 5PG by 9.45am and walk across the field towards the river where Hathor will be moored at the Staithe. 

On board our crew will provide tea, coffee and squash, with biscuits, but please bring your own lunch and any other drinks/snacks that you require.

We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our return time may not always be as advertised.
