A busy town with a historic pier and plenty to explore through its narrow streets.
is a great year-round attraction, and whatever the weather Cromer hosts the last ‘end of the pier’ show in Europe every summer. It is a traditional British Summer variety performance now in its 30th year, and should not be missed.
Aside from sampling the famous Cromer crab (best in early summer) and watching the crab boats, be sure to spend time walking the shoreline.
Cromer’s safe and sandy beaches have consistently won both the Keep Britain Tidy Seaside Award and the prestigious EU blue flag award for water quality. Patrolled by Lifeguards in summer, the beach is ideal for families of all ages.
Pop into Shelley’s Pie and Mash shop, which serves a wide variety of London-style pie and liquor, including gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan options. Dog friendly too!
Watch out for the lifeboat launch from the pier every Sunday from 11am.
Explore Norfolk’s Ice Age coast on guided walks with geologist Martin Warren. New Beery Walks will include tasting of Poppyland Beer.
If you are here in the summer, try surfing or paddle-boarding at Glide Surf school (open April to October).
A former Fisherman’s cottage, this quaint brick and flint listed building houses six rooms of vibrant artwork and gifts. It has been under the ownership of Kate Gale since 2010, and is situated in Garden Street, a popular thoroughfare to the
famous Cromer Pier.
Kate says: “Our visitors love exploring the quirky little rooms and are always amazed how the building opens out. They are enticed in by our regularly changing exhibitions (although I suspect they are actually coming to see Cassedy my gorgeous labradoodle!) We are fortunate to live in an area rich and diverse in its artistic talent and I aim to capture a snapshot of that on our walls.”
