Parking

 

Unfortunately we have sold out of all of our allocated parking permits. Anyone who has signed up for the event after 13th April will not receive a parking permit in their rider packs. We will shortly publish details of free parking that is located a short cycle ride from the event HQ

Great Yarmouth Borough Council have allocated us the use of 1000 car parking spaces in 3 of the town’s car parks. Display your car park pass in your windscreen for FREE parking all day.

St Nicholas car park is the closest, just 450 metres South of the event village. North Drive and Beach Coach Station car parks are situated about 1km to the North of the event. These are the only free parking spaces available to Tour de Broads participants.

Where To Stay

Great Yarmouth isn’t short of guest houses and other places to stay, but remember the Tour de Broads event is on a bank holiday weekend so book quickly. The Official Great Yarmouth Tourism Website lists numerous options with information and pricing options.

Alternatively, why not try the picturesque and grandiose Somerleyton Hall? Located on the Norfolk – Suffolk border, the Somerleyton Estate will be hosting part of the Tour de Broads. The nearby Fritton Arms pub has guest rooms and also holiday cottages and camping at Fritton Lake too.
