Food Scene
We can highly recommend this fabulous, family-run restaurant, which is literally at the end of our road. It's a modern European bistro - one of the best on the north Norfolk coast (we feel). You need to call to book and leave an answerphone message.

A really good Nepalese restaurant, which isn’t as fatty or heavy as your usual curry house. Literally on the opposite side of the road as you get to the end of Augusta St. Also offer takeaway. Don’t be put off by the website…! www.thebankrestaurantsheringham.com

It took us a little while to discover this little gem of a tea room/café, but you’d have to go a long way to beat the breakfast experience at Whelk Coppers – overlooking the sea, good food and great service.

New to Sheringham, but with a handful of cafes already in North Norfolk, Grey Seal does a really good cup of coffee. They pride themselves on using single origin beans and espresso blends and do a great kid friendly hot chocolate. You’ll find the at the end of the High Street heading towards the sea.

Another great café, very family friendly and with fab views of the sea. Best to get there on foot via promenade - head east, past Sheringham Museum (The Mo) and it's 200 yards on your right. There is a small flight of steps to it but worth it for the view, delicious hot chocolate and flapjacks - they also do breakfast type baps on ciabatta.

Parks & Nature
Lovely National Trust property - Humphry Repton described Sheringham Park as his most favourite work! Lots of walks on paths suitable for bikes or scooters, plus a coffee shop and gift shop. In May it has the most beautiful display of rhododendrons. Every Saturday morning there is a park run here.

On the prom head left (west) along the prom to the Life Boat Station or right (east) along the prom – which can also take you into town. The beaches are off the prom – most have steps to the beach, although one heading east (opposite Ellie’s café) has a slope and the slope/slipway at the Life Boat Station. There are a few active cafes in the summer along the prom. In the summer we love to swim during both high and low tide. There is very shallow swimming water (ideal for kids) during low tide. When the tide comes in its great (for water friendly children) to body surf the waves. For adults and children it’s worth investing in some sea/aqua shoes and also a wetsuit for children.

There are several walks and we are no experts, but we can recommend the walk up (& over if you’re feeling energetic!) Beeston Bump with children, although it is important that small ones don’t run off and stick to the path to stay safe as you’re walking along the cliff – it’s completely safe if you stay on the path. Head east along the prom, past The Funky Mackerel, then up the steps next to the old converted Victorian Toilet block (appropriately named ‘The Wee Retreat’) and then turn left at the top of the slope – the views at the top of the bump are fabulous.

Getting Around
We are blessed with the old Poppy Line train line in Sheringham - where you'll also find the tourist information and gift shop. It's quite a sight to see and hear the steam trains. They run frequently to Holt via Weybourne – a lovely outing and during summer holidays also offers the option of going into Holt town centre via an old Routemaster bus. Please do always double check if the Routemaster is running! The regular bus service does run from just outside Holt station, but is very infrequent and the walk into Holt from the station is a good 20 mins – not ideal with children!

It was opened to the public in 1988 and is one of the largest privately owned military Museum in the UK. On certain days you can drive a tank! Large café - great for lunch and refreshments. Outside play area and picnic space, with superb views over the sea.
