•Two RuPaul’s Drag Race Stars Highlight Great Yarmouth As This Summer’s Must-Visit Resort
•Visit Great Yarmouth Reveals A Glamorous Itinerary For The Drag Race Duo
When it comes to seaside resort realness, there is just one place to go – Great Yarmouth.
That is the verdict of two of the stars of BBC hit RuPaul’s Drag Race who have highlighted it as the jewel in Norfolk’s seaside resort crown.
The sometimes-spiky Baga Chipz, who came third in the very first series of the show, said: “There is no need to mess about with passports, flights, covid tests and all that nonsense when you can just hotfoot it to England’s finest – Great Yarmouth.”
Meanwhile fellow finalist Ellie Diamond said: “You can just breathe in that balmy British sea breeze and enjoy a blissful beach break on home turf.”
So where could the likes of Baga and Ellie visit? Visit Great Yarmouth has come up with a few suggestions
If you need an eleganza extravaganza in Great Yarmouth, where better to stay than the £280-per-night Britannia and Trafalgar suites at the Marine Lodge with a king-size bed, a well-appointed bathroom, and a deckchair-bedecked balcony with views of the resort’s golden beaches?
They love uniqueness, and where is more unique than the Hippodrome Circus? One of only two working circuses left in the country, it attracts some of the top-performers from around the globe, some of which are too challenging to be a Drag Race Talent Of Choice.
Bea and Ellie can say Condragulations to Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach. Fresh from winning a European award for their special events, they can get VIP access to the park’s Coaster Cabana event running on summer holiday Saturday nights which sees the site transformed into a tropical paradise with DJ’s, speciality acts, dancers, and cocktail bars.
They can Start Their Engines for the seven-mile trip along the coast to Hemsby. The village boasts wide golden beaches, great places to eat, and Beach Road boasts a host of attractions which has gained it the unofficial title of the Las Vegas of Norfolk.
They may need nerve (but not necessarily talent) if they jump aboard The Big Wheel. The seafront attraction lets you enjoy the beautiful seafront views and are the ultimate backdrop for a super-seafront-selfie.
Drag Race contestants may talk Squirrel Friends. Great Yarmouth can come close with snail-friends at Joyland. Take a ride on the iconic characters at the park which is perfect for the resort’s young (and young-at-heart) visitors.
Baga and Ellie can be the ultimate Glamazons on a visit to Merrivale Model Village. They can tower over the mini community-within-a-community on the seafront seeing the tiny buildings and people that make up the perennially popular seafront attraction.
If they are going to sashay away to Great Yarmouth, a walk down the Britannia Pier is needed. The spectacular views and wide range of attractions make it a must visit. Who knows, they may be invited to perform on its iconic stage?
