Visit Great Yarmouth - Norfolk's premier seaside resort

Great Yarmouth is a unique, fun destination for a holiday. Whether you're looking for a traditional yet modern and very upbeat British seaside holiday or you're curious to know more about the resort's fascinating history in the heritage quarter and quieter streets, you're sure to have a great time. Young in age or young at heart, Great Yarmouth is Norfolk's premier seaside resort, perfect for relaxing and enjoying yourself.

For the very best seaside chic, candy-floss, ice-cream cones, seafront decorative lighting, amusement arcades, theme parks, donkey rides, entertainment, nights out on the town and beautiful sandy beaches, Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile is the place to go. Play all day and party all night in our upbeat, up tempo seaside quarter.

At the top of Regent Road, where retail therapy begins, shops, department stores and unique boutiques surround the market place, officially the town centre.

For a more tranquil pace, head for the heritage quarter and South Quay, where museums and former merchant's houses face onto the busy port area. With six museums and the second most complete Medieval wall in England, you can have your fill of history, then head to the seafront to whoop down our woooden heritage rollercoaster, the Scenic Railway at the Pleasure Beach or take a more gentle ride on the Snails, firmly part of our retro seaside heritage. 

As night falls, bright lights illuminate the seafront and Regent Road. It's up to you to decide where to eat this evening before enjoying more fun with attractions open in the evening, taking in a show or having a night out on the town.
