Continue through the traffic lights with the Town Hall still on your left. Continue straight and you will see signs to the library on your left. The museum is just after this.


Directions from A12/A143:

Follow the signs to the town centre and seafront. When you reach the Haven Bridge, turn right. Continue straight and through the traffic lights and you will see signs to the Library on your left. The museum is very shortly after this.


Trains:

Trains run regularly from Norwich. On exiting the train station, cross over the iron bridge onto North Quay. Cross over the traffic lights and continue walking with the river on your right and past the Town Hall on your left. The museum is situated just past the library sign at 26 South Quay.

There is a bus station in the centre of Great Yarmouth located at Market Gates. Local buses run frequently from here as do the the X1 and X11 services.
