A bright and breezy scene greeted me at Great Yarmouth for this summer re-visit. The rides were in full flow on the promenade and the pier was full of visitors. A low tide allowed me to enjoy the acres of golden sand, by the Britannia Pier. There is everything to hand in nearby Great Yarmouth, yet the beach feels natural and isolated by the waterline at low tide, looking out over a blue sea.
A world of memories for Chris, on the beach at Great Yarmouth.

Great Yarmouth is Norfolk’s most popular resort. It has a long, soft, sandy, wide beach, but the tide doesn’t retreat far. The length of the beach means that you can always find a secluded spot or mix with the massed summer holidaymakers. Yarmouth is loud, bright and brash. There’s plenty of action to enjoy in the town, with diverse shops and a vibrant nightlife.
The beach as an important link for Mollie, through time.
