Celebrate Christmas and all the fun of the season in Great Yarmouth

Celebrate Christmas in Great Yarmouth on the east coast of Norfolk this festive season with your friends or family. Christmas is certainly looking a little diffferent this year but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy some festivities with your bubble. 

Our new Christmas and decorative lights can be seen in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Hemsby. See the triangle tunnel of light in Great Yarmouth town centre, lights from Great Yarmouth Minster through Market Row, the Market Place and King Street, see some trees twinkle in St George's Park with new lights on the seafront (North Drive) too. In Gorleston, you can see the lights in the High Street and on the seafront including multi colour lights in the bandstand. Hemsby's Beach Road has been lit up for the first time with lighting braids around the street lighting columns. Take a picture and tag us in #DifferentLightGY on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Take the stress out of Christmas shopping in Great Yarmouth, a seaside market town, full of wonderful heritage, with all sorts of shops to be explored surrounding the cobbled market place, along unique Rows, in the Victoria Arcade, along King Street and Northgate Street and in Market Gates shopping mall. Looking to order ahead? Try out Great Yarmouth Market's click and collect service via ShopAppy.

Don't forget, there's free parking after 4pm every day and from 12noon on Wednesdays as well as all day on Saturdays and Sundays in selected Great Yarmouth Borough Council operated car parks, so you can save money on parking that you can spend on shopping for presents instead (up to and including Sunday 3 January 2021).
