GREAT YARMOUTH, Norfolk Cruise Port

The seaside and beach town of Great Yarmouth, England once made its way as a fishing and herring industry town before the business dried up in the late 20th century and made way for the oil companies. In the 1960s, a large amount of natural oil was discovered in the North Sea, prompting Great Yarmouth to set up offshore drilling. In the years that followed they have done their best to offset the oil emissions by investing in renewable energy, particularly wind farms. The town’s otherwise peaceful atmosphere has made it an ideal tourist destination since the mid-19th century when it became a stop on the railroad. The great beaches and fancy resorts remain a huge tourist draw, as well as various sites such as dungeons from the 13th century, medieval churches and town walls, one of England’s oldest and largest marketplaces, and a full-time circus.


  • Venture to the Time and Tide Museum to learn the entire history of Yarmouth from the ice age to present day. It’s located in an old Victorian herring factory which sets the mood for the long period of fishing history.
  • The Merrivale Model Village is exactly what it sounds like: a miniature, intricate village depicting scenes featuring tiny people. It’s a unique, very English, experience.
  • If you’re looking to unwind, the Great Yarmouth Central Beach is a vast, sandy oasis that stretches long distances with the mighty, yet calming ocean always at its side.
  • The grand yet modest Elizabeth House Museum celebrates the Tudor and Victorian families that once lived there. See how life was like in Victorian times both for the royals and the staff who worked below.
