There are many ways to reach The Minster, both on public transport and by private vehicle. Our address is Great Yarmouth Minster, Church Plain, Great Yarmouth NR30 1NE.
The railway station is only a gentle 5 – 10 minute walk away. You can access train travel information from National Rail Enquiries.
Bus services around the town and from further afield in Norfolk are frequent and stop nearby as do long distance coaches from outside the county. If you require more information about coach or bus services, then visit Traveline.
Whilst we encourage you to use public transport, if you choose to come by car, parking in Great Yarmouth is generally easy to access with plentiful provision. Of course in the middle of the day during the height of the summer tourist season, there is more pressure on parking spaces.
There is free on street parking on Church Plain outside the Minster gates but it is for a very limited time.
Just across the road from The Minster we have the Market Place pay-and-display short term parking (look to the south of the Minster on the map below where it says Great Yarmouth Market NR30 1LX – restrictions on Wed, Fri & Sat) while accessible from the rear of the churchyard is the Sainsbury’s supermarket pay-and-display carpark (look to the east of the Minster on the map NR30 1NN).
