Great Yarmouth Public Art Trail and Market Place Sculpture

As part of a programme of investment and regeneration, Great Yarmouth Borough Council is commissioning a public art trail circular route around the town and a sculpture for the newly landscaped Market Place.


Great Yarmouth has been a seaside resort since the early 1700s. Tourism is big business locally, worth £631m per annum to the area. 28% of all jobs in the area are tourism related. A five-year Tourism Business Improvement District was implemented in 2014 and again in 2019 for a further five years to help grow tourism.
