Cromer is that typical Norfolk coastal town, in that it started life as a major hub in the fishing industry, but was then adopted by the late Victorians into a holiday resort. Whilst fishing still maintains a certain degree of importance (in the form of the famous Cromer Crab which are caught from a fleet of ten boats still working from Cromer and sold in the local shops), tourism is now the main industry. As such, Cromer town is well set up for both day trippers and longer term holiday makers alike. There are dozens of accommodation options in lodgings ranging from hotels through to caravans and chalets. During school holidays, it is advisable to book your Holiday Caravan, Cromer Hotel or B&B well ahead of your travel time.
In terms of facilities and things to see and do, Cromer and the immediate surrounding provide a great deal. There are a number of museums such as the Lifeboat museum which provide a good chance to understand the vital role that the lifeboats in this area have played over the years. There are also amusement arcades, shops selling beach and holiday goods, and a theatre on the end of Cromer pier.
It would of course be remiss to not mention the beach when talking about Cromer. Whilst Cromer itself is sat on a cliff top, the beach is easily accessible by ramps and steps. Once there, the sands stretch in either direction for as far as the eye can see and more. Even during the busiest times of year, you would be able to find a quiet spot to yourself.
Cromer is a wonderful place to visit during the summer, and is especially family friendly. Whether staying for a week or just visiting for the day, you can be assured that you will enjoy your time in this North Norfolk coastal town.
