Events & Open Days

We normally offer a number of opportunities for you to visit and sail on Albion during the sailing season (May-September).

Albion, a Norfolk wherry, celebrating her 125th birthday in 2023 was built as a cargo carrying sailing barge and rescued by Norfolk Wherry Trust in 1949, and maintained in sailing condition by volunteers ever since.  She has a vast black sail and her hull measures some 60′ long by 15′ wide.  Voted ‘runner up’ Flagship of the Year by National Historic Ships in 2010, she has featured in TV programmes hosted by Matt Baker and Giles Coren and hosted Timothy West and Prunella Scales in an episode of Great Canal Journeys.  In 2021, Albion featured in an episode of  two Channel 5 series – Motorhoming with Paul Merton and Suki Webster and Susan Calman’s Grand Day Out.   Come and see the Broads icon that enchanted them all.
