Here is some background information and links for your information about Great Yarmouth.


Great Yarmouth is a traditional seaside resort on the East Coast of Norfolk. It is on the mouth of the river Yare around 20 miles east of Norwich


Great Yarmouth was a very important Roman town, but back in those days it was not even there!! What we mean it that what is modern Great Yarmouth is on a sand bank that formed over 800 years ago. Back in Roman times the coast was quie a way inland from what it is today. There are great Roman forts at Burgh Castle and Caister which were then on the sea!


In medieval times the town was quite small and had a wall around it. Many parts including the towers can be seen as you go around the town. A trip to the market place will reveal a restored section of the wall. Also along Blackfriars road is a large section and some of the old towers


More recently Great Yarmouth was a fishing town, this died out in the early 1900's. The tourism part came to promience in the mid Victorian era and really exploded at the turn of the century in the Edwardian era.


Great Yarmouth has had it's up's and downs and in the late 1980's and early 1990's fell from grace as a great British seaside resort. However much money has been invested in re-generating the town, the seafront areas have been re-developed, attractions added and improved and more is on the way. Great Yarmouth has gained one of the 8 regional casino licences and soon that will be come a reality. The £45m outer harbour has just opened, and more is on the way. Now Great Yarmouth is fast rising back to the top of the British Seaside holiday destinations in the Uk.
