In addition to its acres of stunning, sweeping countryside and its plethora of friendly little towns, Norfolk is also well known for its charming coastline. The north coast in particular offers holidaymakers a medley of gorgeous beaches and Victorian seaside resorts for that authentic 'British Seaside Holiday' experience. Cromer is one of the county's most popular coastal towns, with the pier being its main attraction. As you'd expect, there's no shortage of hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs within easy reach of Cromer Pier.
Cromer Pier was built in 1901, in the final year of Queen Victoria's reign. This time in history is often thought of as the Golden Age of the country's coastline, due to the popularity of seaside retreats. The traditional pier at Cromer harks back to that era of glamorous seaside attractions.
The Grade II listed pier sits just shy of 500 feet in length, offering exquisite views out across the ocean and back towards Cromer itself. The pier is well known for being one of the area's best crabbing spots and has even made a number of appearances in TV and film. Cameos for Cromer Pier range from roles in the hair-raising television show, Most Haunted, to the 2013 film, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa.
In the years after its construction, the end of the pier was proving to be a popular spot for open-air concerts. Seeing an opportunity, the owners of the pier soon covered the concert space, forming a pavilion. Today, the site houses an impressive 500-seat theatre. The Cromer Pier Show is a regularly performed live variety show, which pulls in a good number of tourists each year.
Some of the best hotels in Norfolk are situated on the north coast, near or in Cromer. The area boasts just about everything from substantial hotels packed with facilities to intimate bed and breakfasts.
Cliftonville Hotel makes the most of the seafront location, offering guests stunning views of Cromer Pier and the North Sea. Virginia Court Hotel and Ogilvy House are also located close to the seafront and are within walking distance of the pier.
