  • Car collection was superb. Staff around the cars were very knowledgeable and helpful. Castle great to look at. Could have done with a bit more information about it though
  • Great exhibition of cars motorbikes carriages . A bit pricey but worth it , also a visit to the castle is included . Cafe is very good , it's a great day out
  • fantastic collection of cars. well worth the climb to the top of the castle turret.
  • £14 each entry, 'castle' - no explanation other than "this is one of the oldest examples of Brick built castle and therefore grade 1 listed". 'Woodland walk' - pleasant but could have been longer. 'Car collection' - eclectic mix of cars, bikes, China plates, children's toys, and a hip bath.... Interesting, but no real connection. As the majority of the collection seems to have been donated, I'm unsure what the £14 per person admission was for. £1.25 for a cup of tea was a little steep, when other attractions offer £1.50 for a pot. All in all, more information on Google than available on site. Would not recommend.
  • Great vehicle collection . Nice tower to ascend to view the area on a good day

Where to stay in Great Yarmouth

Stay along the city's main pedestrian promenadeto be near the main attractions. A B&B near the central beach, close to the mouth of the promenade, is an ideal spot for views and access to attractions. For a quiet stay, consider lodging farther inland in one of the renovated Victorian buildings.
