The most exciting day out you’ve ever had
Each year we welcome around 5,000 visitors on day visits, and residential stays in the bungalow. Groups come from Norfolk, Suffolk and further afield - from schools, residential care homes, day centres and charities organising holidays or day trips for their supporters. We welcome carers who accompany our visitors, and we also have families both on day trips and for holidays in the bungalow. Many groups and families visit regularly and become firm friends with the staff and volunteers. All activities are supervised by our team of Royal Yachting Association qualified and experienced staff and volunteers. They are all trained to ensure your safety and guarantee that everyone has a great day out!
