Sheringham is the seaside town that's got it all! Jurassic fossils to uncover, heritage steam railway, a bustling high street, a theatre, fresh seafood and a thriving food and drink scene. No wonder it is such a favourite for visitors all year round.
It's hard to believe now that Sheringham was just a small fishing village, with its annual events now bringing thousands into the town for Sheringham Carnival and the ever fabulous 1940's weekend.
Dates for the diary
Sheringham 1940's Weekend September Dates announced each year
A hugely popular event which the whole of Sheringham town gets involved in. With decorated shops, 1940's music in the streets, dancing and people walking the streets in costume, you will feel like you've been transported back in time.
A ride on the North Norfolk Railway from Sheringham to Holt is a must, and then back for some live music and a jive on the platform.
Viking Scira Festival
This is a great weekend full of impressive events. Axe throwing, torch light procession and a ceremonial burning of a 28ft Viking longboat on the beach!
Endless opportunity for making and learning are open to everyone, and are often free.
New Years Day Dip
For those brave enough, this run into the sea is sure to blast away any sore heads from New Years' celebrations.
For the rest of us - a good excuse to grab a take away coffee and watch.
Breakfast, Brunch and Afternoon Tea
The Whelk Coppers is always our first suggestion for a fantastic breakfast. Offering a large range of dishes, including many gluten and dairy free, a wonderful sea view, historic building and dog friendly - this place is a must.
Everything is homemade by Jess and her team, including the incredible sausage rolls.
Take Aways and Street Food
Stubby's Pizza brand new to the high street, these are freshly prepared, oven fired pizzas with some gorgeous toppings.
Eat in or take away, and just a minute away from the sea front, they make the perfect picnic for the beach.
Fat Teds Streat Food is a relatively new addition to the high street but it's made a big impact with their unique approach to street eating.
Flatbreads, burgers, and their delicious loaded fries - be sure to go there with an appetite!!
