“Horning Ferry. – This hostelry divides with ‘The Wherry’ Inn, at Oulton, the honour of being the most popular in the Broads. Thousands of yachts pass Horning every season and many of them moor and refresh their crews here. It is a well-known fishing resort and is a stopping place for the little pleasure steamers which run between Wroxham and Yarmouth and vice versa during the season. A glance at its visitors’ book will shew that many notable persons have used this inn as their rendezvous, the Marquis of Lorne, Lord Suffield and Mark Twain among others.”
