Heritage and arts


Since medieval times, Great Yarmouth has been surrounded by one of the most complete town walls in England. Eleven of the original towers - built between 1261 and 1400 - have survived. Our quaysides along the river Yare showcase fantastic examples of historic merchant houses, while the seafront offers one of the best collections of Edwardian entertainment architecture in the country.

Great Yarmouth's outstanding culture and heritage mean that it is a future ambition for the town to become a key cultural destination. Visit the heritage pages of the Visit Great Yarmouth tourism website for more information (opens new window) or, to find out about some of the work that is carried out on our historic environment, visit the website of the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust (opens new window).
