About Cromer

Famous for delicious Crab for which folk still travel for miles to catch fresh, or buy from the quayside. To this day Cromer still displays an aura of Victorian and Edwardian charm that made it a popular tourist destination in the 18th and 19th-century. It remains very much a family resort with an appealing sandy beach, fine pier, pleasant gardens and colourful promenade. The history of the town is inextricably linked to fishing and the gallantry of its lifeboat crew is well documented in the Lifeboat Museum, housed in the old lifeboat house. Cromer Museum is housed in a row of enchanting fisher men's cottages, near to the church. As well as showing crabbing industry displays, Cromer Museum records much of local history.

Cromer parish church has a magnificent interior and at over 160ft, it's tower is the tallest in Norfolk. For those who enjoy viewing churches, this one is surely a must. Royal Cromer Golf Club in it's fabulous setting overlooking the sea provides golden opportunities for golfing enthusiasts to play amid panoramic coastal scenery with spectacular sea views.

Both along the coast and in the pleasant countryside beyond there are a host of good pubs, excellent speciality restaurants and delightful seaside cafe's. There are quaint, as well as modern shops and plenty of holiday attractions to suit all tastes and ages. You can enjoy deep sea fishing, catching crabs from the pier, or simply lazing on the sand soaking up the sun. In the evening there is always a popular show at the Pavilion Theatre on the pier.

Attractions include: Seal trips from Blakeney Point, Norfolk Shire Horse Centre, Cromer carnival - held each August.
