Families in Great Yarmouth and holidaymakers to the town can enjoy a free ride on open top buses this weekend.

On Saturday, May 21 First Eastern Counties is offering free rides on its Clipper Cabriolet service which returns to the town on Sunday, May 22.

The open top buses are returning after a successful debut summer season last year.

Saturday's free preview tours will start at the bus stop outside Britannia Pier and Joyland.

Bus rides will run every few minutes between 10am and 3pm (weather permitting) and will transport passengers along the Golden Mile to the Pleasure Beach and back again.
