I've not been since the 1970s either & it was an ok place then.

I reckon you should enjoy it, its a bit like a larger version of Skegness.

Great Yarmouth has both greyhound and stock car racing at Yarmouth Stadium, Caister, and horse racing at Jellicoe Road. They are worth catching if they are on when you are there. Both stadium have facilities to dine and watch the racing. With your bus pass you can even make it to Norwich for the day.

Not sure if it matters to you but from memory it's all pretty flat. I've not been there for years so can't comment on what it is like other than to say no seaside towns I've been to in recent  years seem as lively as when I was younger but the change may be more me than the resorts. Have a good break.

Pensioners Coach, what fun that will be. No such thing over here, whatever, enjoy yourselves the both of you. Enjoy that crab, I love it. Audrine
