Stay in comfort, whilst exploring the beautiful coast.
As you enter Sheringham the first thing that you will probably notice is the old Steam railway. It is lovely to see these old trains still running, and thrills all ages. If it's a little pricey to take the train to Holt, you can buy a platform pass instead. This allows you to fully explore the station. On Platform 3 you'll find a wooden train carriage that has a childrens' activity area inside. On Platform 1 you can take tea and browse the souvenir shop.
The High street can get really busy to stroll down, so we often weave off down the back streets especially if we have our beagle Hester with us. It can be quite difficult keeping a dog and little ones on the pavement at busy times.
Whenever I come to Sheringham I like to visit the Shell museum. It's only small, and it was set up by Peter Coke, who collected over 200 different shells from all over the world, which he made into sculptures. I guarantee you won't have seen anything like this before.
At the end of the High street towards the left you can find Sheringham's Museum, (The Mo). It has a collection of old lifeboats charting the history of the private ‘Upcher’ lifeboats, and also houses the Shoal Offshore Wind Farm visitor center, designed by one of the teams behind the Science Museum..
Market day is on a Saturday and Wednesday from April till November, and takes up the whole of the large car park, which can make it tricky to park.
If you want to escape the crowds and beach for a while then you could head to Sheringham Park. It is a National Trust property, and is a joy to walk around the landscaped park and gardens, especially between late March and early June, when the rhododendrons are blooming (It boosts that it has some of the most varieties in the country!). The park is about 1.5miles from the center of Sheringham, and is a lovely place to walk your dogs. There is also a wooden viewing tower here which offers fantastic sea views, though you'll have to climb up a few steps!
