Cromer is a town on the North Norfolk coast famous for its crabs, fishermen and lifeboats.
The drive from Norwich on the A140 takes about half an hour.
The Train is a fantastic way to get here from Norwich on a one line track through the Broads.
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. Each Friday from 8.30am to 4pm, Cromer's outdoor 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.
Cromer is connected to Norwich by train. The town is on the 'Bittern' railway line, which goes on to Sheringham. Sanders of Holt also runs bus services connecting Cromer to Norwich as well as other spots around Norfolk, and the town is on the popular 'Coasthopper' bus route along the north Norfolk coast.
If you want to explore north Norfolk's village and towns with more flexibility, bringing or hiring a car is recommended.
