It was our 1st time to Great Yarmouth and it would not have been complete without a visit to the hippodrone circus. We went with family and had a fantastic time. The show was both entertaining and funny. We will definitely visit again.

Establishment a bit run down. Needs refurbishing. Staff very hospitable and friendly. Circus show very good. Lasts about 2 hours. Clown car drives around Great Yarmouth advertising the venue.
