Great Yarmouth

Did you know that Great Yarmouth has a rich and proud maritime heritage and was once one of the wealthiest towns in Britain on account of its prosperous herring fishery. Norfolk born Horatio Nelson also has very strong connections with Great Yarmouth.

Our most obvious attraction is our clean, sandy beaches. They span a total of 15 miles, from Winterton-on-Sea in the north to Hopton-on-Sea in the south.
