Visitors can wander through a Victorian ‘Row’ and see inside a fisherman’s home. They can experience the heady atmosphere of the 1950s quayside; take the wheel of a coastal Drifter and hear gripping tales of wrecks and rescues on the high seas. Visitors get to follow Great Yarmouth’s transformation from a sandbank to the present day, through times of boom and bust and times of war and peace.
