About the neighbourhood
Seen from the apartment is the famed Cromer Pier, which extends about 500 feet into the sea, and which has existed in different incarnations since 1391, is probably the biggest individual draw to Cromer. The Pavilion Theatre, a 510-seater venue located near the end of the pier, is well known for hosting the popular 'end-of-the-pier' show, the Seaside Special. Which i would recommend you to book
The town offers a wide choice of restaurants and cafes with not a single coffee shop chain or national eating or drinking venue to be found.
National trust properties to visit and glorious miles of coastline in areas of natural outstanding beauty such as Blakeney and Wells next the Sea. without singing the praises of Cromers two blue flag beaches
Getting around
A Car makes viewing this beautiful coastline with its market towns very accessible , but there is a good coastal bus service( Stagecoach Coasthopper) which runs along the scenic North Norfolk coast.

A Frequent train and bus service to Norwich and onwards

Cromer train station runs regularly to Norwich stopping at various towns

Taxis are easy found by the church in Cromer

The North Norfolk Railway (heritage Steam railway) , known locally as 'The Poppy Line', stretches 5 miles between Sheringham and Holt, with stops at Weybourne Heath and Kelling Halt, which gives access to Kelling Heath, a protected parcel of heathland covered with gorse, heather and bracken – and lots of rambling paths.
