Great Yarmouth

Night owls, history buffs and nature lovers alike will love a trip to this bustling, historic seaside resort. The town itself boasts racing, theatre, six museums, and the most complete medieval town wall in England. Meanwhile, down at the seafront, you can enjoy a whopping 15 miles of pristine golden sands.

Sandcastle rating

There are 11 beaches to choose from but Central Beach, bookended by two piers, has superb bucket-and-spade potential.

Surf’s up

Surfers tend to head south to Gorleston-on-Sea to catch a wave.

Don’t miss

All things Horatio Nelson – including a lock of his hair and a life mask – are on display at the Nelson Museum, dedicated to the region’s most famous son.


The Seafood has a florid interior but you’ll forgive it for the fresh seafood.

Rest sun-kissed limbs

Set in a quieter part of the famous seafront, the Imperial Hotel is comfortable and unfussy, with an always smiling staff.

Great value train fares

Avoid the hassle of driving, parking and car park charges by taking the train. There are many Off-Peak fares which are really good value. What's more you can save as a group with Groupsave. A third off when you travel as a group or 3 or more.
