A classic seaside town with colourful shops and a traditional pier, which houses a pavilion theatre with variety shows and cabaret. The RNLI museum has interactive displays of life boating and pays tribute to Henry Blogg, one of Norfolks heroes who served 53 years working on the Cromer coast. The town museum has fascinating archives of the fishing trade and collections of fossils all discovered locally.
The Cromer Boating Lake is a fantastic family site with a picnic area, trampolines and putting green. There is a choice of canoes and boats to paddle about in. There are elevated views of the town from the cliff top walk to Overstrand, this takes visitors past the Royal Cromer Golf Club and the lighthouse. A centre piece of the town is the church of St Peter & St Paul, for those brave enough to venture up the 172 steps to the tower there are views of the pier and coastline.
On the outskirts of the town is Amazona Zoo, specialising in South American wildlife including caimans, jaguars and monkeys. Hillside Sanctuary is another great day out for animal lovers, with rescued shire horses and donkeys. There is a museum on site which has collections of agricultural machinery and blacksmith equipment. Blickling Estate has over 950 acres of woods and parkland to explore. Baconsthorpe Castle is worth a visit; wander through the unspoilt ruins of this 15th century fortified manor.
