Sports and leisure activities in Great Yarmouth

Play - sports of all sorts in Great Yarmouth

Get active in Great Yarmouth

Get active on holiday and let off some steam, with a huge choice of things to do in Great Yarmouth. For sporting enthusiasts, you'll find golf courses, bowling greens and tennis courts to play on.

Hire a bike, download a cycle map for inspiration and go for a cycle ride. The map has six mainly circular leisure routes all designed to make the most of Great Yarmouth's rich and varied scenery. Or have a go at horse riding and gallop through the beautiful countryside.

The Norfolk countryside in the Great Yarmouth area has some great footpaths and walking trails to explore, with coast, countryside and Broads views to admire as you go.

Fishing and birdwatching opportunities are wide and varied, but if you'd rather be on the water than next to it, you can mess about on the river or on the Broads to your heart's content. 

Indoor sports are well catered for too, with several gyms, spas and swimming pools to be found locally.  

There's no shortage of fun sporting activities to do too with ten-pin bowling, indoor children's activity centres and themed adventure golf. 

If watching sport is more your style, Great Yarmouth is the ideal location for race goers, with greyhound racing all year round, stock car and banger racing and horse race meetings at the racecourse.

The Great Yarmouth Bowls Festival takes place from August Bank Holiday to late September on Britannia Bowling Greens, with plenty of seats for spectators.

E-Scooter trial in Great Yarmouth

A trial of e-scooters has arrived in Great Yarmouth to support a greener way to travel. The e-scooters can be hired to get around Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Bradwell in an environmentally friendly way, thanks to a Government trial designed to support a green restart of local travel.

Shorter journeys could be taken using the e-scooters rather than cars which could help to cut carbon emissions.

The scooters and parking bays from authorised e-scooter operater Ginger, can be used by those aged 16 or over, who have a provisional or full driving license. Rides can be hired via the Ginger Shared Transport app, costing £2 per 20 minutes to ride and 50p per 10 minutes to pause.
