There are only a handful of shops and restaurants open in the winter, but a stroll through the area is well worth it. Definitely designed for a summers trip.

Long stretch parallel to the beach bringing everything you expect of an English seaside town. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, chippy’s, ice creams, amusements and tacky gift shops. Lots to see and do and yes you can have fun. The downside is that at night it becomes...More

Some great arcades and little bricked bracket shops. Some great family entertainment all round especially on a good day. Can be VERY busy and parking is at a premium with high parking charges. Out of season restrooms are closed very very early - around 4pm......More

This is a very good hotel for a short stay. On the main road along the seafront of Great Yarmouth. The people are very friendly, the room is comfortable and, for a single, couldn't be much larger. At £45 a night, it's as cheap as...More

Questions & Answers
i thought trip adviser took fake reviews seriously. I have been reading this for ten minutes and it is constant plagiarism, e.g ( promenade nice and flat, lots of SLOT MACHINE, eateries, blah guff blah.) if anyone who can read spot found a ball can realize 90% of these reviews are pants. I thought this was meant to be a serious site where you can get truthful honest reviews of places around the world. I think this site should have its own review letting guff like this in. Over and over. ( just look at pics and style and grammar). This comment will be forwarded to Trip adviser also so i suggest you get your comments and reveiws in order. I.e.....(dirty toilets, car park too expensive so didnt spend any time looking around) wow... that got you 4 stars. well done. Lets hope someone flushes the joint down the toilet before that person visits again. Might get a full five stars.
