Great Yarmouth Hotels
Mini guide to Great Yarmouth
Great Yarmouth is a traditional British seaside town through and through. Besides
its famed 'fish and chips' shops, rich maritime history and beautiful beaches,
this charming town offers easy access to the beautiful Norfolk countryside - unique
to the South East of England.
As well as the traditional seaside offerings, Greater Yarmouth is rich in historical
attractions, boasting the most complete medieval town wall in England. Nearby
Nelson's monument and the corresponding museum commemorate one of England's
finest sea men and traces Nelson's life career and famous battles.
Evidence of Great Yarmouth's long and unique history is spread throughout the
town. Take the popular heritage circular walk to visit the town wall, along
the way you can see the 300-year old smoke house and a pottery kiln built into
one of the surviving towers, and the ancient Norman St. Nicholas church. Exploring
the side streets off Market Place will reward you with many interesting points
of interest such as the fisherman's hospital and the old merchant houses.
At dusk the seafront is the place to enjoy a stroll along the pier and watch
the sunset. And when you're hungry you can dine at restaurants for all tastes
and price ranges. Famous for its illuminations, the seafront offers entertainment
for everyone -nightclubs, cinemas and theatre, with weekly fireworks at central
beach - not to be missed!
In addition to being a seaside resort, the wider area has plenty to offer.
Head north and discover Caister Castle (14th C), home to the largest private
car collection in England. Alternatively the popular village of Filby (en-route
to Acle) was awarded the 'Britain in Bloom Award 2002 for best small village'.
In summer the town is ablaze with colour and activities.
Norwich International Airport offers both regional and international flights.
