About Cromer

Cromer in Norfolk is 26 miles north of Norwich and 4 miles east of the lovely seaside town of Sheringham. It is known as the "Gem of the Norfolk Coast". The town is certainly is a very pretty seaside resort and it is an ideal base for landscape photography.

Cromer is very popular with holiday makers and also with locals.  Dressed crab is a famous delicacy. The beach is also well known for the rise and setting of the sun over the sea. Cromer also has a stunning pier with a small theatre and has the largest carnival in Norfolk that takes place in August each year. In the summer months the town often records some of the highest temperatures in the United Kingdom.

The Seaside Special dancers and entertainers shown below attend the carnival every year.

Cromer Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

As a Cromer photographer I love to walk along the cliffs from Overstrand and walk back along the beach. The views of the North Sea and beach are beautiful. The cliff walk takes you past the golf course and the beautiful lighthouse. 

Norfolk is renowned for being flat. However much of North Norfolk has undulating countryside and glacial features. The image below demonstrates this and you are advised to wear walking boots or suitable footwear when walking this path.

The cliffs are prone to crumbling so it as advisable to keep well clear from the edge. 

Beach to Overstrand

The cliffs from the beach

The walk from Overstrand is one of my favourite local walks. You can walk along the undulating cliffs in one direction and return along the flat sandy beach. Even in summer, once you get past the car park entrances you will almost have this beautiful beach to yourself. 

You will find all sorts of activities and events in the town in the summer months. Lots take place on or close to the pier.

Places also worth visiting are the town of North Walsham with a centre that is great for shopping, historic Holt and the attractive market town of Aylsham. 

If you are looking for a quiet family beach then I recommend lovely Happisburgh 14 miles South East along the coast.
