Great Yarmouth Ice House

Great Yarmouth Ice House


The Ice House was built around 1840 and was used to store ice brought up river, first from the broads and then later from Norway, which was then used to preserve the herring brought in by fishing fleets.

It is a grade II listed building of brick construction with a thatched roof and is believed to be the only one of its kind left in the country.

The Ice House is currently used as a storage facility by SeaChange Arts. Join our Great Yarmouth Heritage Guide for a guided tour of this unique building which is rarely accessible to the public.

Follow up the Ice House tour with a visit to the Drill House in York Road for tea, cake, arts and crafts plus a guided tour of the building.
