Aylmerton, Sheringham, Cromer and North Norfolk

Although this area is called Roman Camp, in fact brown ironstone and slag found here date back to Saxon and medieval times. The site has been used from the earliest days as a coastal warning point as the area called the Runtons was considered one of the most dangerous places on the Norfolk coast for pirates and invaders.

Aylmerton Church
The church of St John the Baptist dates back to the 15th-century. It has a typical Norfolk flint Norman round tower thought to be over 700 years old, and the chancel windows date from the middle of the 14th century. The building holds some beautiful carvings including a traceried screen dating from 1500 and four elaborate bench ends with poppy heads which were carved over 400 years ago.

With its sandy beaches and elegant Edwardian promenade, Cromer is just right for building sand castles or relaxing by the sea. The famous Victorian Cromer Pier is an ideal place to spend sunrise and sunset over the sea or to watch The annual Cromer Pier Show. Cromer is perhaps best known outside Norfolk for its delicious crabs and those who enjoy a fun challenge can regularly be found crab catching off the pier. At the end of the pier is the Pavilion Theatre, which provides unpretentious summer evening entertainment.

Cromer's long seafaring history is still evident and the lifeboat museum and lighthouse are worthy of a visit. Norfolk's best-loved countryside provides enjoyable walks and rambles. Within easy reach are the steam railways of Sheringham and Holt, several nature reserves, bird sanctuaries and stately homes for which Norfolk is famous. Enjoy easy access to Norfolk's Rich Heritage of ancient churches, parklands and rural life.

Sheringham is a traditional seaside town, with an attractive old-fashioned unchanging atmosphere and sandy beaches washed by shallow waters. Until the end of the 1800s this town was little more than a small fishing village, nowadays it has its own buoyant appeal in summer with the entertainment ranging from the traditional penny arcade to one of the most intimate little theatres in the country.

Sheringham Little Theatre offers an incredibly large range of entertainment all year round. There are shows, films, music of all kinds, celebrity evenings, children's events, workshops, art exhibitions, literature events, education and outreach, all under one little roof.

Felbrigg Hall
The Felbrigg estate, owned by the National Trust, covers around 1,760 acres of parkland and mixed woodland and includes a wildlife lake with Felbrigg Hall, a Jacobean house at its centre. The dominant feature is the 520-acre Great Wood which surrounds the house. Walkers continue to enjoy access to the network of footpaths, which leads from our gardens. Many are old rights of way, which run through grassland, woodland pasture and woods. Hardwoods, notably sweet chestnut, beech and oak, have long grown here. Especially popular is the well-known 'Lions Mouth', an attractive beauty spot which can be reached in minutes from the gardens at The Roman Camp Inn.

A magnificent Jacobean house with gardens and park, it is famed for its long gallery, fine tapestries, paintings and rare books. Watch out! It is reputedly home to the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second queen.
