Great Yarmouth in Norfolk is locally and more simply called Yarmouth. The only part of Yarmouth that uses the Great (again) is the racecourse which in the 90's went from Yarmouth Racetrack to Great Yarmouth Racetrack.
For centuries Yarmouth was home to the Herring fishers, but lately most people have been employed on the natural gas rigs that are located east of Yarmouth.
Great Yarmouth rail station is the only one left of the 3 that were once located in the city and it has regular services to Norwich. Travel by car is not advised during rush hour as the many roundabouts, junctions and bridges can become gridlocked easily and often. The bus services are more than reasonable with services to Lowestoft, Peterborough and Norwich at very regular intervals.
Because of the seaside location there are a lot of activities in the summer months and a little bit less in the winter months, but thanks to the marvelous buildings here not everything is lost when the days get shorter. In the summer, however, Britannia Pier and Wellington Pier can become pretty busy and the theatre on Britannia Pier is home to acts like Basil Brush, Jim Davidson and Chubby Brown. These kinds of shows will always get people to flock to one of the only pier theatres left in Britain.
