Things to do in Great Yarmouth

It's the biggest night of the week and often the last night of a week-long holiday, so of course you want to end your stay in Great Yarmouth with something of a bang. And during the summer season, there are lots of ways to spend Saturday night here, whether you're a family, an older couple or a Stag or Hen Party in search of a good time. Perhaps, the number one option for family-friendly Saturday night fun would be a night at the Hippodrome Circus. You can treat the kids to an amazing show full of high-wire stunts and some eye-popping juggling at what is Britain's only remaining permanent circus building. The show there starts at 7.30pm.

Live entertainment of a different kind can be found at the theatre on Britannia Pier. The venue plays host to a number of top comics during the summer months, including Jimmy Carr, Jim Davidson,  Sarah Millican and Roy 'Chubby' Brown.. Or if cinema is more your thing, then head to the Hollywood Cinema just over the road from Britannia Pier. Here, you can see all the latest movies with a giant coke to quench your thirst and a big bowl of popcorn in your lap.

But that's only if you haven't already had a meal at one of the seafront''s many popular restaurants - either a curry at Planet Papadum, fish and chips at HMS Hinchinbrook or Fish & Grill, or perhaps a steak at the Charcoal Grill.

Or for a quieter and more relaxed kind of vibe, why not take advantage of the outside tables at the bar at the Wellington Bowl? The Wellington Bowl is Great Yarmouth's 10-Pin Bowling venue - and is situated on Wellington Pier - but you can just pop in for a drink, then sit at one of the many tables outside and watch the moon rising over Great Yarmouth beach, as night-time slowly falls...
