Hire a beach hut in the summer sunshine and enjoy a few hours on the Great Yarmouth seafront
Great Yarmouth Beach Huts
Don't you just hate doing that awkward English thing at the seaside where you try to put your swimming costume on by wrapping yourself in a towel? Because there's always that terrible fear of flashing your naughty bits at all and sundry, especially as you never bring a big enough towel. But none of that even needs to be a problem here in Great Yarmouth. Not if you hire yourself one of the beach huts from the Beach House Cafe. Situated at the back of the Sealife Centre and in the shadow of Wellington Pier, the Beach House Cafe's fourteen beach huts are the perfect place for getting changed into your bikini, one-piece, trunks or Speedos with no fear of being seen in the buff by total strangers. They're also a great place to sit and have lunch, make a cup of tea and read the Daily Express. So, kind of like a home from home, but right beside the sea.
Deckchair Hire in Great Yarmouth
But if a beach hut sounds a bit fancy for you, then there's always a good, old-fashioned deckchair and windbreak. Both are great to add a bit of extra comfort to a long day of sunbathing and swimming on Great Yarmouth beach. And if you've set up camp near Britannia Pier, you need to go and see Julie at her brightly painted hut. She'll even be able to provide your kids with a range of fun beach toys to use on the sand, as well as looking after your pram for you while you sunbathe or take the kids for a ride on the donkeys by the pier.
Closer to Wellington Pier? In that case, you need to hire your deckchair or sun lounger from Dusty Miller who has been in the business for over 50 years - and has the suntan to prove it. Because there's nothing more relaxing than sticking that knotted hankie upon your head, then stretching out on a sun lounger with a colourful windbreak to protect you from the breeze. It's exactly what Great British seaside holidays are all about - a long day lounging around on the beach with the occasional splash and paddle in the sea.
TOP TIP: If you do fancy a swim and it does start raining. then there's always the indoor swimming pool at the Marina Centre on Marine Parade. It even has its own special wave machine, so you'll feel like you're swimming in the actual sea.
