Cromer

Great British Seaside

When you talk about Norfolk, you usually mean Great Yarmouth or Cromer. This story is about the latter. The famous pier and crabs. That's where long time ago many British people went on holiday. Right now this place isn't as popular as it was before, but it's still beautiful and has lots of character.

Cromer Pier

After the last big storm of 2013 it was almost destroyed but it's still standing and is still a Grade II listed seaside pier that's almost 600 years old

Feeding seagulls is a popular thing to do in Cromer

It is unknown when the town was actually built, however the first mentions happened in the year 1086 (Wikipedia)

The city used to be a vibrant seaside resort

Until today the famous Cromer crab is known to everyone in Norfolk and beyond and is a must-try when in town. This crab meat sandwich is from The Jetty Cafe πŸ’™

Beautiful Cromer Promenade Architecture

In 2015 the Pier was voted the Pier of The Year 2015 by the National Piers Society. The repair works are still continuing.

Cromer Lighthouse is one of the things you want to see whether it's day or night. A walk up the hill shouldn't take more than an hour πŸ˜‰

After climbing down you can indulge in some Great British food in the city centre.
