About Greater Yarmouth

The Greater Yarmouth region encompasses not only one of the UK’s most popular seaside resorts, Great Yarmouth, but much more besides. All along the coastline, small towns and villages hug the wide sandy beaches, perfect for lazing on a summer's day or for a bracing winter stroll.

Hemsby is a lively seaside resort with views over to Scroby Sands, home to a basking seal colony. Gorleston-on-Sea is a great place for stunning cliff-top views, relaxing on the lovely beach and listening to live music from the bandstand. Step back in time whilst sauntering along the grand promenade and visiting the lovely Edwardian theatre.

In contrast, Winterton-on-Sea is a quiet fishing village where you can wander along its peaceful beach before mingling with locals in the 300 year old pub. Just inland from the coast you’ll find gently rolling countryside, ideal for rambles or cycle rides.

Great Yarmouth is a fantastic place for family fun and there’s plenty to see and do. The glittering Golden Mile is the capital of fun with its summer shows, amusement arcades, rides and attractions of all shapes and sizes lining the promenade. Glorious sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and the two iconic piers provide plenty of holiday fun.
