Cromer is about twenty miles from Norwich, and is often called "The north coast capital of the county". At the meeting place of five main roads, the Cromer rush hour is more the rush months ie during the summer.
Trade and foot traffic inside Cromer is highly seasonal and some tourist-focused businesses may close down outside the summer season.
Most roads in and around Cromer are relatively quiet for most of the day. Many of the roads inside the town are relatively small and one-way, so care may be needed navigating.
There are several car parks inside the town, all of which are pay-and-display. On the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, Cromer's Market is held inside the Meadow Car Park, reducing the number of available spaces. On-road parking inside the town is available but very limited.
In Cromer and in general in East Anglia, bringing or hiring a car is highly recommended as the area has many small villages and towns separated by long country roads.
The beach at Cromer is public and free to access and rated very highly.
The pier. Cromer Pier is one of the oldest in the country and has been damaged and restored several times. The Pavilion Theatre at the end of the pier runs a Seaside Special variety show 1-2 times every day during the season.
Cromer has three Amusement Arcades on or near the Promenade: [i]JB's[/i] and [i]Leisureland[/i] on Jetty Street, and [i]Dune's Amusements[/i] on the beach itself. These are mostly focused on 3-reel slots and redemption machines. [i]Dune's[/i] closes outside of the season.
