Cromer is renowned for it's locally caught crabs, which are landed on the beach in an interesting manner: purchase them from little fishermen's cottages in town....Cromer is a bit of a dump ....
Its a bit hard saying Cromers a dump, its lost in time ,but yes, Sheringham is better. If you have a chance, the North Norfolk coast is a beautiful place, Blakeney, Wells, and for a quirky treat go to Walsingham, a really strange shrine of a place for those religious ones among us, as for me, an atheist, a very strange place indeed.We went to wood hill park last year it's on the cliffs and between Cromer and Sheringham .Cromer is a bit of a dump so Sheringham would be my choice,you've also got the steam trains running from there.If the weathers good there's a nice costal walk from the site into town. There's enough to do for a day or too on foot,nice museum type old lifeboat station and just round the corner a gallery of shell sculpture things by some bloke I can't remember who,but impressive and well worth a look.
The local pub is a 5 min walk out the site and to the left great no frills country grub, it's the first pub you come too the second ones not much cop all the locals frequent the first.
Have a good weekend . Vlad .
