Time & Location

The Wherry Base, Wroxham, Barton House, Hartwell Rd, Wroxham, Norwich NR12 8TL

About the day

Leaving our base, we'll head away from the bustle of Wroxham with a variety of cottages and grand houses on either side. As we leave habitation behind we'll enter Wroxham Broad, a wide expanse of open water enjoyed by pleasure craft and where birdlife can be spotted. After enjoying some time sailing, we will drop the sail in a quiet spot and you will be guided by our Artist in Residence in creating your own multimedia piece of art.  Materials are provided, though you are welcome to bring items yourself as well.

This sailing will be aboard one of our three wherry yachts: Olive, Norada or White Moth. These surviving wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins. They spent over three decades within his hire fleet, followed by a period of mixed fortunes in private ownership after World War II, before they were reunited in 2012 by the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust. 

Please park in the Wherry Yacht Charter car park at Barton House, Hartwell Road, Wroxham. NR12 8TL, by 9.45am.  A crew member will meet you there and walk with you down the path to the wherry moored on the quayside.  

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.
