New Herring Bridge in Great Yarmouth set to open! We are excited to see that the Herring Bridge will open 1st February! Great for our fantastic town and will help people move around especially when viewing our properties! Will cut the journey time from our Great Yarmouth to Gorleston offices! This is the third bridge to cross the River Yare in Great Yarmouth. The Haven Bridge in the middle of town has been there in various form for centuries. The Breydon Bridge opened in the mid 80’s.
