Explore the Orwell under sail


Experience the natural beauty of the River Orwell on Thames Sailing Barge Victor with either a private party with up to 40 of your friends, family or colleagues or join one of the scheduled cruises on board SB Victor.

Specially designed for families, friendship groups and individuals to enjoy a relaxing sail – fully inclusive of food and specified refreshment (additional drinks available from the licensed bar). Departing from the Old Custom’s House in Ipswich Dock, passing through the lock gates and sailing down the beautiful and historic River Orwell and under the Orwell Bridge is a truly memorable way to spend time with friends and family.

Also available on board the Victor are Suffolk High Teas, Sunday Lunches and Hot Buffet Suppers.

Built in 1895 in Ipswich and restored in 2006 Victor is now celebrating her 120th Anniversary. The Sailing Barge Victor is a perfect marriage of a majestic and traditionally rigged 19th Century sailing vessel, with comfortable and modern amenities.
