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.  Sailing through, we rejoin the tree-lined Bure and continue past Salhouse Broad and through the busy riverside village of Horning.  Later, turning up the river Ant, you'll get to see just how we get a wherry under Ludham Bridge as we head towards How Hill - an area dedicated to the conservation of Broads habitats.

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 public car park at How Hill.  A minibus will collect passengers at 9:25am and drive to Wroxham, where the wherry yacht will be moored, in time for a 10.00am departure.

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 arrival time may not always be as advertised.
