Circus, Clowns and Catastrophe. Heritage Guided Walk - Special

Details

A free show in Great Yarmouth pulls the crowds today as much as it did nearly two hundred years ago. In 1845 jostling for a better view suddenly led to a struggle for life when hundreds of spectators plunged into the cold waters of the River Bure while watching a clown’s stunt.

In this ‘holiday walk' led by one of our trained guides, visit the places associated with the catastrophe and find out how, where and why it happened, who the personalities and victims were, how the residents of Great Yarmouth and citizens of England reacted and the legacy it left behind.

Walk Route: Suspension Bridge on quayside to town centre

Duration: 1.5hrs
