Venetian Waterways, Great Yarmouth

The seven-acre Venetian Waterways, Ornamental Gardens and Boating Lake, lie on Great Yarmouth seafront just north of the main visitor attraction area known as the ‘Golden Mile’. A listed park, the Waterways was developed post WWI by local returned soldiers to attract visitors back to the town. Hugely popular for three decades it boasted islands, gondola rides and themed light shows but fell into disrepair and eventual disuse by the 1990's. With a Heritage Lottery Grant, Allen Scott have comprehensively restored the gardens, canals and boating lake and thatched buildings as a new cultural attraction with a social enterprise company running the restored cafe, restaurant and boat hire businesses.
