    Caister
    Caister is a couple of miles north of Great Yarmouth on the B1159; or follow the coast road down from north Norfolk for a leisurely drive. Alternatively, if you're lucky enough to get the chance, fly in by helicopter to the town's own airfield, which is used to supply offshore rigs.

    Caister is a busy and growing small town and has quite a surprising history. The first Romans arrived in the town in the 1st Century AD, easily making it one of the oldest settlements in Norfolk. The remains of what they left behind - including part of a defensive wall, a gateway and buildings along a main street - have been preserved and are free to view.

    The remains of Caister castle - a moated castle with a 100-foot tower built in 1432 - are also worth a visit.

    There are also long stretches of sandy beach to enjoy, and you might even catch a launch of Caister Lifeboat.

    Just on the edge of Caister is the deceptively-named Yarmouth Stadium. The busy racetrack holds greyhound racing every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday night, and regularly holds motor racing. Hot rods and bangers also frequently race on the track.
