Map of Sheringham promenade

Sheringham promenade

Like nearby Cromer, this is a short town seafront promenade route with rugged cliff views at each end, colourful beach huts. A number of access points into the town and a short clifftop promenade for those panoramic views. Added to the existing artwork along the walls and historic information in 2016 a new set of amazing wall murals were added that make this an experience not to be missed.
