Discover sharks, seals and summer fun in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk

From mysterious creatures of the deep to sandcastles and donkey rides, Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile has it all.

Great Yarmouth is the perfect destination for a family seaside holiday where a wide, sandy beach (perfect for dusting the cobwebs off your bucket and spade) stretches as far as the eye can see along the Golden Mile. For the more active little'uns, there's more than enough bouncy castle fun to go around. Plenty of child-friendly cafés line the esplanade overlooking water too, so you definitely won't go hungry!

The Golden Mile is packed with loads of fun activities for all the family to enjoy. Create great holiday memories indoors at the famous Britannia Pier, and out at the coastal theme park, Pleasure Beach - full of family-friendly rides. Marvel at circus antics, let the kids beat you at adventure golf, see worlds in miniature at the model village or relax in the tropical swimming pool.

If you want to stretch your sea legs, take a boat trip to see the seals bobbing in the water. If Mother Nature just isn't on your side, explore the Sea Life Centre where you’ll find penguins, jellyfish, seahorses and the east coast’s largest diverse species of sharks inside a huge ocean tank.
