A new all-year round attraction is expected to launch in Great Yarmouth by the summer.

Local entrepreneur Gavin Dean had just finished researching his latest project, opening a brand new set of Escape Rooms in his hometown of Great Yarmouth.

Mr Dean had planned to open Great Yarmouth's only escape room by summer 2020, but like many new businesses, plans were put on hold due to the pandemic.

Mr Dean, said: “The main groundwork has been done.

“We have partnered up with one of the biggest Escape Room Operators in the UK and we know the location [we would like to use]."
