A popular family seaside resort for over 200 years, Great Yarmouth, continues to attract holidaymakers each year who come for its blend of modern attractions and traditional seaside fun.
Great Yarmouth is rightly famed for its long seafront, Marine Parade and large beach; aptly named ‘The Golden Mile’. Lined with gift shops, amusement arcades, refreshment kiosks and family attractions, the seafront is the epicentre of fun in the town.
At the end of Marine Parade, you will find Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach, which is home to fairground rides and amusements to suit all ages. A little closer to the town, there is a fabulous Sea Life Centre, a charming model village and a reptile house. Along with the two piers you will find that there’s plenty to keep all the family occupied during you holiday cottage stay in this bustling resort.
The centre of town is equally packed with things to do, including a great choice of shops and places to eat and drink. There are also a number of museums within the town, including the award-winning Time and Tide Museum, which recounts the long history of the fishing industry in the area. In addition to a number of interesting exhibits and displays, you can also experience the atmosphere of an authentic Victorian smokehouse.
Close by are the coastal resorts of Lowestoft and Caister-on-Sea; well worth a visit.
