Visit the historic Norfolk fishing port with its unique narrow ‘Rows’ streets, proud maritime past and old penny arcade.
Set on a sandbank between the North Sea and the River Yare, the quickest way to get from Great Yarmouth’s town centre to the quayside was along the ‘Rows’ - narrow streets just 34 inches wide in places, housing wealthy merchants’ houses between fishwives’ dwellings, bars and brothels, making for a heady mix.
Find out more about Great Yarmouth life and the riches that the herring trade brought to the town at the award winning Time & Tide museum, or visit a real Row House courtesy of English Heritage at Row 111.
For heritage fun head to the seafront to play on the Old Penny Arcade at Merrivale Model Village where there are over forty beautifully preserved, fully functioning old penny arcade machines.
