In this article, we'll explore the best places to bet, stay, and dine in this delightful coastal town.

The racecourse hosts thrilling horse racing events throughout the summer, offering a fantastic opportunity to place bets and enjoy the excitement of the sport. The track is known for its beautiful setting and a vibrant atmosphere that attracts both locals and visitors.

The Imperial Hotel, overlooking the stunning seafront, is a top choice for travelers seeking a comfortable and elegant stay. With its Victorian architecture and modern amenities, including a spa and fine dining restaurant, the Imperial Hotel provides a touch of luxury for your Great Yarmouth visit. 

Andover House Hotel: 

Located just off the front, heading towards the fun fair, this family-run hotel has some lovely rooms and exceptional breakfast. In fact, they have a restaurant called the Copper Kitchen and bar (a well-kept secret).  A stone's throw from the casino. Andover House Hotel is a fantastic option for adults (no children allowed) ideal for couples looking to enjoy a bit of luxury and quiet time. Being close to the front and the main tourist hot spots it is a perfect location. I've stayed at this hotel many times and it is one of the best in Great Yarmouth.  

The Pub On The Prom Hotel: 

For a more central location, The Pub On The Prom Hotel is a fantastic choice. Situated on the famous Golden Mile, this family-run hotel offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It's an excellent base for exploring Great Yarmouth's entertainment, dining, and betting options. It's opposite the Britannia Pier and on the corner of Regent Street so a lovely prime spot for those who want to be close to the tourist locations. Also, it is part of the Pub On The Prom, you are a few steps from the pub for a afternoon or evening tipple and well-priced meals. A very nice place to people watch as they walk along the front.   

Where to Dine:


If you are looking for luxury and an unforgettable restaurant experience then you will find no better place in Yarmouth. Situated just off Camperdown, near the casino, it's more pricey than most places to eat but you really do get what you pay for. Excellence from start to finish. I won't talk too much about the restaurant or the menu because I want it to be a beautiful surprise. Needless to say, you will have a wonderful evening, fine dining and an experience you will not forget and leave you wanting more. Had many a delightful evening here with host Mimi. Exceptional staff.  

The Regent Restaurant: 

Situated down the very popular Regent Street, which is the main touristy destination for Great Yarmouth. A vast menu which caters for every taste and bar. It isn't fine dining but you will get a good-value meal and enjoy this busy location. 

As you're in a coastal town, it's a must to savor some seafood. The Fisherman's Wharf, overlooking the harbor, serves delicious fish and chips, as well as a variety of other seafood dishes. It's a relaxed, family-friendly restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere.

Great Yarmouth offers a delightful mix of betting opportunities, accommodation choices, and dining experiences. Whether you're visiting for the horse racing, the casinos, or the beautiful seaside ambiance, you'll find plenty to enjoy in this charming town. So, pack your bags, place your bets, and get ready to savor all that Great Yarmouth has to offer.
