Season: summer

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.

Season: autumn

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.

One thought on “Great Yarmouth

  1. Keith

    The beach means the dream and a goal of being able to retire and live on a beach that had everything on it that I needed, in close proximity, where I would never have to drive again, never wear shoes, had a temperature that only required me to wear shorts and have the pleasure of feeding the seagulls every morning.
