Details

One of Great Yarmouth's best loved family attractions, set in over an acre of award-winning landscaped gardens with streams, waterfalls and lake with Koi Carp.

Sit for a while, escape the hustle and bustle while you watch the Merrivale Railway go by and wonder at the models. Our new model for 2014 is the Merrivale Hospital.

Traditional crazy golf is also included in the admission price.

The popular Old Penny Arcade is where you can hear the 'laughing sailor' and see 'what the butler saw', and not forgetting the Merrivale Tea Rooms, a favourite on the Golden Mile. Delicious food with diabetic, gluten-free and allergy free choices.

OPENING TIMES: 29 March to 2 November 2014, daily from 10:00 (seasonal last admissions).
SUGGESTED LENGTH OF VISIT: 1½ hours.
