We are on the broads for two weeks from the 24 in blue horizon 2 i have two limited mobility so stern on mooring is not possible. So starting north and going up the Thurn Hickling  and Horsey. Then down to the south to Gediston lock and Oulton broad up the Yare so we are at Norwich on Tuesday so the my autistic grandson can have the Norwich City ground tour. Then back north  to visit the rest of the broads and also take a trip in the Steam railway from Wroxham.
If any one has any ideas where reduced mobility can also visit please let me know  This is a two week trip

AngloFrog,

What boat are you hiring?

Are you sure it will go under THAT bridge to allow you through to Hickling/Horsey?

I would echo Gary's comments. If I were you I wouldn't build too many plans around Hickling and Horsey. I know it says in Richardson's blurb it will pass under all bridges, but you'd need to be very lucky indeed to get under PH.

Is your grandson able to cope with theme parks?  Bewilder wood is a
walk from Horning or you could get a cab.
Fair haven Water Gardens are a good outing. If you moor in Fleet
Dyke and ring to book tickets including  boat trip 01692670711 they
should be able to collect your party and take you to the gardens by
water, it is a fun trip.
Possible snags would be, boarding the trip boat, it is a set of steps
with good handrail, and checking that the boat is running.
I think they have golf carts at Fairhaven so one of you could collect
one from the land entrance and bring it to the jetty.
Best wishes,

Pauline

Hi Anglofrog, I too have limited mobility and the lefthand bank can be tricky for getting on and off the boat, fine if you can moor on the righthand side near The Locks though.  Geldeston is a nice place and worth a shot I think, we were there in August. Smile

Without wishing to sound stupid or indeed critical but is there any particular reason for choosing Blue Horizon?
I would have thought there are many more boats better suited for limited ability occupants and without stern on options you would be missing out a fair few places particularly as you are on-board for two weeks.

I suggest you make the plan, halve it and enjoy pottering through that half. Smile

Best wishes,
