Seaside towns

Mundesley is a small but beautifully formed village just five minutes drive up the coast, but well worth spending a few hours here. If you fancy the walk, then try and time it with low tide and take yourself along the beach. Either way it’s well worth dropping into The Ship pub and sitting outside in the clifftop garden for a refreshing drink before going home. If you fancy a cuppa, then drop into the Corner House cafe, just along Cromer Road. Down on the lifeguarded beach, you’ll find a glorious sandy beach, pools left by the retreating tide to explore, pretty beach huts and a cafe to supply ice creams or other essential beach supplies.

Adventure IslandFor the kids there’s an amusement arcade and Adventure Island, a crazy golf course, that’s great for all the family. During May to September, step inside the Mundesley Maritime Museum, believed to be one of the smallest in Britain but having spectacular views out to sea.

On the second Tuesday of every month, Mundesley Cinema Club opens at the Coronation Hall. £4 adults & under 15’s £2. A reasonable priced evening out with a selection of well rated films.

There’s a range of village shops to mooch around and several eating places too, so well worth a wander round. It also has a village website with useful information about the village shops, eateries and details of the latest film showing.

Cromer is a quintessential, Victorian seaside resort, very popular with holidaymakers, but retaining its unspoilt feel. The pier is a magnet for all – crabbing, fishing, eating fish and chips, visiting the lifeboat museum or the pinnacle of it all, seeing a show at the Pavilion Theatre. The theatre has the last remaining Seaside Special Variety Show and is well worth a visit in the summer months. Alternatively there is an amazing variety of acts throughout the year to tempt all tastes. Read this page from Tour Norfolk for a guided tour around Cromer

Another traditional Seaside resort, with the pinnacle being the end of the line station of the North Norfolk railway. Steam engines come and go for most of the year and provide a really fun way to arrive into the town from Holt or Weybourne. Disembark and walk along the bustling High Street full of individual shops, from sweets to hardware and everything in between. Read this page from Tour Norfolk for a guided tour around Sheringham
