Fishing was at the heart of Sheringham in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, before the town was transformed into a holiday resort.

A 200 strong fleet dwindled to a handful, but the railways came along and brought in coaches full of holidaymakers to change the town’s fortunes.

The town’s history, and a unique collection of its old lifeboats, are housed in two seafront museums.

The town’s Little Theatre is a busy community-run arts venue, whose summer drama programme is one of the few remaining repertory seasons in the country.

The North Norfolk Railway heritage rail station chuffs with steam trains, and just outside the town is the National Trust’s scenic Sheringham Park, famous for its rhododendrons.

A popular seaside cafe famed for its flapjacks and family atmosphere will not reopen after the lockdown.
