An interesting part of Cromer history - it is free and does not need a big time commitment. Situated next to the beach by the previous lifeboat station.

The R N L I Blogg Musium is certainly worth a visit whilst in Cromer. It's all about the history of the life boat service. We really enjoyed our visit.

Nicely set modern museum around the old wooden lifeboat which has a lot of children activities and would be a good place to educate them on the risks of the seas.
