Book Tickets Online


Housed in a Grade II listed 17th-century merchant’s house at the heart of Great Yarmouth’s historic South Quay, The Yare Gallery enjoys expansive views across the River Yare. Exhibitions are hosted across three floors, flooded with natural light from Norfolk’s big skies. Outside, our walled garden offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the nearby Golden Mile.

We celebrate local artists as well as those from around the UK and abroad. Our diverse programme changes regularly, so there’s always something new to see and do.

Entry to the Gallery and all our exhibitions is free.
