Cromer’s past in an enchanting nutshell
Step inside a tiny fisherman’s cottage and imagine life in Cromer at the end of the 19th century. Colourful displays chart the town’s history as an early Victorian seaside resort, resplendent with fine hotels and scandalous mixed bathing.
The town is in a geological area of international importance. Find out why in the Geology Gallery with its fine collection of fossils, which include bones from one of the area’s most famous finds, the West Runton elephant – Britain’s oldest and most complete elephant fossil.
Norfolk’s Olive Edis was a pioneering female photographer. A new exhibition of her work features beautiful portrait photographs and autochromes of North Norfolk fishermen alongside rare early 20th century colour photographs.
