Activities, amusements and attractions

As well as being East Anglia's premier beach resort, Great Yarmouth also has a fabulous maritime heritage and a port famous for once being the hub of the herring industry.

Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile is a paradise for people who enjoy seaside entertainment at its best. Indoor and outdoor entertainment venues line the promenade and there are rides and attractions for all ages along the seafront.

You can play adventure golf, ride on giant snails, enjoy freshly-cooked doughnuts, fish and chips or an ice cream, and then head off for a ride on a scream-inducing rollercoaster or take in a superb show or go racing.

Views of Great Yarmouth

The Great Yarmouth area contains wonderful countryside, charming villages, the scenic Breydon Water, and a quieter but no less appealing seaside resort in Gorleston-on-Sea and the vibrant village resort of Hemsby.

Visitors have been coming to Great Yarmouth since the late 1700s and the resort is now one of the most popular in the UK for day trips, weekend breaks and longer holidays, offering all the character of a traditional seaside trip but with a very modern twist.

There are more than 15 miles of sandy beaches within the Great Yarmouth area, all with gentle slopes that make bathing a delight, from the marram dunes of Winterton-on-Sea and Hemsby in the north to cliff-backed Hopton-on-Sea in the south.
