Why Move to Cromer?
Cromer, the seaside capital of north Norfolk is located 23 miles from Norwich, 116 miles from London, and 4 miles east of Sheringham facing the North Sea. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, historically there has been a settlement in what is now the town for many centuries. Originally it is thought the area was named Shipden-juxta-Felbrigg. By the end of the 14th century, it became known as Cromer. Cromer became a holiday resort during the early 19th century, with some of the rich Norwich banking families making it their summer home. King Edward VII loved the town and played golf here on many occasions.
Once a thriving year-round fishery town, Cromer was associated with the catches of crabs and lobsters in the summer, drifting for longshore herring in the autumn, and long-lining, primarily for cod, in the winter. Today Cromer is a traditional tourist resort very well known for the locally and extremely tasty Cromer crab, which is transported up and down the UK to top restaurants.
Since becoming a fashionable destination for affluent Victorian travellers in the late 1800s, Cromer has retained its vibrant oceanfront appeal and remains a favourite among visitors and locals alike. It is not all about crabs, Cromer has several wide-open Blue Flag beaches, and traditional pier complete with a theatre providing seaside special variety shows.
Cromer is also ideally situated for exploring the more inland locations of North Norfolk, the Broads, Norwich, and beyond.
Connections are rather limited, the A140 is a direct route into Norwich a journey by car of 45 minutes and by train just under an hour. The excellent Coasthopper bus service serves the coast east and west. Cromer High railway station and Cromer Beach Station provide residents with a number of services between Norwich and Sheringham.
In addition to traditional seaside shops selling buckets and spades and seaside gifts, there is a selection of local art galleries, homeware stores, ladies & gents fashion and fashion accessories shops. As for amenities, although the main food shop can be done at either Morrisons, Tesco, The Co-op, and Lidl, most residents travel to Norwich when they need anything beyond the basics. Cromer is a safe coastal location, which has retained a traditional, un-modernised air that many seaside towns now lack. Offering a lifestyle that is rather too slow for the younger generation, it has become equally as popular with those looking to retire or to raise a family.
