The beach

Amble through the town centre 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. A beautiful pebble and sand beach with terrific rock pools, the perfect sand for making sandcastles!

The wonderful promenade is great for walking along at high tide. From here you will enjoy some amazing beach views.

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.

All year round there is a market held on Saturdays and also on Wednesdays between April and November.

Every year visitors flock to the town for a weeklong carnival filled with events and activities. There are competitions, beach sports, live music and a parade, just to name a few. Sheringham carnival takes place in August each year.
