Time and Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Another exhibit looks at Yarmouth during wartime, with a display on the WWII bombing raids that devastated the town. See unexploded German bombs, and a fascinating range of artefacts from a WWI Zeppelin raid.
The museum provides plenty of hands-on activities aimed at making the past come to life for both younger and older visitors, including puzzles, films, games, and other activities.
VisitingTime and Tide is very well signposted from the quayside area. There are pedestrian signs from all the major streets nearby ad the museum is easy to find. There is no dedicated parking area, but we found it easy to park along the Quayside.
There is a remarkable amount to see at Time and Tide! My favourite part of the museum was the recreation of the 19th century Row. There is also a wonderful display on Yarmouth's maritime heritage. One major focus of the museum is the herring fishery that made Yarmouth one of the usiest and wealthiest ports in Britain for centuries. An old saying says that Yarmouth was built on herring bones, with a good harbour and easy access to the North Sea fishing grounds. The exhibits show how herring was caught, processed, packaged, and shipped to market. Its a fascinating glimpse into the trade that made Great Yarmouth such a prosperous town.
