There are two piers in Great Yarmouth, the Britannia Pier and the Wellington Pier. Both originals were built in the mid- 19th century but have since been replaced and modernised. Both piers are well worth a visit by those spending any time at this fine beach. This area of Great Yarmouth provides everything that you would expect from a lively British seaside resort. The beach itself is a vast expanse of excellent quality sand. A lifeguard service operates during the summer months and the excellent water quality and clean, golden sands make this a popular destination for those fancying a dip in the North Sea or for families with young children who will enjoy playing with bucket and spades. In summer a wide variety of entertainments are organised on the beach. There are boat trips, football and volleyball matches and more. The nostalgic Britannia Pier gets very lively. There is a performing arts theatre and a wide variety of arcades, rides and other entertainments on offer. The Pleasure Beach, which opens for the season towards the end of March has an original 1932 roller-coaster together with traditional rides for young visitors as well as white-knuckle rides for older thrill-seekers. The Pleasure Beach attracts over a million visitors annually.
