The popular coastal town of Great Yarmouth is East Anglia’s top seaside venue. Set on fifteen miles of wide, flat golden sand with a lively promenade, the town boasts a wealth of excellent entertainment and recreational facilities, sports and shopping. There are two piers, a model village, Butterfly Centre and Sealife Centre to name but a few. Take a stroll along the promenade or take a ride in one of the unique horse-drawn landaus. At night the resort is illuminated and is renowned for it’s live entertainment with a wide variety of shows and concerts. The main shopping streets can be found just off the ancient harbour and offer a pleasant mix of high street stores and traditional seaside shops. The miles of golden sandy beaches have won numerous awards for cleanliness and both the attractive Anchor Gardens and St. Georges Park provide seating for moments of relaxation.
