Public Houses and Restaurants: There are too many bars and restaurants in Great Yarmouth to mention here. The closest to the Yacht Station (not just for yachts) where you will moor are The White Swan and the Suspension Bridge which are situated either side of the river near the road bridge. Both offer a good selection of food.

Local attractions: Great Yarmouth is a family entertainment resort with every conceivable pastime on offer including piers, museums, theatres, amusement arcades, a flat well made promenade and miles of sandy beach.
