Cromer, perched on the very edge of the north Norfolk coast, is famous for its tasty crabs, wide open beaches, a traditional pier complete with a theatre providing seaside special variety shows and is awash with small local independent shops. As you would expect of a seaside town rich in its fishing heritage, it has a lighthouse and a proud tradition of RNLI service. It has been said that the lifeboat service is the lifeblood of the town and the Henry Blogg Museum offers a great insight into the service's past history.

In Cromer you will find a vibrant Norfolk town with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, shops and accommodation, all independently owned and many passed down through the ages from parents to children. Lots of these businesses are represented on our 'one stop shop' website covering Cromer.
For shopaholics, in addition to traditional seaside shops selling buckets and spades and seaside gifts, we have a selection of local art galleries, homeware stores, ladies & gents fashion and fashion accessories shops. We have food stores with local produce including several fish shops featuring the famous Cromer crab and other privately owned stores including those specialising in assorted arts and crafts including baking and knitting.
