Museum of the Broads
Steam and Sail experience
Operating in conjunction with the Museum of the Broads at Stalham, Steam and Sail experiences offer the historic combination of a ride on steam launch Falcon, the gleaming pride of the Museum of the Broads, and a sail aboard one of our wherry yachts on Barton Broad.
Time & Location
22 Aug 2024, 11:15 – 13:15
Museum of the Broads, Staithe Road, Stalham, NR12 9DA
About the day
This steam and sail experience begins at the Museum of the Broads, a museum in the boating centre of Stalham, dedicated to Broadland life.
From the museum you’ll steam to Barton Broad on Falcon, a unique Victorian steam launch. At Barton Broad swap steam for sail power and enjoy a sail around the Broad aboard one of our wherry yachts, then switch back to Falcon and steam back to the museum at Stalham. The whole experience lasts around two hours. The last trip of the day (3pm) will steam out on Falcon and sail back to the museum. Your Steam and Sail ticket also covers entry to the Museum of the Broads. Please allow time to visit, or talk to the Museum before your boat trip about returning on another day. Museum open Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and school holiday Mondays, from 1000 to 1600.
The 'sail' section of the steam and sail experience 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.
