Season: summer

Bright sunshine was the order of the day for this summer re-visit.  The beach is handy for the town here, characterful and unspoilt through decades, full of independent traders and excellent fish ‘n chips.  This is an affluent area, bordering the glamorous North Norfolk beaches and a hub between the countryside and the coast.  The ebb tide showcased Sheringham’s flat, sandy beach and visitors thronged the narrow streets, which were decked with bunting.  Time stood still for a moment and all was well.

The scene at Sheringham.

Season: autumn

Sheringham is one of Norfolk’s best known seaside towns.  It feels traditional and has a relaxed atmosphere. On and behind the town’s main high street you’ll find good shops, excellent fish n’ chips and ice cream parlours.  At low tide, there’s a sandy beach with rock pools.  It’s worth taking a stroll along the cliff tops, from where there are great views to the beach, with its ridge of pebbles and beautiful, sea-washed sands. Sheringham was once a tiny fishing village, known as Sheringham Hythe; most people lived inland, at the village of Upper Sheringham.
