We are the only facility of our kind in East Anglia, providing a wide range of accessible boating activities and opportunities for our visitors.

We ask for a suggested voluntary donation of £17.00 per person per session and carers go free. If you have any difficulty paying for boat trips or transport to get to us, please ask about our bursary scheme which may be able to help. It is not means tested, and can subsidise your visit by up to 50% or more in certain circumstances.

We operate motorboat cruises, sailing and canoeing Monday to Friday, morning and afternoon. We can arrange weekend and evening cruises and sailing with sufficient notice. We can be more flexible in timings at weekends, so bring a picnic and enjoy a day out!

At the Nancy Oldfield Trust we take everyone’s safety very seriously. As a Royal Yachting Association Recognised Training Centre we operate  to RYA standards and are inspected annually by the RYA. We are also inspected biennially by Adventure Activities Licensing Authority.
