Local Attractions

Sheringham is a delightful little town, with many traditional sea-side attractions and amusements, and a charming main street full of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, not forgetting our museum, ‘The Mo’, and all within a ten-minute walk of Picton Cottage.

The beaches are safe for children and popular with families.

There's something for everyone in and around Sheringham, including:

You can leave the car at home and explore other beaches and the coastline on the excellent Coasthopper, which stops a stone’s throw from Picton Cottage. Eastwards takes you to the unspoilt East and West Runton to Cromer, another classic seaside town. Cromer Pier hosts  the last end-of-the-pier show in Europe, with summer and Christmas spectaculars.

Head west through pretty flint and brick villages and explore the harbour town of Wells-next-the-sea and neighbouring Holkham Beach, a fabulous expanse of sand, “where the sea meets the sky”.

Visitors will also enjoy excellent food and drink in Sheringham and north Norfolk, with so many great cafes, restaurants, tea-rooms and pubs offering fresh, local, seasonal produce. Delicious!
