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 yards 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.

Great site

We stayed for the first time at the beginning of August and were pleasantly surprised, great facilities, great location and friendly wardens. So much so that we extended our stay from our 4 night original plan to 8 nights. Plenty to do in the local area.

Grand T

Second stop on our tour. Typical racecourse site, but with a brand new facilities block. Very open site could feel very crowded when full, with pitches three deep in places, but it was quiet when we were there. Great friendly wardens. Don’t forget your levelling blocks it’s very undulating.

Another great stay

Stayed at the end of June beginning of July having used the site a few times before. Arrived and thought the grass had all gone 😂 - it had a desert look, even the pots of plants were struggling because of the dry weather! Lovely greeting from relief wardens the usual wardens returned during our stay equally lovely. Fantastically clean facilities as usual. Short walk out of the site to the dunes and beach for dog walking or human playing! alive with skylarks and terns. There's a protected nesting area. Theres a land train and buses run along the prom into Yarmouth in the summer months, a good level walk along the top or on the beach 30 minutes ish. Bus stop opposite the entry gate just into the housing estate. On site shop sells milk and bits. There is a shop on the static caravan park open 8-8 selling a full range including bakery if the site shop doesn't have what you want. We enjoyed a day at the races, half price entry if you buy from the office, £8 in our case an afternoon meet 7 races. I won my entrance fee back. Soon got the hang of the totes, never been on a race course before or placed a bet! Stakes as low as £1 with the right tote. We were joined by our son and his partner for his birthday, they put a small 2 person tent in the awning space. First club visit for either of them both very impressed. We will be back as Yarmouth has much to offer beyond the front. The Time and Tide Museum is a must and the attached tearoom Silver Darlings worth a few visits! Beautiful fresh offerings. We hired a boat from Potter Heigham for fabulous few hours. Plenty to amuse most folk.
