Broadland & Great Yarmouth

This eastern side of the county is home to the magical waterlands of the Broads and the traditional seaside town of Great Yarmouth.

The man-made Norfolk Broads are a National Park with over 125 miles of navigable lock-free waterways. Here you can find out how people have lived and worked in this unique landscape, learn about the the history of air radar defence and see what is probably the largest private collection of steam engines in the UK. 

Great Yarmouth is a lively seaside town with an endless beach, a grand seafront promenade and an historic port area. Museums in the town tell stories of the town’s rich maritime heritage, Nelson, our Norfolk-born national hero and family life from Tudor to Victorian times. Find out about crime and punishment in one of the oldest prisons in the country and visit the world’s last surviving steam-powered herring drifter.
