Great Yarmouth Hotels
Situated on the coastline of Norfolk, families have been flocking to Great Yarmouth since the late 1700s. The resort is now one of the most popular destinations in Britain for day trips, weekend breaks and longer holidays. With so much to do from shopping, arcades, funfairs, two piers, great attractions and a beautiful sandy beach, it's easy to see why people keep coming back.
Things to do
There are more than 15 miles of sandy beaches within the Greater Yarmouth area, all with gentle slopes and calm waters. Beachcombers enjoy hunting for pieces of amber along the high-tide mark here, particularly after stormy weather.
At the bottom end of the golden mile (Great Yarmouth's shining glory) the pleasure beach can be seen, heard and experienced first-hand. Scream on a thrill ride or take something a little gentler – it’s your call.
Britannia Pier is at the opposite end of the promenade at the bottom of the town’s main shopping street. The pier houses children's rides, arcades, try-your-luck stalls and plenty of food, drink and entertainment, with even a horse and carriage waiting outside. The main street itself holds many wonders, including a rock shop, two wax museums and more.
A second pier, Wellington, has a large indoor leisure complex comprising bowling, arcades, simulators and various eateries.
Visit the Amazonia World of Reptiles for an animal close encounter, during which you can hold a baby crocodile or python or hand-feed a group of lovable meerkats.
You might want to take a look at a miniature town and country with its own railway in beautiful landscaped gardens at Merridale Model Village.
Step back in time at Yesterday's World, a living museum with plenty to see and do; it even has a traditional sweet shop inside and a vintage tearoom next door. Experience the atmosphere of a 1950s fish wharf and take the wheel of a steam drifter at Time & Tide, which explains Great Yarmouth’s story from its Ice Age origins to today.
For more energetic entertainment, how about a round of crazy golf or pitch and putt, or backing the winner at the horse or greyhound tracks? At the fantastic indoor and outdoor water centre at Vauxhall Holiday Park, you can have some splashing good family fun.
Food and drink
Great Yarmouth serves up plenty of variety, from great seafood and steak to high-class bistro dinners.
