Pictures of Sheringham
in the county of Norfolk
This delightful resort grew up from what was once a small fishing village, some of the old cottages belonging to the fisher-folk of yester-year still survive close to the shore at the far end of the town. The advent of the railways in 1887 brought Victorian tourists to the town, some liked the little place so much that they stayed on and built the fine Victorian houses that we see in the town today. A small fishing fleet existed here and today the sea is often alive with gaily painted fishing boats going in search of lobster and crab. Sailing is good, so too is surfing and there is safe bathing from the gently sloping sandy beach.
Local attractions include the North Norfolk Railway line and the beautiful Landscape Park and Wooded Gardens of Sheringham Park. There are stunning coastal views from the viewing towers within the park. In springtime, the gardens are ablaze with a fabulous display of azaleas and rhododendrons that rivals those to be seen anywhere. The house itself is privately occupied and not open to the public.
