Cromer, perched on the very edge of the north Norfolk coast, is famous for its tasty crabs, wide open beaches, a traditional pier complete with a theatre providing seaside special variety shows and is awash with small local independent shops. As you would expect of a seaside town rich in its fishing heritage, it has a lighthouse and a proud tradition of RNLI service. It has been said that the lifeboat service is the lifeblood of the town and the Henry Blogg Musuem offers a great insight into the service's past history.

In Cromer you will find a vibrant Norfolk town with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, shops and accommodation, all independently owned and many passed down through the ages from parents to children. Lots of these businesses are represented on our 'one stop shop' website covering Cromer.
For shopaholics, in addition to traditional seaside shops selling buckets and spades and seaside gifts, we have a selection of local art galleries, homeware stores, ladies & gents fashion and fashion accessories shops. We have food stores with local produce including several fish shops featuring the famous Cromer crab and other privately owned stores including those specialising in assorted arts and crafts including baking and knitting.

New Lamps for Old

As part of their joint responsibility for the lighting of the town, the Town Council and the Dsitrict Council are undertaking a rolling programme of replacement of lamp standards in Cromer. A standard new column is being used wherever possible in the town centre; today the team are at work replacing the standards in the churchyard. Away from the centre a different style is used; more efficient lamps are part of the process, with a cost reduction but improved lighting. Not everything can be done at once but the changes are made as renwal requires.

The town offers a wide choice of restaurants and cafes with not a single coffee shop chain or national eating or drinking venue to be found. Instead you have cafes, bars and restaurants owned and operated by local residents all eager to serve both local residents and visiting guests.
