Great Yarmouth Waterfront Attractions
For Brits, one of the staples of any vacation is the seafront. It has been etched into our national psyche as the ultimate vacation experience. Sea fronts with ice cream cones, fish and chips, docks and the like. And one of the most popular in the UK is the Great Yarmouth seafront.
The promenade of the Golden Mile
Great Yarmouth’s waterfront is sometimes known as the Golden Mile, and it’s easy to see why. The promenade borders the wide sandy beach with many beach huts and changing rooms. The boardwalk itself is wider to accommodate walkers looking to take in the sights and sounds of the shoreline, without getting their feet dirty. Horse-drawn carriages also travel up and down daily taking visitors on trips along the Golden Mile. Or you can kick off your shoes and feel the soft sand between your toes, and even go rowing if you feel like it.
Things to do in Yarmouth
There are plenty of things to do on the boardwalk, from eating cotton candy on the pier to riding the roller coaster at Pleasure Beach Fun Fair Park.
Yarmouth has two different piers to choose from, Wellington Pier and Britannia Pier. The boardwalk has a state-of-the-art movie theater for you to catch the latest Hollywood offerings, Pirates Cove kids’ adventure park where you can discover some buried treasure or be forced to plank walk, and much more.
One of the most popular attractions is the Marine Life Center located right in front of the beach. Here you can learn all about the kind of life that lives under the ocean waves, and most impressively, see some amazing sights of fish, mammals, and creatures that swim in our oceans.
Between the two piers there are plenty of arcades in case you want to have a couple of slots fun, or just want to partake in a bit of people-watching fun.
amazing night life
With a huge collection of restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs, there is no way you will be short of food, drink or entertainment here. The nightlife on Great Yarmouth’s seafront ensures there is something for everyone, with outlets to suit all tastes. There are karaoke bars, fun pubs, and nightclubs open late into the night for visitors to enjoy. Life is never boring here, which makes it a great place to spend your vacation!
