Bright sunshine was the order of the day for this visit. The beach is handy for the town, which is full of independent traders and at least one excellent fish ‘n chip shop. This is an affluent area, bordering the glamorous North Norfolk beaches and acting as a hub between the countryside and the coast. On this occasion an 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.

The scene at Sheringham.
Sheringham is one of Norfolk’s best known seaside towns. It feels traditional and has a relaxed atmosphere. On and around the town’s main high street you’ll find good shops and ice cream parlours. At low tide there’s a sandy beach with rock pools. It’s worth taking a stroll along the clifftops, where there are fine views to the beach and 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.
