Great Yarmouth was described by Charles Dickens as '...on the whole, the finest place in the universe'. Today it has wide sandy beaches, dry sunny weather, excellent shopping and a lively promenade set amongst otherwise tranquil surroundings. The resort is set on 15 miles of wide, flat golden sand which is perfect for bathing and soaking up the sun. On Great Yarmouth's sea front there are two piers providing a wide range of entertainment, a Model Village, Butterfly Centre and a fascinating 'Sea Life Centre'.
Stroll along the prom or catch the unique horse-drawn landaus which offer a ride in style past the elegant bandstands. At night-time the resort is illuminated and the wide variety of shows and concerts gets into full swing. With its fétes, festivals and carnivals as well as its racecourse and bingo halls, there is never a dull moment in Great Yarmouth.
In contrast, the resort's surroundings provide an aura of tranquil calm. The Norfolk Broads and the East Anglia coastline are made up of river valleys, rolling green fields, secluded woodlands, marshlands and miles of glorious beaches and dramatic cliffs. So, whether it is an action packed week away or a relaxing short break, Great Yarmouth is the perfect destination for an absorbing holiday.
The main shopping streets, found just off the ancient harbour, offer a plethora of high street chain stores, local and traditional seaside shops which offer excellent variety and quality to keep shoppers happy. There is also a large open-air market on Fridays.
Great Yarmouth boasts 15 miles of safe golden sands which have won several awards for cleanliness. The attractive Anchor Garden, so called because of its huge anchor shaped flowerbed and St Georges Park both provide seating for a quiet moment of rest and relaxation.
