Visit Sheringham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Sheringham, Norfolk. Another in the chain of pleasant seaside resorts around the Norfolk coast. It faces north and has a shingly beach with sand at low tide. Really there are two Sheringhams: Lower Shenngham is the resort and Upper Sheringham is the village built on the hillside above the coastal strip. As with Cromer and the other resorts Lower Sheringham developed at the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. The hotels are typical of their time, but much newer is the cliff-top terrace dating from 1936, by which time the Roman Catholic Church of St Joseph was completed. This was an early work of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and was commenced in 1910. St Peter's is a Victorian church, built in 1895 in the Early English style.
Upper Sheringham's All Saints Church is mainly Perpendicular in style and has a fine 15th-century screen with an interesting overhang. Among the carved bench-ends is one representing a woman in a shroud. There are good brasses and a fine wall monument to Abbot Upcher by Bacon and Manning.
Sheringham Hall was built to the design of Humphry Repton, 1812-17. The grounds are certainly planned by him, although authorities think the house is more likely to be by his son.
