A brief history of CromerA brief history of Cromer

For centuries, Cromer was a popular fishing town famous for its Pier and Pavilion Theatre, where shows occur during the summer and the winter. Cromer has shallow water, which is clean, making it perfect for catching tasty crabs. Queen Elizabeth the first conceded the privilege to the occupants of Cromer to send out wheat, grain, and malt for the upkeep of their town and towards the revamping of the dock. Cromer was home to two thriving railway stations known as the Great Eastern and The Midland and Great Northern, which both competed. These railway stations brought in many VIPS, including tourists.

“Out of the blue" was one of the Pavilion theatre's famous shows hosted by Ronnie Brandon. Cromer is home to the 14th Century Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul. Both have stunning architectural features and towers over 150ft high. Cromer has a great dock that is 500 feet since quite a while ago, worked by Alfred Thorne, and opened in 1901. Cromer had a few ports, yet the dock that we know and love today was assembled right around 120 years prior.
