Local Heritage

Great Yarmouth is on a thin stretch of land sandwiched between the North Sea and River Yare. For centuries the town’s links were as strong with maritime Europe as with Norwich and London.

Early wealth came from the town's control of the River Yare, which leads inland to Norwich, while its herring industry saw a spectacular boom in the 19th century.

Famously, Robinson Crusoe-author Daniel Defoe thought Great Yarmouth 'infinitely superior to Norwich'. Today, the quayside and the ‘little palaces’ he so admired, is at the heart of Yarmouth’s Heritage Quarter and also where you'll find the town’s excellent museums.
