Things to do

Attractions near your holiday rental in Cromer

After 53 years of saving lives along the Norfolk coast, and with a whole load of hair-raising tales to tell about rescue expeditions on the wild North Sea, the local branch of the RNLI is a great place to begin in Cromer. Its Henry Blogg Museum is situated on the seafront, and bursting with stories of one local lifeguard-cum-hero and his daring escapades on the waves. After that, a stroll down Cromer Pier leads to a whirlwind of cabaret and stand-up and vaudeville in the 500-seater theatre – a great way to kick-start the evening.

Grab a bodyboard and pull some barrel rolls on the waves. Hungry? Hit the Victorian-era concession stands for your fix of succulent chips and fresh-caught Norfolk fish. There's shopping, too.
