The East Anglia region
Enduring mystery of life no 17,978: just what is it that separates Cromer from loftier spots such as Holt and Burnham Market one way and Southwold and Aldeburgh the other? A matter of yards, I tell you! Outside Cromer's city limits, property prices soar: beyond Blakeney, you can barely get a coal scuttle for a quarter of a million. Yet Cromer's bone structure is Southwold in all but property price and plum-mouthed inhabitants fresh from Hampstead. Gorgeous beach, cliffs high enough to be picturesque, splendiferous pier, a chain-lite centre, lighthouse, independent cinema, a faded hotel called the Hotel de Paris. What more do you want? Delicious, locally produced foodstuff to feed the foodie in you? One word: crabs.

Things to do in Cromer
The pretty seaside town of Cromer is situated on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. With gorgeous stretches of soft sandy beach, little streets filled with interesting shops and plenty of places to enjoy the excellent food including the famous Cromer crab, Cromer is excellent for day visits, weekend breaks or family holidays. With its roots in the Victorian era, Cromer is a lovely combination of old and new. The seafront is a wonderful array of pretty bed and breakfasts dating back to the late 1800s giving the town a historic air. Beautiful landscaped cliff gardens, which bloom with colour during the summer months, overlook vast stretches of unspoilt beach. A small funfair positioned near the town is great for younger children while all ages will enjoy crabbing, a pastime that you will see along the spectacular pier.
Over 100 years old, Cromer pier has been home to the Pavilion Theatre which puts on a range of shows throughout the year. In the town there are many little shops to explore and, for the energetic, climb the 172 steps to the top of the medieval St Peter and St Paul's Church (thought to be the tallest church in Norfolk) where you will be rewarded with superb views across the surrounding area, beach and out to sea. Cromer is a great place to enjoy some safe seaside fun, and has won the coveted Blue Flag Award for 2010. The Blue Flag designation acts as a guarantee to tourists that the beach is one of the best in the world, and has excellent cleanliness, water quality, environmental education and safety.
As well as traditional seaside fun and activities, Cromer and nearby Sheringham offer plenty of activities and attractions to enjoy.
Housed in a Victorian fisherman's cottage, Cromer Museum is a journey back in time to discover what life was like in the town in the late 1800s. There are fascinating displays of historic photos and stories of the brave lifeboat men, and the Geology Gallery houses an amazing collection of fossils, all found in Norfolk. See the incredible West Runton Elephant, Britain's oldest and most complete elephant fossil, discovered in the ice age cliffs - and who knows what other prehistoric creatures may still be hidden in the rock?
The RNLI Henry Blogg Museum in Cromer is dedicated to an incredible lifeboat man, Henry Blogg, who served for over 50 years and was awarded the George Cross for his heroic work. The museum houses a magnificent lifeboat, the HF Bailey, an extensive photograph collection and the amazing story of Henry Blogg and the RNLI, all brought to life by interactive displays.
Part of the National Trust, Felbrigg Hall, Garden and Park is a striking estate just two miles from Cromer. It is one of the finest 17th Century country houses in the UK with much to explore inside and out with numerous lakeside and natural trails through the parkland. After thoroughly exploring the Hall and Garden, take time for some refreshments at the well furbished restaurant, sheltered in an enclosed courtyard.
