What to do & where to go
Victoria House is only a minute’s walk from the long sandy beach – and it’s only a 20 minute stroll (along the beach or cliff tops) to Cromer Pier and its Pavilion Theatre. You can go crabbing (or fishing) off from the pier by day and see a splendid show at the theatre in the evening.
Immediately behind East Runton village, is the Holt-Cromer Ridge, a stretch of high ground (and mini-hills), deposited by glaciers during the Ice Age. A network of paths offers easy access to explore this beautiful area of woods and heathland.
The North Norfolk Railway (Poppy Line) departs Sheringham to Holt via Weybourne and offers a chance to step back in time.
Catch the Bittern Line
Or why not take a train ride on the Bittern Line to Norwich city? Trains regularly stop at both nearby West Runton and Cromer. The trip takes less than an hour and passes through beautiful Norfolk countryside.
It’s a great way to view the landscape, passing through the Norfolk Broads. Or jump off at Wroxham station to explore the Broads. Boats can be hired by the hour (book in advance during busy times of the year).
Norwich is one of best shopping centres in the UK. Or you can watch a football match at Carrow Road. The Castle Museum is superbly interesting with a very varied collection of exhibitions covering a multitude of subjects.
Norwich Cathedral has the second tallest spire and the second-largest cloisters in England. The cathedral is a magnificent construction, constructed in cream-coloured Caen limestone.
There’s always something to do, for the whole family.
