Y – Yarmouth

The River Yare rises close to the village of Shipdham  and then winds eastwards towards Norwich. The mouth of the Yare at Great Yarmouth is some thirty navigable miles from the City of Norwich. Having tried one or two treks along river banks, The Thames and Lea completed The Wherrymans Way looks an interesting diversion for this Autumn.

The port at Great Yarmouth, on the South Quay there are museums and an old steamer on which you can book a day at sea, for a princely sum, they do let you look around for free!
Barn & Beach haven’t visited The Time & Tide museum but have heard good things, one to visit this summer. We have tried a mackerel trip from and old RNLI boat that books from the quay, great day bobbing about on the briny North Sea. Take a good pack lunch in case the fishing is slow?

Yarmouth certainly has other livelier pursuits if you like a gamble, casinos, dog tracks and the horses could be a winner? One thing we have noticed is that this is a different Norfolk, the promenade, the fairground attractions, cinema, eateries and pubs attract day-trippers and holidaymakers in their droves, now all points west may be somewhat more sedate but the people certainly look happy here, really enjoying a traditional English seaside day out a tonic for the troops?

Put down that cappuccino and panini and enjoy a different Norfolk at Great Yarmouth.
