The king of crustaceans is abundant in this pretty Norfolk town. Lobster, whether you prefer it simply cooked or blinged up Thermidor-style, is on offer here alongside a colourful array of crab shacks, buzzing pubs and cliff-top walks.

Sandcastle rating

Pebble and rock dominate, so you’re best off searching for sea life in the rock pools.

Surf’s up

The waves here and in nearby East Runton are some of the best on the Anglian coast.

Don’t miss

Come summer, Sheringham Park is a riot of rhododendrons and azaleas.


Order locally-caught haddock, crab and lobster at superior sea shack Rocky Bottoms . Also try The Funky Mackerel , which serves enormous hot chocolates.

Rest sun-kissed limbs

The location of pub-with-rooms The Two Lifeboats , on the seafront, can’t be beaten.
