One of Norfolk's most famous coastal towns, Sheringham boasts beautiful award winning sandy beaches surrounded by stunning English countryside and pine forests. Once a small fishing town, Sheringham is now a thriving tourist hot spot - the motto of the town is 'Mare Ditat Pinusque Decorat', Latin for the 'The sea enriches and the pine adorns'.
Sheringham is centred around a traditional high street with a wide range of privately owned shops, restaurants and traditional pubs alongside a theatre, museum, library and a health centre. On Saturday's throughout the year and Wednesday's in the summer season, there is a popular market in the car park next to the railway station, near to our office, which attracts large crowds even out of the holiday season.
Sheringham plays host to a number of nationally recognised festivals, the 1940's Steam Gala, The Coast Festival, Potty Festival, Viking Festival, Sheringham Carnival and Lobster & Crab Festival to name a few! Visitors come from across the country to join in the celebrations.
Sheringham is also a great place for leisure pursuits, with both the Splash Leisure Centre and a great cliff top 18-hole golf course. The town also benefits from a strong range of schools including Woodfields for disabled children.
The town has fantastic transport links, benefitting from train lines to Norwich, Holt and Cromer as well as road links connecting Sheringham to the rest of North Norfolk. The railway line to Cromer and Norwich remains open as the Bittern Line. Beyond Sheringham station, the line has been preserved as the North Norfolk Railway, also known as 'The Poppy Line'.
