Cromer Hotels

Sticks of rock, ice cream, fish and chips – 3 English seaside town staples, and Cromer is a real seaside town. With a long sweep of golden sandy beach, amusements brimming with penny falls machines, and bucket and spade souvenir shops, it’s a popular summer holiday hotspot. Take a stroll along the Victorian Pier to let the fresh sea breeze blow away the cobwebs, while the kids enjoy dangling a line over the side to catch some infamous Cromer crab.

Things to see

Cromer comes to life in summer, when you can get in some real family fun time on its vast sandy beach. Full of colourful wind breaks, kids splashing in the waves and families building sandcastles, you’re sure to enjoy a fun-filled seaside holiday. The seaside promenade makes for a languid stroll, while plenty of restaurants, cafés and pubs are scattered around town, offering seaside fare like fish and chips, as well as the popular Cromer crab. Unlike many towns, Cromer hasn’t given way to chain brands, so you can find handmade souvenirs in the independent galleries and craft shops. If you fancy some old school entertainment, head to the theatre at the end of the pier to enjoy a traditional seaside variety show. If the seaside ambience gets too much, head inland to Norfolk’s green landscape. Fans of Jacobean architecture will enjoy a look at 17th century Felbrigg Hall.

Hotels in Cromer

Due to its nature as a traditional seaside town, most of Cromer’s accommodation tends to be in the form of upmarket period guesthouses, though a few 3 and 4-star rated hotels are dotted around the town. Large Victorian era buildings hold a high proportion of the town’s accommodation. These vary from traditional beside-the-seaside B&Bs (with doilies and frilly loo roll covers as standard) to modernised boutique-style guesthouses with stylish decor, up-to-date bathrooms and thick cotton bedding. Cromer hotels are well-regarded with many long-standing visitors who return year after year, so book in advance if heading to the town in summer.

Where to stay

Much of Cromer’s accommodation clusters around the seafront area, with some sitting handily along the promenade – perfect if you fancy opening your bedroom window to the sound of lapping waves. In summer the town’s brimming with families taking advantage of the sandy beach. If you fancy something a bit quieter head to one of the slightly smaller surrounding villages. Sheringham is a highly regarded fishing village that’s somehow maintained a traditional ambience where you can always enjoy freshly caught fish at local pubs and restaurants. Its beautiful sandy beach is also unspoilt, with plenty of rock pools at low tide.

How to get to Cromer

It’s almost worth taking the train to Cromer just to enjoy the scenic Bittern Line between Norwich and the coast, on a 30-mile stunning stretch through the Norfolk Broads. Norwich’s mainline station serves trains running from London Liverpool Street, Cambridge, Peterborough and Ely – for connections to the north of England. If travelling from further afield you could jump on a coach to avoid indirect train journeys. If you’re hoping to get out and about in the rural Norfolk countryside, a car will give you much more flexibility, as much of the area’s scattered with rural lanes, making bus journeys slow-going.
