Best Norfolk and Suffolk piers
A focal point of Great Yarmouth’s seafront, Britannia Pier is known for its live entertainment shows, traditional seaside delights, tasty treats and more. The theatre puts on a variety of performances throughout the year and has played host to such family entertainers as the Chuckle Brothers.
That’s right – Great Yarmouth has not one, but 2 piers! Also stretching out towards the sea from the town’s busy Golden Mile, Wellington Pier houses an amusement arcade, casino and bowling alley, as well as kiosks, a cafe and bar.
Known for its crabs, Cromer is also renowned for its Grade II-listed Victorian pier. In fact, crab fishing from its outer railings is a popular family activity in the summer. The beautiful pier is also home to a restaurant, bar and theatre, where the world’s one and only full-season end-of-pier show takes place, making it one of Norfolk and Suffolk’s best piers.
Another resort with 2 piers, you get double the seaside fun in Lowestoft! Claremont Pier has a live music venue, a Fun Palace and casino featuring lots of different amusement machines for the whole family, and a roller skating venue that’s open all year round. The pier also houses a dining room and bar, as well as Scott’s restaurant, which serves those all-important fish and chips!
Lowestoft’s South Pier has a variety of amusements in its arcade, as well as a gift shop. Plus, there’s 10 pin bowling, takeaway fish and chips, ice cream, a restaurant, and the Fisherman’s Wharf pub with its fully-licensed bar and live entertainment.
A beautiful Suffolk seaside town, Southwold has many attractions in its midst, including a working lighthouse, pretty beach huts and a busy harbour. One of the town’s most popular features is its award-winning pier. Originally built in 1900, the pier was damaged by a storm in 1934 and again during World War II. However, it was brilliantly rebuilt and refurbished from 1999-2001 and now welcomes hundreds of visitors for food and fun as one of the best East Anglian piers.
