Great Yarmouth fishing port

Details

Time & Tide in Great Yarmouth is set in one of the UK's best preserved Victorian Herring curing works, and tells the story of Great Yarmouth from its ice age origins to the present day.
Experience the heady atmosphere of a 1950's fish wharf and take the wheel of a steam drifter. Hear gripping tales of wreck and rescue and meet some of the colourful characters who made their living from the sea.

Explore the original smokehouses where the lingering aroma of smoked fish is a reminder of times gone by. Enjoy fascinating archive film shows and hands on displays and relax in the attractive courtyard beneath a canopy of sails.
