If you want a hotel close to the very best of Great Yarmouth’s attractions with easy links to the Norfolk Broads, Norwich and the very best of the scenic Norfolk Coast.

The Carlton Hotel is right on the town’s seafront with the Sea Life centre and Wellington Pier just across the road. Walk either way along Marine Parade to discover fantastic attractions and numerous cafes and bars serving great food and refreshing drinks.

Venturing a little further from the hotel you can discover the beauty of the Norfolk Broads by taking the train to Berney Arms where you can visit the historic Windmill and marshes that the place is famous for. Historic Norwich is also easily accessible from here for an easy day trip, or for something a little closer, travel north along the coast to the quieter beach at Caister-on-Sea.
