Great Yarmouth beach and Wellington Pier

One of the biggest attractions in Great Yarmouth is the seafront itself – or The Golden Mile as it’s known. Spend some time and money playing the penny slot machines in the arcades, watch the horse and carts take visitors for a leisurely ride along the front or promenade along the historic pier.

The seafront is home to bags of family attractions in Yarmouth. Choose from a leisurely game of crazy golf at the Pirates Cove Golf, see some of the world’s unusual creatures at the reptile world of Amazonia or under the sea at the Sea Life Centre.

The Pleasure Beach has numerous rides including the world’s oldest wooden roller coaster, sited close to the Wellington Pier.

There are lifeguards between the piers, on duty from spring bank holiday until the end of September.
