Great Yarmouth seafront

Great Yarmouth seafront. It has seen better days, for sure. Despite being fairly busy with people, many of its hotels were closed, as were big attractions like the Winter Gardens. You might imagine at the moment that there should be a revitalisation of places like this, given that people are unable to travel, but perhaps there comes a tipping point where the place becomes so run down that it goes into a terminal decline.

Perhaps it is somewhere that visitors come back purely for reasons of nostalgia: they visited it once when they were young, fifty years ago, and they want to recapture that happiness.

I'm not sure that will be possible in Great Yarmouth today.
