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.

Sailing through, we rejoin the tree-lined Bure and continue to Hoveton Great Broad, one of the largest yet most secret lakes in The Broads. We will stop here for an hour or so for a guided tour along the Hoveton Great Broad Nature Trail with one of the wardens, who will provide information and insight into the wildlife and flora of the area. 

Back onboard we make the short trip to Salhouse Broad, a picturesque broad and certainly one of our favourites, where we'll find a quiet corner to pause for lunch before the return journey.

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.
