Sharks, seals and summer fun in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk

From terrifying monsters 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 beach holiday where wide, sandy Central Beach stretches as far as the eye can see along the Golden Mile. Plenty of child-friendly cafés line the esplanade overlooking the huge bucket-and-spade beach. For the more active there are donkey rides and bouncy castle fun.

Between Britannia Pier and the Pleasure Beach, the Golden Mile is packed with loads of fun activities for all the family to enjoy. Create great holiday memories indoors and out at theme parks and adventure golf courses. Marvel at the antics at the circus, see worlds in miniature in the model village or relax at the tropical swimming pool.

Take a boat trip to see the seals bobbing in the sea around you or for marine enthusiasts, explore the Sea Life Centre where you’ll find penguins, jellyfish, seahorses and the east coast’s largest diverse species of sharks in a huge ocean tank.
