About Great Yarmouth

Wandering down Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile is like stepping back into your childhood. The vintage amusements, the heart-racing rides, the powdery beach; all the traditional seaside favourites are here, refreshed and ready for a new generation to enjoy. With abundant museums, festivals and a popular racecourse too, it’s the enduring family favourite.

Joyland is a Great Yarmouth icon. The funfair has been entertaining holidaymakers since the 1940s and you can still ride the original tubs and snail rides today! For greater thrills, the Pleasure Beach has an 80-year-old wooden rollercoaster along with contemporary rides, like the log flume and sky drop.

Kids will love interacting with the displays at Merrivale Model Village, a beautifully landscaped garden filled with miniature houses, a castle, a railway and even Buckingham Palace! It’s especially magical all lit up at night.

For history, visit the Time and Tide Museum, where excellent interactive exhibits chart Great Yarmouth’s past.
