Time & Tide
Tolhouse Gaol

two Event Venues in the heart of Great Yarmouth

The award-winning Time & Tide Museum is set in one of the UK’s best-preserved Victorian Herring curing works, offering an alternate venue to host corporate gatherings and private events with a historic twist in the heart of Great Yarmouth.

Following a multi-million-pound re-development, the Time & Tide museum offers a unique wedding venue in Norfolk. A modern meeting area is combined with the rich history you would expect from a museum of national significance.

The museum tells the story of Great Yarmouth’s rich maritime and fishing heritage as well as revealing some of the area’s more colourful characters who made their living from the sea.

If you’re looking for a wedding venue in Norfolk that will help make your day memorable and offer interesting and unique photo opportunities, then the Time & Tide museum could be the perfect place – whether you have an affinity with the sea or just like the appeal of a quirky wedding venue.

Private Hire & Corporate Events

The Education Centre within the museum offers a modern meeting room for up to 40 delegates, perfect for hosting conferences and talks with the added benefit of complimentary audio and projection facilities.

The airy courtyard offers a unique sheltered space for groups to utilise for meeting breakouts. The spectacular canopy of sails is quite a sight, accompanied by an array of historic fishing boats for an unusual and comfortable setting. This award-winning museum is a perfect private venue for evening summer gatherings, wedding and much more.

Private tours can be arranged at an additional fee to the venue hire rate. If you would like the expertise of the venue staff in full period dress to offer that added historic touch, then this is also available.

Over the years pirates and robbers alike have called the Tolhouse Gaol home and the notorious dungeon, known as ‘the hold’, puts new meaning to the vow ‘to have and to hold’.
