Fish, ships and snails in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk

Go aboard the last surviving steam drifter, wander medieval walls and a 12th century parish church, and enjoy retro chic at the seaside.

In her day the Lydia Eva Steam Drifter was the last word in modernity, with electric light and a wireless on board. Now fully refurbished, you can go aboard this floating museum moored on South Quay between April and October.

The Lydia Eva is the perfect introduction to the port of Great Yarmouth where you can also find the largest parish church in the country, now a Minster, the second most complete medieval town wall - built to keep the pirates out, as well as Edwardian architecture along the seafront where retro seaside fun can still be enjoyed today aboard the Joyland snails.
