Great Yarmouth

Set in one of the UK's best preserved Victorian herring curing works, Time and Tide tells the story of Great Yarmouth from its Ice Age origins to the present day.

Discover the town's rich maritime heritage and its development as a popular seaside resort. Wander down a typical 1913 'Row' and see inside the homes of a local fisherman and his neighbours.

Experience the heady atmosphere of a 1950s fish wharf and take the wheel of a steam Drifter. Hear gripping tales of wreck and rescue and meet some of the colourful characters who made their living from the sea.

Explore the original smokehouses where the lingering aroma of smoked fish is a reminder of times gone by.

Enjoy fascinating archive film shows and hands on displays and relax in the attractive courtyard beneath a canopy of sails.
