Detailed Description

Built in 1596, Elizabethan House was once home to prosperous merchants and the great and good of Great Yarmouth society. It stands today as a testament to four centuries of social and domestic change. Wood panelled rooms, richly decorated ceilings and period furniture tell the story of this quayside house which has survived the fall of the fishing industry, town expansion and bombing raids during the World Wars. The house, its courtyard garden and quayside setting offer the perfect setting for stunning wedding photographs. Ceremonies can be held in two of the Elizabethan House rooms, both with many period features. The Dining Room on the ground floor can seat 25 guests. The Conspiracy Room on the first floor, reputed to be the venue for the signing of the order which sealed King Charles 1’s fate, can seat a party of 40 guests. The property can be hired for exclusive use for half or full days with packages available for wedding breakfasts in association with the nearby Quayside Plaza Restaurant on South Quay.
