Old style pier. Dog friendly. Theatre on board and the lifeboat at the end. Lots and lots of people catching crabs. Food and drink available. It's nice....

Great atmosphere in both bar and theatre. Good view and hysterically funny show - Jim Davidson a true comic genius.

Excellent pier , very old school and quaint. Lovely coffee shop at the end which leads j to the theatre. Great hot chocolate had on a cold blustery february day. Lovely coffee shop and the RNLI is a pleasure to walk round and great to teach the kids about how we should respect these unsung heroes who risk their lives... More

Enjoyable stroll round the pier in the February sunshine, very nostalgic of times gone past! Very busy with a theatre at the end of it. Unfortunately, nothing was on that we fancied during our stay otherwise we would have tried this.

We parked up at Overstrand and walked the cliff-top path to Cromer against a strong head wind. Once at Cromer we headed for the pier and sat in our favorite seat just people watching and listening to the sound of the sea. The walk back along the beach was strenuous and the wind damage to the beach huts was sad.... More

Cromer would not be Cromer without the pier. The highlight is the RNLI boathouse located at the end of the pier. It is well worth seeing and reading about the important role the lifeboat has played in saving lives over the years. For those into photography or painting, there is a fantastic view of the town seafront from the pier.

The old pier is probably much better in summer. Nice to look back at the town from the sea. Would like to see the missing copper plates in the inlaid ground display at the entrance properly repaired by the Council.
