The Exploration Society have used Herbert Woods for many years to book boats for our Norfolk Broads trips. We?ve always found them reliable, helpful, communicative and flexible. We would wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone looking to organize a group booking. Exploration Society
For both students and staff this trip is an excellent opportunity to build relationships with different people outside of the classroom environment - a great time was had by everyone.
