Great Yarmouth is the biggest traditional seaside town on the Norfolk coast and is one of Britain's most popular holiday resorts. It has been welcoming visitors, holidaymakers and tourists for the last three centuries, and benefits from a long and wide sandy beach and being close to the smaller seaside village of Caister-on-Sea and the popular Norfolk Broads. The seaside town is a throwback to the classic British holiday with ice cream parlours, fish and chip shops and hot fresh donut stalls scattered across the bustling promenade. And the huge sandy beach is an absolute gem too!
