Cromer, as a seaside town, has always been a place associated with summer holidays and sunshine.

And as the nights begin to draw in, what better way to remember sunnier times, than looking back at pictures celebrating Cromer’s history as a place for both holidaymakers and locals?

Pictured in 1972 are people heading off from Cromer on a bus trip to Naples. While in this photo from 1956, Whit Monday daytrippers arrive in the seaside town to enjoy a bank holiday on the beach.

Cromer also has many popular events - enjoyed by visitors and townspeople alike - including this picture from 1982 of the packed seafront at Cromer Carnival as revellers enjoy the fancy dress parade.

The annual waiters’ race is also a highlight of the Carnival, shown here in this photo from 1963.
