Guided Heritage Walks exploring Greater Yarmouth
The Greater Yarmouth area has some fantastic history and architecture to admire, and some colourful stories of local characters to go with it! Taking place regularly from May to October, Heritage Guided Walks, led by an official Great Yarmouth heritage guide, are one of the most fascinating ways of discovering more about the town and surrounding area.
Gory Stories on a Wicked Walk explores the area around the narrow Great Yarmouth rows, where fishing industry workers lived almost on top of each other, with wealthy merchants houses at one end and pubs, bars and brothels at the other. Was this a match made in heaven? Join the tour to find out more!
Great Yarmouth is rightly proud of its Medieval town wall, one of the most complete Medieval walls in England. Large sections of wall and complete remaining towers can be seen all over town. This fascinating guided walk explores why the wall was necessary, who came up with the money, how it was built and who got their hands dirty carrying out the hard work.
Following its success in 2015, The Great & The Good Yarmouth walk returns this year taking in some of the spectacular Georgian architecture around the town and Sand, Sea & Spending a Penny is back, as part of the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival exploring the history of our Golden Mile and not forgetting our two fabulous free walks which are part of Heritage Open Days in September.
More information can be found in the 2016 Heritage Guided Walks leaflet.
