Thanks to Henry and Phil for a great day yesterday taking family and friends on a trip to Malthouse broad. Lovely lunch in the Malsters, always good food. Returning to base with all having a great day on the Norfolk broads. Lots of great comments from all my guests yesterday evening on the condition of the boat and the great crew.

Tripadvisor Review from dgpointon41 : August - 2018

Tripadvisor Review : "A wedding blessing".
I hired the Albion to transport our party to a wedding blessing at St Benets Abbey. The Captain and crew were marvellous and gave a lovely sail to the Abbey site. We were there joined my many other friends and family The Albion has been dressed overall and moorings effected. It was a lovely trip made lovelier by the 120 year old boat and her crew. Thank you Roger and crew.

Tripadvisor Review : "Another fun day on the Broads".
Thanks to the amazing crew for their warm welcome. Every effort was made to ensure we had an enjoyable day. Nothing was too much trouble. We were all invited to take part or just to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. When sailing on the Wherry you definitely feel part of her history.

Suzan Walker : August - 2018

Another enjoyable day on the Broads. Thanks to the crew for their warm welcome and working so hard to make sure we had a fun day.

Martin Collins : July - 2018

Facebook Review : A most enjoyable day out on the hottest day of the year on the Albion, facing 32 Deg C + of baking sunshine. The NNR volunteers and staff enjoyed a most memorable day on the Albion. Thanks go out to Martin Symes, host and organiser, also Skipper Rob Hole, Mate Nick Herridge, and Trainee Skipper Mick Harris. I have included a short video of the mast being lowered, 2 tonnes of lead below and 2 tonnes of mast above, makes for a good balancing act... (The video is on the NWT Facebook page).

Trevor Hipperson : July - 2018

A sizzling day aboard Albion was enjoyed by our party and special thanks to the crew of Roger, Mick, Phil and George for making the day so enjoyable.


Carol Griffin : July - 2018

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day on the Albion, being experienced dinghy and yacht sailers it was interesting and enjoyable to experience the relaxed pace of the day and join in with the endless banter of the volunteer crew. The Albion certainly casts an impressive sight and seems to command a huge amount of respect from hire boaters or was that just fear with 20+ tons of boat and 1200 sq feet of black sail blocking out their daylight.


Kevin Warner : July - 2018

Google My Business Review : Me and my wife went on the river sailing from Cantley, sailing along just using the wind was wonderful. Thanks to Roger and all the crew it made for great day out, the crew knew lots about the wherry past, present and how they work. The whole crew are very friendly, if you want good day out on river you sure do this. Thank you again for a great day out. Kevin & Alison.

Emily Greves : July - 2018

Martin Tailford : June - 2018

Thank you for a fantastic weekend on Albion. We really enjoyed being in the fresh air working with the crew to help sail and quant when necessary. Everyone was well catered for with good food and the bunks were comfortable both nights. The pub we had our evening meal at on 2nd night worked well to. The trips in the dinghy to get excellent pictures were fun - ALL ROUND ENJOYABLE.


Margo Mitchell : June - 2018

Facebook Review : With my Dad's 80th birthday coming up there was only one thing we wanted to do... take a trip on Albion. We were the first Charter this year and it didn't show. We had an amazing day looked after by three attentive and knowledgeable crew. The wherry is beautiful and very well looked after. I would strongly recommend a trip out to all. Thank you for helping us mark the occasion in cool style.
