Cromer is the English seaside of yesteryear, with some modern twists. I combined this holiday with a visit to friends and it never lets me down. The town is lovely to stroll around with independent shops and galleries where you can purchase lovely original artwork. (One sold stunning photos of Cromer and the local are, unfortunately I cannot remember the name.) The ice cream shops are great with one down by the Lifeboat museum selling some unusual flavours e.g.Christmas pudding.
Cromer crab is renowned and there are plenty of places to tempt yourself with. The town also boasts some excellent fish and chip shops.
The pier is always lovely and the sound of young children and some older ones crabbing is a joy. Then down on the beach you can go paddle boarding at very reasonable prices.
The walk across the front is flat but it is a steep climb up and down. However you can rest and admire the view!
I would recommend Cromer as a good destination that gives you scope to visit places up and down the coast.
