North Walsham & Dilham Canal Historic Boat Tours


Take a guided boat tour of Norfolk's only sailing canal, built in 1826, onboard an electric boat named after the last commercial vessel to sail the route.

Tours last around one hour and can be arranged at a time of your choosing, with boats thoroughly cleaned between uses and Covid secure measures in operation. Tours embark from Ebridge Mill car park, from where a steerer guides passengers upstream, taking in the wildlife and providing background history of this fascinating waterway.

From its hay day, busy with working wherries, to years left abandoned, to its current period of restoration, the North Walsham and Dilham Canal has had quite a history. This boat tour is the perfect way to learn more about the waterway and support its ongoing restoration, with all money helping funding the charity that operates the canal: The North Walsham & Dilham Canal Trust.

Guide Prices

£40 per boat trip of up to five people.
