10 Things To Do In Great Yarmouth

Wondering what to do and see in Great Yarmouth? Take a look at these 10 things to do in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth is a coastal town in Norfolk and is a popular holiday destination for many tourists. I used to visit many a time as a kid in the summer holidays when we would visit my Grandparents who live in close by, and have many memories from those fun days out. I'd love to take my kids some day to re-live those memories. Are you planning on visiting Great Yarmouth? There are many places of interest and it's packed with a huge range of attractions, beaches and things to do and see whatever the weather.

Wondering what to do and see in Great Yarmouth? Read on...

1. The Pleasure Beach in Great Yarmouth itself is one of Britain's top tourist attractions, effortlessly combining modern high-tech rides with all the fun of the fair. 

2. Enjoy Great Yarmouth attractions; play crazy golf, have a go at pitch and putt, or back the winner at the horse or greyhound tracks. Let off steam on the beach, have a donkey ride or go to see the seals. 

3. Take the kids to Joyland, a fun theme park for younger children which includes many rides, a huge toy town mountain, jet cards, a undersea fantasy ride, pirate ship and balloon wheel just to name a few.

4. Why not jump in the car to see leopards and tigers at Thrigby Wildlife Gardens which is one of Norfolk's top Zoo attractions. There are 250 year old landscaped gardens, several play areas for children and a superb willow pattern garden to explore.

5. Or perhaps visit some less scary animals at Pettitts Animal Adventure Park which is a great day out for all the family. There are rides for young children, plenty of entertainment for all the family, exotic and domestic animals and birds to see as well as many animals to feed and pet.

6. Great Yarmouth has some truly great things to see - get up close and personal with sharks at the Sea Life Centre, go back in time at Time & Tide or explore the remains of shipwrecks at The Potteries. 

7. Visit Yarmouth attractions like the seafront Marina Centre for a dip in the tropical pool or go ten pin bowling on Wellington Pier overlooking the waves or down Regent Road.

8. Merrivale Model Village is one of the best model villages in the country, with an outdoor garden railway, streams and even a waterfall. Afterwards why not go and visit the penny arcade for a go on the old slot machines. Well worth a visit.

9. How about a day out at the Pirates Cove Adventure Golf? Great fun for all the family, suitable for pirates of all ages, this 18 hold golf course will entertain the kids. Putt your way through caves, over footbridges, under cascading waterfalls, all amidst a fun-filled atmosphere and enchanting pirate lore.

10. Lastly, you can't visit Great Yarmouth and not visit one of their many beautiful beaches. Gorleston Beach is definitely one of the most popular amongst locals and tourists. A wonderful clean beach for all the family. Great for a long walk or for building sandcastles on a sunny day.

Come rain or shine, there's plenty of attractions and things to do and see in Great Yarmouth for everyone.
