Details

Experienced volunteers give guided tours of the wherry and talk about her history, cargoes and her sailing.

Facilities for groupsFacilities for educational visitsFacilities for corporate hospitality

Albion comes with a volunteer crew to sail her and ensure your safety. Albion is as original as she can be and so modern facilities are minimal. Down below in the original cargo hold there is a gas cooker and a large refectory table with benches. There are bunks for people chartering overnight, (when lanterns are provided) and a toilet. She is equipped with cutlery and crockery. Most people, on day charter, bring a picnic - we can recommend local suppliers - but we can also sail to riverside pubs. Albion was given - the first ever - runners up award for the 'Flagship of the Year 2010' competition run by National Historic Ships, which is the organisation responsible to government for the preservation of our national maritime heritage www.nationalhistoricships.org.uk
