Choose a Cromer Vacation Rental for a Traditional English Seaside Break
If you’re looking for a typical English seaside vacation, then the delightful English seaside town of Cromer is an excellent choice. A vast beach, lighthouses, plenty of fish and chips restaurants, a traditional pier and the beautiful Norfolk countryside surrounding it are just some of the things you can enjoy when you stay in a Cromer vacation rental. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city, breathe in the fresh sea air and unwind by the Great British seaside.
Getting to Cromer
Getting to Cromer is simple. Catch a train from Norwich, which will take you to Cromer in under an hour or hire a car and enjoy the scenic drive through the Norfolk countryside until you reach the sea. The pace of life in Cromer is relaxed, so no need to hurry. Make your journey part of the vacation. After the short journey from Norwich, you will arrive at your Cromer vacation home and begin what is sure to be a memorable vacation.
Cromer and its Cuisine
Naturally, being next to the seaside means that the fish and chips are not to be missed. Equally appetizing, however, is the famous Cromer crab. Crab was once the town's main source of income and whilst this has changed a little, the crab remains as delicious as ever. If in town in May, be sure to head to the Crab and Lobster Festival. Otherwise you can try this local delicacy in one of Cromer's many restaurants or pick some up and cook it yourself in your Cromer vacation rental.
The Weather in Cromer
The best time to visit Cromer is in summer, when the coastal climate and sea air provide a very welcome break from the stuffiness of the city. If you do come outside of summer, it is probably wise to pack a jumper or two. Of course, with your own Cromer vacation rental, you have the option of relaxing indoors as well as taking enlivening walks along the beach, whatever the season.
The Sights in Cromer
No trip to Cromer would be complete without a trip to the pier. An excellent example of a traditional English pier, it was constructed in 1901 and is an impressive 151 m long. You can also stop at the Pavilion Theater, which is situated on the pier, and take in a show.
The Henry Blogg Museum tells the story of a local lifeboat man who became a national hero, and is well worth checking out. Throughout the summer, you can explore its numerous exhibits between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 17:00 p.m.
From relaxing on the beach, to playing games in the traditional arcades, there is certainly no shortage of things to do here. The benefit of you having own Cromer vacation home means you set the pace, and relax in your home away from home in between activities.
Cromer for Kids
A vacation in Cromer is sure to keep the whole family happy, as there are plenty of great activities for children. Playing on the beach, building sandcastles and paddling in the sea are of course highlights. There is also the excellent Amazona Zoo, which is home to over 200 species of animal as well as informative exhibits on the conservation work carried out here. Or why not try the themed Cromer Treasure Trail? Explore the town, see the sights and have fun hunting for the clues.
If the weather happens to be on the drizzly side whilst you are here, do not worry, as there is the Regal Movieplex in the center of town. Sit back, dig into a box of popcorn, and wait until it is time to hit the beach again.
However you spend your time, a trip to Cromer is sure to be a memorable one.
