Cromer and it's Surrounding Area

“Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!!”

If you have always wanted to be more than just a visitor to the seaside then maybe Cromer is the ideal location for you. It sits on the stunning North Norfolk coast, surrounded by some of Norfolk’s most beautiful countryside and attractive neighbouring towns and villages.

The town takes much of its character from the many fine buildings that the Victorians and then Edwardians built along the seafront and throughout the town creating a sense of historic grandeur. The landmark pier, promenade, long sandy beaches and rolling cliffs are just some of the other features that make Cromer so visually appealing.

Many stunning coastal and countryside walks can be enjoyed, starting from the town or nearby. The National Trust’s elegant Felbrigg Hall, the glorious Blickling Hall and Sheringham Park are only a few miles away, and if golf is your passion, The Royal Cromer Golf Club sprawls over the cliff tops between Cromer and neighbouring Overstrand. Enjoy watersports and fishing on the coast or the famous Broads - a member of the National Parks family - whose waterways begin only 20 miles away at Wroxham.

Cromer has a good array of independent shops and national supermarkets. There are also many restaurants, cafes and public houses in the town and close by. Cromer and District Hospital provides a range of acute out-patient and day case services. There are also dental surgeries, a GP surgery, an infant, junior and academy school within the town. The region's historic capital, Norwich, is just over 20 miles away. Norwich is the main commercial, cultural, retail, entertainment and transport link for the county. Cromer has railway links to Norwich, the Broads and its neighbouring town Sheringham.
