This place is amazing! The story of Great Yarmouth is so well put across here. The old smokehouse it is housed in can still be smelled. The replica of the old Rows is very well done and evocative of early memories. Excellent!

Tucked away on a side street, Time & Tide is a must see. Very interesting and informative look at the history of Great Yarmouth, including interactive displays. I was lucky to visit whilst the “Drawn to the coast” exhibition is on, featuring works by Turner,...More

This museum is tucked away and not well signposted tourist info told us about it. All exhibits are about the town fishing and wartime and how shops were on a narrow street. Loved it. Advertise it more!

What a fascinating museum! (Much of which I remember from my own childhood!). It takes you through several time zones, all of them very interesting and informative! Well worth the time to peruse the whole place! I recommend it to you!
