Yarmouth is not really worth a trip for nowadays. It has a lot less aquariums and not that many interesting fish now. IMO it's really gone down hill the last two seasons. It used to be a good Sealife

When the Pleasure Beach is open too, then you can make more of the day, especially when you visit Joyland and Pleasure Beach.
Yarmouth is undergoing major investment with the Entertainment complex at Pleasure Beach, and hopefully in the future we will see other Merlin attractions added.

The operator of Legoland and Alton Towers is to step up the expansion of its theme parks into short-break destinations by adding accommodation and is considering themed hotels in cities where it operates “clusters” of attractions.
