The property is located with frontage to Blackfriars Road and rear access via Trinity Place. This location is approximately 0.5 miles south of Great Yarmouth town centre, 0.16 miles east from the River Yare and 0.2miles west of Marine Parade and the famous Golden Mile tourist area. The immediate surrounding area is predominately residential in nature. There are also a variety of commercial operations nearby including the Time & Tide Museum, various shops and pubs.

The property comprises an extensive complex of historic buildings centred around a 300 year old fish smoke house of red brick construction with a pantile roof, and other buildings of a similar construction. Part of the Medievel town wall is incorporated into the structure. The whole complex oozes real character with the incorporation of many different types of structural timber - much of this collected with materials and artefacts from the maritime shipwrecks of the east coast. The building is itself a work of art.

The principle public access to the site is from Blackfriars Road where there is an impressive entrance leading to a gallery which is opened all the way up to the top of the 3 storey building. The historic nature of the property has an instant impact.

The entrance then leads into the former museum and shop area which fully incorporates the 300 year old smoke house and the atmosphere provided by it. There is also a 700 year old fresh water well which is a lovely feature. Further to the rear of the ground floor there are craft rooms, workshops and toilet.

The first floor is accessed via stairs and provides further craft areas and galleries. Toilets and kitchen facilities also provided. Stairs then lead to The Gally which is a mezzanine area at 3rd floor level.

Externally there is a fully enclosed courtyard, south west facing providing a lovely environment to sit and relax. Gates lead from this area to Trinity Place where vehicular access is provided with on street car parking.
