The area

The Borough of Great Yarmouth has something to appeal to visitors, whatever the time of year.

During the summer, our famous Golden Mile fizzes with fun, its attractions, restaurants, tea rooms and bars nestling alongside one of Britain’s broadest, sandiest beaches. To the north of Marine Parade dunes appear along a quieter stretch of beach that attracts sunbathers, walkers and birdwatchers.

There are fabulous summer shows at the Britannia Pier, Gorleston Pavilion, St. George’s Theatre and Hippodrome Circus, the UK’s only surviving total circus building. You can immerse yourself in history at the award-winning Time and Tide Museum, the Nelson Museum, the Elizabethan House Museum, the Great Yarmouth Row Houses, Lydia Eva steam drifter, the Tolhouse Gaol, the Caister Car Collection, and the well-preserved Roman fort at Burgh Castle. Most of these are open throughout the year.

Great Yarmouth is one of the gateways to the world-famous Norfolk Broads, a series of interconnecting rivers and broads created from ancient peat diggings that flooded in the 14th century. Take a day boat and explore this amazing habitat.

For sports enthusiasts, there’s horse racing at Great Yarmouth Racecourse, golf courses at Caister, Gorleston and Fritton, and stock car racing and greyhound racing at Yarmouth Stadium.

Key events include the amazing Out There Festival of Circus Skills and Street Arts and the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival, both taking place in September.
