In picturesque Yarmouth the town's reputation as a 19th century shipbuilding capital rubs shoulders with today's busy life as a fishing port and a popular centre for year round festivals, events and concerts. The Cape Forchu Lightstation, an Atlantic beacon since 1839, is a well-known landmark along with the magnificent Victorian mansions built by successful sea captains. A fascinating array of museums help to tell the tale of Yarmouth's colourful past and present.
