How to get to the Haven Great Yarmouth Air Show

We want to make sure that everyone arrives safely at the Haven Great Yarmouth Air Show so please think carefully about your transport arrangements whether you arrive by foot, by bus, train, coach or drive, well in advance of the event on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June 2018. Online booking for car parking is open now. 

Travel on foot, by bicycle, by bus or coach, on the train or in the car


If you live locally or are staying in Great Yarmouth, please walk or cycle to the event if you can. If you live in Cobholm or Southtown, it's less than a 30 minute walk to the seafront, and far quicker to walk or cycle than sit in traffic. 

Hop on the bus

If you're too far away to comfortably walk or cycle, please use the bus. First Buses will be providing extra services from most towns and villages in the area, dropping off at Market Gates bus terminal, an easy 5 minute walk to the seafront.

Coming by bus also means you can have a few drinks at the beach bar and not worry about having to drive home later. 

Catch the train

Trains will run from Norwich to Great Yarmouth  throughout the day. the journey takes about 35 minutes and it's an easy 15 minute walk from the train station to the seafront. Please note: There is a strike planned for Saturday 16 June but Greater Anglia are planning to run a normal service - please buy tickets in advance to avoid queues at the ticket office. 


Coaches can park at Beach Coach Station on Nelson Road North, NR30 1EN for £9.20 per day. These spaces cannot be pre-booked but will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. This is situated less than 100m from the seafront and takes approx. 15 minutes to walk to the seafront. Overflow space for Coach Parking is currently being explored.

Driving to Great Yarmouth

If you plan to drive to Great Yarmouth, please book your parking well in advance. Two Air Show Park and Ride sites are available, one for visitors coming from the north or west sited at Great Yarmouth Racecourse, and one for visitors coming from the south located at Beacon Park. Transport for wheelchair users from both Park & Ride sites will be available.

A limited number of Premium Parking spaces will be available at the far ends of the seafront on North Drive, on Euston Road and on South Beach Parade. All other seafront car parks will be closed.

If you are thinking of driving, please note that a number of roads near to the seafront will be closed due to the air show. In addition, the majority of residential streets within a 15 minute walk of Great Yarmouth seafront are reserved for resident parking only and cannot be used by day trippers and visitors. It is therefore highly recommended that you book your space in advance at one of the two park and ride sites or treat yourself to a Premium Parking space.
