Great Yarmouth Station

Trains into this Norfolk town ease along the banks of the River Yare. It’s pleasant way to arrive at this scenic seaside resort, whose 15-mile stretch of sandy beach and east-coast sunshine draw vast numbers of visitors during the holiday season, resulting in the added service of 24 passenger trains every Saturday throughout summer. The station itself was formerly known as Yarmouth Vauxhall and opened by the Yarmouth and Norwich Railway in 1844. It was rebuilt in 1960 after extensive damage in WW2. Not far from the real Great Yarmouth station is Merrivale Model Village, perfect if you prefer your railways dinky. One of Great Yarmouth's most-loved family attractions, the miniature railways boasts 350 metres of track and 28 different locomotives, novelty vehicles and associated rolling stock offering perhaps the easiest afternoon of train-spotting available on Earth. Also on the Golden Mile is the Sea Life Centre, a tropical pool, and the Pleasure Beach as well as various tearooms with majestic seaside views.
