Known as the ‘Gem of the Norfolk Coast’, Cromer is a thriving town located 23 miles north of Norwich.
The town, famous for its local shellfish, has had a very buoyant property market dating back hundreds of years, with the holiday let market becoming ever more important. With an iconic Victorian pier, a medieval church, fantastic shopping facilities and great local amenities, this town well and truly punches above its weight. Cromer boasts an excellent selection of art galleries, craft shops, cinema, pubs, restaurants, doctors and dentists and plays host to a great range of schools for those with children. Above the family-friendly beach, you can explore the town’s tight streets, the church of St Peter and St Paul with its wonderful stained glass and 160ft tower, and the Cromer Museum where you can learn about the town’s fishing, trading and seaside history – or just simply enjoy the peaceful mini-parks and gardens.
The Cromer Carnival has become a national tourist attraction, enjoying a fantastic holiday atmosphere in August thriving on a strong local community and the tourism industry. Famous for its history of RNLI lifeboats, Cromer celebrates its rich history with the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum and a number of sculptures throughout the town.
This traditional seaside town offers visitors and residents access to some fantastic coastal walks, sea angling opportunities and picturesque locations such as the nearby village of Overstrand.
