Gorleston’s popularity has grown in recent years thanks to its installation of pastel, picturesque beach huts, which have proven popular with both locals and tourists, a fabulous bay with lifeguards on duty throughout summer months and numerous opportunities for free parking in the area.
With travel in recent times being very different to previous years, many travellers chose staycations in the UK over flying abroad for their holidays, even after restrictions eased. Many locals also chose to stay closer to home for their holidays which meant a newfound appreciation for their local attractions.
Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: “Being awarded the Travellers Choice Award is a great honour and one that Gorleston deserves. We are very lucky to have such a stunning beach within our borough, which is one of many, and I’m glad tourists who have visited, perhaps for the first time, were left with a great impression.”
