Once a fishing village, Sheringham is now a traditional seaside town with a Blue Flag family-friendly beach. Find many shops selling local produce, cafes and tearooms. Why not take a trip of the heritage steam railway?

The Beach

Amble through the town center and along the high street to access Sheringham seafront. There are concrete slopes leading down to the beach and promenade lined with colourful beach huts.

When the tide is out Sheringham boasts a large sandy beach. Large boulders placed as part of the areas sea defenses line the seafront, so at high tide you will only find a shingle beach. There are showers and W/C’s making it a great stop for families, just be aware that it can be difficult to access the beach with a buggy or pram due to the shingle.

Dog friendly outside of summer months. Lifeguarded from July – September.
