    We love Merrivale and have visited at least once a year (Covid allowing) for the past few years. It's a lovely little park with a range of themed model buildings and railways. It's a low low tech family attraction and we like it largely for that reason.
    A lovely feature is the offer of free return within the same week when you visit once.

    Absolutely amazing experience! If you want to learn about Great Yarmouth this is the place. The history of herrings and the Rows. Incredible.

    There is so much to do at the Pleasure Beach depending on your age. There are well tended gardens and lots of different activities so make sure you bring your wallet!

    Had a lovely morning. The children had fun completely a quiz and watching the sealife.
    Every member of staff we met were friendly, knowledgeable and engaging with the children.

    Worth a visit.

    We visited Gt Yarmouth too early in the season for the bigger seafront theme park to be open and were pleasantly surprised to find Joyland up and running. It was very quiet on the day we visited. The staff were all polite and friendly and the rides were reasonably priced. Our 10 year old son had a lovely time. He particularly enjoyed the Snails :-)

    Oh how I love a sandy beach!

    The Central Beach in Great Yarmouth is perfect. Just a short walk from the town centre and down Regent Road is a colossal stretch of golden sand. There are stores nearby selling all sorts of things you will need if you want to build sandcastles.

    On the day I visited I was very pleased to find the beach was clean and there were quite a few other people enjoying the sand too.

    Lovely quiet sandy beach, with a promenade along the cliffs with wonderful views. A haven away from the noise and bustle of Great Yarmouth just a couple of miles away.

    Firstly the negatives. Parking is cash only and doesn’t give any change, in this day and age can’t believe you can’t pay by card either by ringing a number or via the machine. A few people just left as they didn’t have any change. Car park itself is decent size sadly the toilets were closed, there is some public toilets on high street a short walk away if you need them. The positives, beach itself was wonderful, we went at around 12pm on a Monday (kids were at school) and beach was pretty much deserted. Big stretch of sandy beach for the dogs to run on and we ended up walking to California and back. Seen other comments regarding dog poo everywhere, but can’t say I saw much at all, maybe a couple in two hours walking. We had a seal follow us in the sea which was great to see. When we got back to the car walked up to the brilliant fish and chip shop (yes that’s its name) and had a decent fish and chip lunch on the beach. Can’t say what it’s like in high season but for us it was a nice way to spend the afternoon just shame about the car park.

    Six middle aged friends visited this gem of a National Trust site, and although it is definitely one of the smaller National Trust properties it is still full of treasures. We spent an hour here and it was so worth it. It was a real great start to our day trip to Great Yarmouth.

    We stayed at the racecourse campsite for the Easter Week, site was quiet even when half full. Facilities are always clean and tidy. the ground is very sandy so putting awnings up is not a problem. The town is around a 20 minutes walk, our 7 and 9 year old found it fine. if you are taking kids the Hipperdrome circus is well worth a vistit.

    Britannia Pier has a variety of things to do. There is the theatre which is advertising different performers. Some are a little questionable (!)

    As well as the theatre there is a bar and amusement arcade. There are also places to get snacks and something a little more substantial.

    It's always good to take a stroll along the pier and enjoy the scenery from there.

    The Minster at Great Yarmouth is an imposing building in a good setting built originally around 1101 and is England’s third largest parish church The ceilings are fabulous. All very well maintained with an imposing organ. Parking was easy

    Lots to see and do. Typical British seaside stuff - amusements, crazy golf, rides, plenty of cafes, piers to walk along and a fantastic sandy beach. A lovely atmosphere, helped in part by the sunshine we had when we were there!
