Great Great Yarmouth
A week away from work and of course a long awaited trip to Great Yarmouth – which at least one of us was looking forward too. Admittedly it might not be a destination that features in those ridiculous “637 Places You Must Go To Before You Die” lists but that’s more to do with the shortsighted nature of those compiling said lists rather than any shortcomings with Great Yarmouth.
We arrived in the throes of the arriving autumn (which was fine by me) to find a crown on a stick (answers on a postcard).
Then followed a trip to “World’s Largest Rock Shop”. Where purchases were made shortly before said purchases were shattered into a thousand pieces in the street outside. Oops.
And then the “House Of Wax” which sternly advises us that “These waxworks are best enjoyed as snapshots in time”.
On a cold, wet October day the “House Of Wax” was a little alarming. More so because (a) I was seemingly the only one there (b) the basement dedicated to murderers and torturers is actually genuinely quite unpleasant and (c) a smoke alarm kept going off leaving me do wonder whether I’d hear “I’m melting! melting!” being cried out in the distance.
That said we enjoyed our trip – some more than others – which also included a tour of the model village (is there anything greater than a model village), a game of air hockey, two piers and more charity shops than quite frankly was healthy.
