Visit Gorleston

Gorleston is a seaside town in a bay just south of Great Yarmouth and north of Lowestoft (Suffolk) on the coast of Norfolk, from which it is separated by the River Yare. it is also known as Gorleston-on-Sea.

Gorleston is well known for its high quality sandy beach, and its Edwardian architecture, a consequence of its great popularity at the beginning of the 20th century.

Very much a traditional British seaside resort, Gorleston has an attractive promenade following along the seafront, backed by villas converted into hotels and guest houses, and well maintained gardens, along with lots of seafront shops and cafes (the town centre also has many 'high-street' type shops).

As you would expect you will also find bingo, amusements, mini-golf, paddling pool, bowling greens, seaside theatre, children's playgrounds etc in Gorleston - and plenty of other attractions to help make this a popular base for a beach-based family holiday, quieter than its northern neighbour at Great Yarmouth. There is also a small harbour and a yacht pond so you can sit and watch the booats sailing in and out.

A little to the south of Gorleston there is a popular golf course.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Norfolk guide and the Norfolk guide.
