Pre-book our special extras and make your Broadland Charters experience extra special.

All our delicious onboard food is made to order and locally sourced by our expert chefs.

"Norfolk Time" is a local saying that describes the slow and relaxed pace of life experienced throughout Norfolk and the Broads so we thought it rather an apt name for our charter boat. Why choose a self-drive day boat when you can step onboard a luxury sports boat with a fully qualified skipper and have crew to look after you for the duration?

Hi Simon, I would like thank you and share my recent experiences of the cruise you organised. Firstly, we had a wonderful time cruising up to the fjords on the Crown Princess. The ship was absolutely fantastic. The customer service was amongst the best we have ever experienced, the food was out of this world and the variety of things to do kept myself and my family thoroughly entertained. It was an excellent choice by yourself that this would be a worthwhile first time cruise. Most of all though I wanted to thank you for taking the time to research and investigate which would be the best cruise for my family to take. You used your vast cruising experience to identify our needs and you put our minds to rest with superb customer service. You walked us through every step of the booking process and always made yourself available regarding the many questions we had whether it was about the cruise, embarkation and disembarkation or what to do in Norway. The service you offered was just amazing and we would not only consider you first for future cruise bookings but also would highly recommend you to friends and family in the future. Thanks again for everything - Mr and Mrs Gyde
"Having always been sceptical about dealing with travel agents, it took some persuading to use All Things Holiday and Travel. My fears were totally unjustified – Simon asked what we wanted and was able to organise the whole thing. At every stage, we were given realistic options, with all the relevant information. Once the details were decided, he gave us a time frame and throughout the process, by Email, or phone when necessary, kept me informed and explained what I had to do. We had a wonderful holiday with everything, from the parking, flights, transfers, hotel and the tours we’d booked, going like clockwork. I can honestly recommend All Things Holiday and Travel. The care and attention given to us made everything stress free – and all at a very competitive price. When I’m asked “would you recommend to friends and family” I’ll say 10 (where 1 equals least likely and 10 equals most likely)” Martin Jones Norwich
"Reflecting on what was an entirely new experience for me, I realised that I might have had less enjoyment from the cruise had I not had the advantage of some expert advice from travel agent Simon Chapman. I wanted to visit the Baltic, but it was Simon who picked Celebrity Silhouette as the right vessel for the inclement weather you can experience even in June.It was Simon who recommended Aqua class - well worth the extra, not least for the marvellous dining experience in the Blue restaurant, with an attentive head water who quickly learned my preferences, and somehow always managed to get my husband and I a table by the large picture windows just a few feet from the sea. And it was Simon who provided knowledgeable advice on shore excursions in places I had never visited before - like St Petersburg, Tallinn and Riga. Five star service Simon" - Susan Grice
"We would like to say a massive thank you for the super cruise you organised for us. It was great to have a personal service from our travel organiser who made sure everything we needed was planned to perfection. The holiday was wonderful and all connections were smooth and faultless , thanks to your superb attention to detail. We would not hesitate to recommend your service to any of our friends who need holiday and booking advice". The Haines family, Norwich

Passionate people photographer, based in Norwich … enthusiastic portrait photographer … Family portraits especially … Particularly fascinated by trying to capture the exuberance and joy of young children making sense of the world…
Family portrait photography and children’s portraits ….
I have an enhanced DBS check and am on the update service. I have £5 million pounds public liability insurance.
30 years experience as photographer, 5 years as professional. (Previously - 22 years in primary education, including seven years as the head of Mulbarton Infant School) I have conducted multiple photoshoots in schools and preschools throughout Norfolk, clients this year include Mulbarton Primary, Mulberrybush, Nightingale First, Colman infant and Junior, Caister Infant, Fred Nicholson Special School St Helen's preschool, and Salhouse toddler group.
Children are an amazing photographic subject. They see the world differently, and often express a lot more love and emotion than adults. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge, and a profound learning experience.
I also work closely with dance schools and PE departments, capturing the exuberance of young people in motion. Special fundraisers for PTAs and committees a speciality.
Probably the best way to describe my wedding photography style is modern traditional. I look for those spontaneous and distinctive – sometimes even quirky – expressions of love, joy, and happiness which spark photos into glorious life.
I want couples to look back at the photos and remember specifically how they felt when those moments were captured. My work ultimately is about the couple themselves – what they want and what makes them and their day different to every other wedding, and capturing that. They themselves and their relationship are the single most important focus for me on the day. And I also pay close attention to making the details of the day that the couples have worked so hard on, as well as some of the individual characters at the wedding, and the different elements and events which take place during the day, very much part of the visual story.
I love to produce modern, relaxed, natural, classic and clean imagery that remains as beautiful in later years as it was when it was captured.
