Journey fact:

Britannia Pier in Great Yarmouth, UK, once featured an underwater aquarium attraction called "The Oceanarium" in the 1930s. Visitors could descend a staircase and view various marine life through glass windows, including sharks, rays, and other fish species. However, the Oceanarium was closed during World War II and never reopened.

Journey Overview

Now this really is fun! The Clipper Cabriolet bobs along the fun-filled seafront from the Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach to Seashore Holiday Park all day, every day throughout the Spring and Summer and into the evenings during the summer holidays for a unique, fun-filled ride through the fantastic illuminations as sun sets. Great Yarmouth’s the archetypical, thriving British seaside resort that combines scenery with fast-paced, frenetic entertainment and fab holiday season nightlife!

The bus breezes its way along the seafront to the action-packed Joyland, then the Britannia Pier, resplendent in character before passing Pirates Cove adventure golf. Then it’s the Marina Centre, the Sealife Centre and onto the grandious Wellington Pier with its stunning design. The bus continues to the Merrivale Model Village and the iconic Big Wheel, before thrill-seekers can catch their breath and it takes a more tranquil but scenic sojourn through blissful Caister-on-Sea. Onwards to Seashore Holiday Park and then glimpses of the peaceful sandy and shingle retreat that is the beach in Scratby. California beckons and the charming seaside village of Hemsby where there’s amusements aplenty and a great beach to soak up the atmosphere and relax. The views from the top deck are unrivalled and there’s great value day tickets so that folk can hop on and off as many times as they so wish and with awesome savings for families and groups.
