Norfolk is steeped in history.
A short drive away, and you can be walking around stately homes and experiencing our history first hand.
With HM the Queen’s Norfolk residence, The Sandringham Estate and the childhood home of Anne Boleyn at Blickling Hall both close by, you can learn all about our county’s role in British Royal history, while taking in beautiful landscaped gardens.
While rail enthusiasts are spoilt for choice too.
Enjoy a relaxing ride by steam train along the famous Poppy Line from nearby Sheringham to Holt – a great way to experience some old North Norfolk charm, with magnificent views of our coast and countryside.
Or take an 18 mile round trip on the Bure Valley Railway through picturesque countryside. One of the top rail trips you can take anywhere in England.
And of course, our maritime history is a big part of our local culture.
Stroll into town, enjoy a pint of real Norfolk ale by the bar, and chat to local fisherman keen to share their tales of the high seas.
Visit Cromer lifeboat station at the end of the pier to learn all about the RNLI’s vital work. Stop at the Henry Blogg lifeboat museum too to see the Cromer Wartime Lifeboat, HF Bailey, which served at the Pier from 1935 to 1945 and was Henry Blogg’s lifeboat – the most decorated life boatman in history.
Visit Cromer Museum and step foot inside a Victorian fisherman’s cottage. Or The Mo Sheringham Museum, with its beautiful collection of boats and lifeboats, and social history gallery, taking you back in time.
The museum’s tower also offers a fantastic 360 degree view of the town. Not to be missed.
