  • We went to the special event where the kids could use catapults. That was the only bit of the museum that they enjoyed. My son hated the prison cells he is 6 so we didn't really have a look on that floor. We were in the museum for nearly 2 hours and most of that was because of the catapults. The people who work at tollhouse are really friendly and informative. It was worth a look but now I have seen it we won't be going back.
  • Really interesting. Enjoyed reading all of the history of the gaol
  • Historically pretty neat. It is very small though so don't plan to spend longer than an hour here.
  • All ages love it, fascinating!!
  • Worth a visit. Great Yarmouths dark history. Values for money.

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.
