A vibrant seaside resort with the unique backdrop of the Broads National Park

Wedged between the tranquil waters of The Broads and the raw, wild and wonderful expanse of the North Sea, Great Yarmouth is both a historic port and a vibrant seaside resort. Take a walk around this historic borough and at every turn there is a glimpse of its rich past. However, just a walk, bike ride or train journey away, there is something just as magnificent: a magical landscape, shaped by man but now home to nature – Britain’s largest protected Wetland, The Broads National Park.

Great Yarmouth’s Discovery Hub occupies a prime position on the seafront, right by the popular Sea Life attraction and not only pointing you to the many prime attractions in the town – for example the Time & Tide Museum, the Hippodrome Circus, piers and Venetian Waterways –  and but also to the delights of The Broads just beyond the town centre. Three long--distance footpaths start at Great Yarmouth train station and lead into The Broads via Breydon Water – a large expanse of tidal water where three rivers come together, and an internationally protected water nature reserve, renowned for its birdlife. The long-distance Angles Way footpath takes walkers along the southern banks of Breydon Water while the Weavers Way and Wherryman’s Way follow the northern shore.
