Why stay here ...

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site is located in an excellent position next to the racecourse should you fancy a flutter and the famous 18-hole golf course offers hours of leisurely pleasure. The caravan site is a mere 300 metres from the seafront, with a bus stop just outside the site entrance making it perfect for sunbathing in summer and long relaxing strolls. Also within the lively holiday resort of Yarmouth, visitors have access to a self-contained six-acre pleasure beach complete with countless traditional seaside attractions to delight both young and old.

With a bus stop just outside the site entrance there are many attractions within easy reach of Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site including the Yarmouth Time and Tide Museum, the Sea Life centre and Thirgby Hall Wildlife Gardens, which houses an interesting range of big cats, crocodiles and other reptiles. Moving inland from the caravan site you will discover the Broads, popular for romantic boat cruises and the rolling unspoilt beauty of Britain's newest National Park. Great places to visit during a day trip to the Broads include the National Trust site, Horsey Windpump and nearby coastal town of Sea Palling, which boasts a sandy Blue Flag beach.

Tired site

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Caravan Club Site
We were booked in for 4 nights but moved after 2. Site is tired and only has one facilities block which would be overwhelmed if the site were full. Very exposed and when the weather blew in you felt every gust of wind - many awnings had suffered in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. The walks from the site were limited for us. Visited The Avenue public house nearby and am very surprised it rated 4.5 on trip advisor.

Great site

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Caravan Club Site
As usual a very friendly welcome from wardens ,having been a regular visitor over the years the site has always been well run toilet facilities always kept very clean even before COVID .It’s a pity the club can’t do something about the pitches re lack of grass but I don’t think that puts members off.Plenty to do in area ie Visits to the Broads or Yarmouth itself.All in all a great site .

A Surprise

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Caravan Club Site
I was pleasantly surprised having stayed on other race course sites over the years. The Toilet block I consider the best, modern clean, but a little step back in having plastics stools in the showers, a bit of a surprise where refurbished showers are provided with a bench. The beach in one direction or the park and river in the other direction, both within a few minutes walk for the nimble, a little longer for those of more senior years, both great for relaxing. I'm always a bit suspicious when there are no separated recycling facilities on site. We are told place everything in one bin, and it's sorted after collection by the appointed external, local authority contractor! Really? Biggest down on this site, the sandy ground, what a mess can be created when the ground is damp. Wet sand accompanied by dead grass/weed/moss gets stuck to anything that comes into contact with it. Biggest up on this site, The Wardens, most helpful and doing a brilliant job

Great site

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Caravan Club Site
We had a warm welcome at Great Yarmouth from the Wardens. The site is big and very open but there is a good space between each pitch. The ground is sandy and therefore easy to pitch an awning. It is a great place for the beach at both Great Yarmouth and Caister on Sea with good walks to either. There is a short walk to the Greyhound Stadium and it also doubles as a stadium for Banger Racing. We enjoyed our time here and would recommend it.
