Travel Guide to holidays in... Cromer, Norfolk, England

Cromer, famous for the ‘Cromer Crab’, the main catch of local fishermen, is a coastal town in the north of Norfolk. The town is popular with tourists, has a wide variety of shops and a number of attractions including its museum and the ‘Amazona’ Amazon-themed zoo, newly opened in 2006.

Good transport facilities are provided including both rail and bus access, and Cromer provides a variety of holiday accommodation, ranging from cottages, through B&Bs to hotels, a wide range of which you will find available on Go2. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

Taking a break in one of our holiday cottages in Norfolk is the ideal way to explore this atmospheric and historic county. The coastline is the major attraction here, with miles of sandy beaches stretching from historic King’s Lynn all the way round to Great Yarmouth, famous for its Golden Mile and multitude of seaside attractions and entertainments. Cromer (noted for its crabs and pier), Sheringham and Hunstanton are also firm family favourites. If you prefer something quieter during your stay in one of our holiday cottages in Norfolk, try the North Norfolk Coast, a designated Area of Natural Beauty and a haven for walkers and birdwatchers. Venture inland and you’ll discover a gently rolling landscape dotted with flint cottages and ancient churches.

The county town of Norwich is one of England’s best-preserved cities and is a joy to wander around. Don’t miss a visit to the magnificent cathedral towering above the surrounding medieval streets. East of the city lie the Norfolk Broads, a vast expanse of interconnected lakes and waterways which has long been a firm favourite with sailors. Hire a boat for a day to see them at their best. Less
well-known are the mysterious Brecks, a wilderness area of heaths and forests and one of the least-populated parts of the country.

Travelling to or from Ireland? Don't forget the ferry! Not only does it give you the freedom of taking your own car but it provides a superb experience of travelling by sea and exploring the coastline. With convenient routes between Holyhead and Dublin, or Pembroke and Rosslare, we recommend Irish Ferries for great, low-cost, transport. They are the leading Irish ferry company and provide both an excellent service, and excellent prices.

User Guides

A visit to Cromer is well recommended. The "highlight" is of course the sea front and promenade and beach. The pier is also worth a look, and especially the famous RNLI Lifeboat station at the far end of the pier. Visitors are welcome to enter the Lifeboat station and museum, and you can view close-hand the lifeboat itself. The town itself is not that big, but has a good choice of restaurants (look out for the famous "Cromer Crab" dishes in the crab season !), and the town's shops are reasonable although rather "functional." The town also has a small cinema and the rail station has links to Norwich, for example, which is only around 30 minutes away. You can also take a train to the Broads from here (Wroxham) and also along the coast in the other direction to Sheringham. Walkers will like the scenic coastal paths along the cliffs from Cromer. All in all, well worth a visit, although most of the main town and sea front can be seen in half a day.
