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.
Gorey 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 they were necessary, who came up with the money, how they got built and who got their hands dirty carrying out the hard work.
Following its success in 2014, the Great Georgian Yarmouth walk returns this year, along with other walks, as part of the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival and takes in some of the spectacular Georgian architecture around the town. We are delighted to have two new walks for 2015, On the Warpath - Piers & Bombs and The Great and the Good Yarmouth.
