Before developing as a seaside resort, Great Yarmouth was predominantly a fishing town. Herring fishery was vitally important for the local economy, but it experienced a steep decline in the second half of the 20th century. Today, the industry can be declared extinct.
Oil was discovered in the North Sea in 1960, which led to the revival of the town. Today, local authorities have started putting emphasis on the use of renewable energy sources. Yarmouth maintains its reputation as a beach destination, and visitors continue travelling to the Norfolk resort every year.
Some of its most popular attractions include the main tourist sector on the seafront, the narrow streets, the Great Yarmouth railway station and the 13th century Tollhouse with its spooky dungeons.
It is one of England’s premier seaside destinations with fun for everyone. Search for the best and cheapest guest houses or b&b’s and seafront hotels convenient located for Britannia Pier, the town centre and the beach, and ideal located for Caister Soul weekends, race meetings, the heliport, restaurants and local attractions. The beaches are spectacular and fish and chips served in town is amazing.
The beautiful Norfolk countryside features traditional old windmills, wind pumps and the cruisers on the rivers.
