Great Yarmouth has some great shopping opportunities just waiting for you to discover, whether you're shopping on a mission for something in particular or in search of some much-needed retail therapy and relaxation. 

Great Yarmouth itself is a traditional market town; a large market place at the heart of the town features a covered permanent market with extra stalls on market day on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Town centre shops and stores surround the market place and line almost every road and street leading towards it. Almost all shops are within easy walking distance of most car parks, and parking is free in most car parks after 4pm every day. 

Additional shopping opportunities can be found in nearby Gorleston-on-Sea where the high street has plenty of shops to browse.

On the main roads between Gorleston-on-Sea and Great Yarmouth, several out of town retail parks can be found, home to some of the larger warehouses such as Halfords and B&Q.

There are more shops to be found in the villages of Caister-on-Sea and Hemsby, which cater superbly for people staying on local holiday parks who want to cook for themselves.

Norfolk is an agricultural county next to the sea, so keep an eye out for fishmongers and local butchers in many of the borough's villages. The baking aroma from local bakers always smells delicious, perfect for sandwiches and picnics. Several large supermarkets can be found if you're wanting to do a large shop all in one go.

If you know exactly what sort of shop you're after, use our handy guide below to look for shops by type, so whether it's jewellery or pet toys, fruit and veg or home furnishings you're after, you'll be certain to find a suitable shop, wherever it is in the area.
