Things to do pre Easter in Greater Yarmouth

As the weather starts to get a little bit warmer and the days get longer, there's no better time for a late winter or early spring break to Great Yarmouth. Take a few days off, venture to the seaside and relax with fresh sea air and wintery sunshine. 

Enjoy a late winter break as signs of spring start to emerge in Greater Yarmouth

As the weather starts to get a little bit warmer and the days get longer, there's no better time for a late winter break to Great Yarmouth. 

A great choice of walks are the perfect reason to get out and about as snowdrops start to flower and daffodils poke their heads through the soil. 

Our east facing beaches are stunningly beautiful at this time of year when the sun rises a little bit later, perfect for a late morning walk and even better if there's a nearby café for a hot drink after.

Winter pub grub is at its best when there's a roaring fire on the go, with several mid-way round or at the end of a good walk. Afternoon tea is always a real treat, even better if it's served at a location with a beautiful Norfolk view. Or how about a trip to the spa in Caister-on-Sea for the perfect way to unwind and relax?

Several local attractions are open all year round including the zoo, animal sanctuaries and aquarium and Time and Tide the award winning museum. Market Day takes place every Wednesday and Saturday if shopping is your favourite past time.

To brighten up your evening, go out for dinner, watch a show or go to the cinema, there's lots on
