The golden sandy beaches of Great Yarmouth
As part of our ‘Norfolk’ road trip, our first planned stop was Great Yarmouth on the North Sea. Neither Gary nor I had visited there before, but we both had nostalgic memories of days out on similar South Coast seaside resorts with our respective families.
I must admit I was expecting to see a slightly tired & run-down resort, but to my surprise, Great Yarmouth (known locally as Yarmouth) had injected some pride into their town and was giving some of their grand historical buildings a facelift.
British nostalgia through & throughArcades, donkey rides and candy floss
It was great to see the good old classic fun and games still living on.
When you are young crazy golf, donkey rides, miniature trains & arcade machines are all you need & of course, the obligatory pink stick of rock.

If you're intrigued by Norfolk, a UK county with an interesting past, then why not check out "The Little Book of Norfolk". Full of facts and obscure information. It's a fun read on the region.
You can pick it up for your Kindle or in good old hardcover. (Depending on region)
