"memories of childhood" Cromer by sourbugger

Cromer Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 31 photos

For many years my parents brought us to this town for our annunal 2-week summer holiday.

The very child-freindly hotel (more unusual to finf in those days) was the main draw. The Colne House hotel is now retirement flats - how times change.

I visit occasionally now, and although it fell on hard times for a number of years, as did many seaside resorts in the UK, there is still a certain charm that draws the visitors.

    Lovely pier and promenade. Interesting read about the lifeboat. Good luck winning the lotto. The Hotel Paris seems like a great investment.

    That hotel would be quite an endeavour but a worthy one I am sure! Thanks for a lovely glimpse :)

    This brings back childhood memories for me too. I was so disappointed when we couldn't eat our crabs!

    Sounds like you won't be rushing back to Cromer -lol! We go there for day trips when we need to slow down a bit & go back in time about 2 decades!! Good, honest tips - thanks! Marion.
