Cromer was patronised by royalty and grew in the 19th Century from a small fishing village to a distinctly upper class tourist resort. Today, the town is full of character with narrow twisting streets and a vibrant promenade which hosts regular live entertainment. The harbour bustles with the activity of local crab fishermen, whilst the main street is often filled with people enjoying Cromer’s selection of local and high street shops. In town, there are art galleries, cinemas, tea shops and excellent sea-food restaurants.
The resort is at its most busy and lively during its spectacular carnival. At the same time, there is plenty for those who want to relax away from the crowds. Enjoy the resort’s beautifully kept gardens, expansive sandy beaches and majestic church tower with commanding views of the coastline. There is the opportunity to enjoy some spectacular walks, particularly to the west, amongst a landscape known as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Cromer is set amidst the pleasant countryside of North Norfolk with its uniquely charming scenery. The Norfolk Broads and the East Anglia coastline are made up of river valleys, rolling green fields, secluded woodlands, marshlands and miles of glorious beaches and dramatic cliffs. There are rural crafts, animal collections, castles, windmills, historic houses and gardens found amongst picture postcard villages and ancient market towns. Activities including boating, fishing, birdwatching, walking or just admiring the peaceful scenery are all here to enjoy.
The quaint narrow, twisting streets are home to a host of interesting shops selling all manner of goods, from household items to the delicious Cromer crabs for which the town is well known.
Cromer's sand and shingle beach is popular with both bathers and surfers and offers clean waters and safe bathing. The pretty gardens along the cliff are well stocked and also feature pitch and putt and the bowling green.
