Key Areas / Routes

Great Yarmouth Cemeteries TG526083 are renowned for attracting migrants and have held some superb rarities over the years. There are two sections to the cemetery, north and south. From the A47 head east on the B114, turn north onto Northgate Street and then east onto Kitchener Road which bisects the north and south sections of the cemetery.

Great Yarmouth seafront TG5307, between the Britannia and Wellington piers regularly hosts up to 20 Mediterranean Gulls. Head south along the sea front past South Denes to park at the harbour entrance TG533038 where Purple Sandpipers are occasionally seen in winter.

Great Yarmouth Little Tern colony is the largest in the United Kingdom and is at TG532099 to the north of the town. Please do not approach too near the colony.
