Ride around the fun and excitement of Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile, or enjoy the east coast scenary of wide golden sands and rolling dunes on board our Clipper Cabriolet open top buses.

Our popular open top buses run along Great Yarmouth seafront from Seashore Holiday Park to the Pleasure Beach all day, every day throughout the Spring and Summer, and into the evenings during the summer holidays for an unrivalled ride through the illuminations as the sun goes down.  Calling at the key seafront attractions of Joyland, the Britannia Pier, Pirates Cove adventure golf, the Marina Centre, the Sealife Centre, Wellington Pier, Merrivale Model Village and the Big Wheel as well as many more, there's no better way to travel around the resort.  

And Clipper Cabriolet buses continue all along the East Norfolk coast to Caister-on-Sea (with it's wide sandy beach, lifeboat station and amazing fish and chips), then the holiday camps and resorts of Scratby and California and onto the seaside village of Hemsby with it's amusements, cafes and adventure golf as well as a great family-friendly beach.  

Views from the top deck are amazing, and with our fantastic value day tickets you can hop on and off the bus as many times as you want, with the best savings for families and groups.
