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.

Smart New Boathouse

Smart New Boathouse

You've probably noticed the smart new finish for the lifeboat house at the end of Cromer pier. Unfortuantely the pine, used when the boathouse was rebuilt in 1998, had begun to rot and was seeping resin, so a decision was made to replace the white painted wood with natural siberian larch; this will weather to a silver-grey colour. The RNLI has tested the larch at various other locations, and believes it will meet the needs of the exposed building for the next 60 years.

A Warm Welcome

A Warm Welcome

There was a warm welcome at the parish church on Friday evening for James Porter, formerly curate at Cromer and now returning as vicar. The church was full to capicity as the Bishop of Norwich and other ministers from churches in the town and neighbouring parishes joined together to officially induct James. James, originally trained as a medical doctor before becoming a minister, will be moving to Cromer and fully taking up his duties in the middle of August.

It was a taste of the summer fun to come as the carnival team arranged a soap box derby, with drivers racing their vehicles down the Runton Road. A sharp shower later in the afternoon dampened things down a bit but not before a range of cunning contraptions had tusselled it out, down the ramp, through the chicanes and racing (or sometimes crawling!) past the chequered flag. Congratulations to all who entered into the spirit of the event.

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.

With a selection of campsites, caravan parks, self-catering holiday home, B&B's, pubs with rooms and hotels you are certain to find overnight accommodation to suit your needs, both now and in the future. There are many visitors that have been coming to Cromer throughout their whole life and this pattern seems to be repeating itself. Have you re-visited since your childhood? And if you have a family connection or an interest in more of the town's history, look in at the Cromer Dictionary site.

Cromer is proud to boast two blue flag beaches to explore on foot and the fabulous pier jutting out into the north sea with its end of pier shows is a great spot to try crabbing for yourself! The award winning North Norfolk coast path passes through the area and means great scenic walks are easily accessible. The town has a range of artistic, cultural and educational activities on offer and up to date listings of what's on in the town and local area can be found here.

The mainly Victorian town of Cromer is ideally situated for exploring North Norfolk, the Broads, Norwich and beyond. With regular train and bus links to the Broads and Norwich it is easy to get out and explore all the area has to offer by public transport. The Coasthopper bus service makes it easy to explore North Norfolk. During the months of March to October there are several historic homes to visit, including of course the royal home at Sandringham as well as National Trust properties at Blickling & Felbrigg.
