We visited the excellent Time and Tide museum were we saw how people lived in 19th Century Great Yarmouth. We saw and smelt herrings being cured and decided that one day we were all going to try kippers for breakfast at Respect.
This was the smoke room and in the chimney above where rows and rows of herring being smoked.
We walked through a reconstruction of the old alleys and lanes of the town where we could look into shops and people's houses. We tried to imagine life without TV, Xbox, mobiles and the internet. It was difficult! Life was hard and seemed very dull. Where those people less happy than us?
After the museum we went through the historic old town, the docks and saw the modern outer harbour. We talked about how life had changed in Great Yarmouth and people no longer earned a living from fishing. Tourism was the main business but maybe there would be many new jobs for Norfolk people from the development of the port and trade with Europe.
Later we went on to see the Nelson monument.
