Having not been to Great Yarmouth for many years, I was pleasantly surprised to find it clean and thriving, unlike many other seaside resorts around the UK. We picked on Yesterdays World to see something a little different during our visit and found it most enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Everything about the entire experience was superb - great value for money, fun for all the family and a great day out!

We cannot wait to visit in a year or two when we can spent longer looking at the artefacts...our children are 2 years old and 11 weeks old - so in a year or two it will be great to spend more time with them inside this amazing experience!

Thank you to you all!

If you want to go back in time then this attraction is for you. So much to look, check out the mirrors near the carousel you will get some really funny photos. You are able to step inside the mock up shops and see all the old grocery products which bought back some memories! We had lunch in the cafe afterwards which was nice and then walked around the shop where they sell all old fashioned sweets and toys. If you visit Great Yarmouth make time to visit this attraction you will love it.

Visited this attraction yesterday(no pun intended) and we found it to be quite good. Serving a dual purpose of Museum/Tea room, we found the premise of looking at artefacts of yesteryear combined with an old fashioned tea service afterwards worked for us and we did not pay any more than £18 for the pair us to
visit the museum and have tea afterwards.
