Covid-19 – Impact & Response
The Norfolk Wherry Trust is, like all responsible organisations, following government advice about the Covid-19 virus. The safety and health of charter and day cruise passengers and the NWT volunteers and visitors is of paramount importance. Changes have had to be made to the operational schedule. All bookings for Albion are cancelled until 1st July 2020 and day cruises and open days until 15th July 2020. Bookings are still being taken for all dates after 1st July 2020 until the end of the season. More details can be found here.
Welcome to The Norfolk Wherry Trust
Welcome to the Wherry Albion, a 122yr old traditional Norfolk Wherry. Known as a “black sailed trader”, she is one of only two remaining commercial Wherries built specifically for the Broads. At their peak there were over 300 of these craft, but now Albion is the only one available for hire.
In the summer months during the Edwardian era, skippers scrubbed out the holds and took holiday makers for trips to make extra money. If you want to follow in Edwardian footsteps and explore the unique Broads wetlands beneath Albion’s vast black sail, then go to our Charter Page to find out all you need to know – otherwise we would love to see you at one of our Free Public Open Days that you will find listed under Events.
BBC Countryfile Magazine named Albion as one of the Top 10 Boat Trips in the UK.
