Cromer, Norfolk

A quintessentially British day out

On hot sticky days, the only place to escape to the beach. A moto I paid close attention to last week (see Instagram for reference).
When you book a break in the UK the weather is always a gamble, but if it’s good, it’s bloomin’ good and the UK coastline looks even more beautiful than ever. That said, I am partial to the beach in my Hunters in any season.

Of all the places we visited last week, Cromer was by far up there as a firm favourite.

A beautiful Victorian coastal town on the Norfolk coast. Complete with pastel houses, beach huts and a Victorian pier.

Head down from the town and onto the promenade where you’ll discover the prettiest, and some incredibly Instagram worthy, beach houses.

Pop onto the beach to dip your toes in the salty sea. It’s a must if it’s sunny. Even Herby got all four paws in with some encouragement.

Next port of call is the pier. A great spot to wander up and down admiring the views of the pastel coloured houses in Cromer.

We found ourselves back on dry land on the sea front and grabbed a drink at the lovely North Sea coffee co. Herby was particularly happy with the choice of venue after being presented with a tub of dog treats. Head here if you’re taking your four legged friend.

Next head up the steps into the town and admire more scrummy views of the sea and the pretty town. There's also a great selection of ice cream shops which stock locally made ice cream so grab a cone and enjoy a poke around the town.

And last but not least, finish your trip off with fish and chips from No.1 Cromer restaurant and take out. It’s run by Michelin star chef Galton Blackiston and is incredible. We got a take-out and sat watching the sea coming in.

A very British day out!
