Welcome to Great Yarmouth's oldest landmark and newest Seafront attraction

The Wellington Bowl can be found on Wellington Pier which was originally built in 1853 and rebuilt and reopened Summer 2008.

Whilst retaining its original art deco styling the pier now houses what is undoubtebly the most modern tenpin bowling and entertainment centre in the region which benefits from amazing sea views by being literally on the beach!
