Best Things To Do & Days Out In Great Yarmouth

The list of things to do in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk’s top resort, won't disappoint with more than 15 miles of golden sands to enjoy.

The well-named Pleasure Beach is an extensive leisure park packed full of family attractions and entertainment, overlooking Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile. Entry is free, so you can come and go as often as you please. Brave the Haunted House, the Big Apple Coaster and enjoy the 4D cinema.

Discover the world beneath the ocean on this Great Yarmouth family day out by visiting Sea Life Centre. Teeming with underwater life, there’s so much to see and discover as you walk around more than 40 displays including a huge 250,000-litre tropical ocean display.

For more wildlife of the furry kind visit Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens and meet monkeys, pandas, birds, big cats and much more. Learn all about the conservation work they support and how they protect their local environment.

There’s much more fairground fun to be had over at Joyland, where family friendly roller coasters mix with more traditional rides, a rich history and a great view overlooking the sea.
