Sheringham boasts a superb Blue Flag beach, coastal walks and access to the stunning North Norfolk countryside

A traditional seaside town, which grew up around its old fishing village, and a few little boats still bring in the daily catch. Sheringham is home of the North Norfolk Railway (The Poppy Line), which operates steam train rides to Holt.

Sea, cliffs, fine sands and bracing air are some of the reasons why Sheringham is so popular. Among the glories of the area are the surrounding woods of Upper Sheringham (including Sheringham Park), with views over the sea, and miles of bracken-covered undulating uplands, covered with golden gorse and purple heather.

The town of Sheringham is anything but the monotonous strip, with the promenade running in and out of the low cliffs, while steps and slopes connect it with the town above. Sheringham has plenty of facilities, including many interesting shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. There is a popular twice weekly market on Wednesday's and Saturday's, that attract many to the town.

 

Here are a few ideas of places to visit in the local area.
