As you approach the Minster gates, you will get the first glimpse of England’s largest parish church. Huge Gothic windows and an ancient Norman tower dominate the outside, standing proud in the centre of Great Yarmouth.
A definite attraction worth exploring is the delightful green space of the Minster churchyard. Among its verdant lawns, the myriad gravestones on all sides tell their own private stories, a fascinating record of local history and family sagas for amateur genealogists and historians alike as well as for all visitors interested in the past.
You will find lots more information via the side menu to your left about visiting this impressive, atmospheric church, bigger than many of the UK’s cathedrals.
