Boating Holidays from Ferry Marina

Welcome to the Home of Holidays Cruisers on the Norfolk Broads

The Broads is Britain’s magical waterland, a uniquely beautiful environment shaped by man working hand in hand with nature over thousands of years. This wonderful protected wetland – England’s largest – has over 125 miles of enchanting waterways, carefully managed over centuries for people and wildlife alike.

Horning Ferry Marina is situated alongside the River Bure in the heart of the Norfolk Broads and is a perfect base from which to explore Norfolk's rivers, villages and broads.

We have a delightful range of holiday accommodation, from apartments to spacious new luxury cottages - all with glorious views across our marina. Just relax and watch the world go by from the luxury of your balcony or patio.

Without a doubt, the most magical way to discover the Broads is by boat, with over 125 tranquil, lock-free miles to explore. Our fleet of holiday cruisers can accommodate couples, families and larger groups, and includes several brand new designs - based on our eco-friendly low-wash hull which helps to minimise bank erosion. If you simply fancy a day out on the water, our range of luxury day cruisers, complete with toilet and galley, are just the ticket.

The picturesque village of Horning boasts several riverside pubs and restaurants; a range of shops including a delicatessen, post office, butchers, newsagent and gift shops are all within walking distance of Ferry Marina.

Harry's, our new coffee shop & café, forms part of the popular Helska leisure pool. This refurbished facility (for 2010) is open from Easter to October. The indoor heated pool & spa enjoys views across the Marina and is the perfect place to relax during your stay (charges to swim apply).


From the moment we were greeted on arrival it was like returning home. This was our third visit to Ferry Marina and as previous visits, everything was superb. Jade Emblem was our third different boat and every possible need was catered for - another superb boat. It was nice to speak to Peter and the Girls on our departure. We would like to thank the entire staff at Ferry Marina for making our week so special once again.
