What to do in Cromer

About Cromer

Cromer, a lovely seaside town in Norfolk, boasts marvellous, inspiring views of the blue sea from its sandy beaches. In fact, Cromer's striking beauty has earned it a mention in great literary works, namely Jane Austen's Emma and Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. Holidaymakers can go surfing on the crashing waves, enjoy deep sea fishing from a boat, or sample the crab and lobster – it's known for its unique taste and draws gastronomes from all over. Walk barefoot on Sheringham or East Runton Beach, feel the smooth pebbles beneath your feet, and watch the seabirds soar overhead.

Head to Sheringham Little Theatre to see performances in a cosy setting, or get out and take the wider area with a 10-mile steam train trip on North Norfolk Railway. Kids love interacting with the horses, alpacas, and donkeys at Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary, where you can roam around with the farm animals as they graze the open fields. Cromer Pier and the Pavilion Theatre's entertainment arcades and food outlets are among the town's top attractions. With eDreams, you can easily find luxury or cheap hotels in Cromer and be close to all of these attractions – just filter your search to find what you're looking for.
