Great Yarmouth Row Houses and Greyfriars' Cloisters

Group visits to Great Yarmouth Row Houses

Step into centuries of fishing-port life in these unique and vividly presented houses - rare survivors of Yarmouth's once crowded 'Rows'. Originally built for wealthy merchants (one still has spectacular Jacobean ceilings), they were later divided into humble fishermen's dwellings. One house is now presented as it was in 1850 and 1890, the other in 1942, just before it was struck by a Second World War incendiary bomb.
