Cromer Parish Church lies in the town center and you can't miss it standing out in its glory.
it has some fine architecture on the outside and pleasant grounds to sit and watch the world pass by.
The inside is not as big as you think but it is worth looking at with some good wood and stone carvings but to me, the main feature was the stained glass window at the rear on the left as you walk in, as the sun shines through it it seems to illuminate and stand out.

In the chapel on the right of the alter is a window from William Morris - another piece of interest to this large, light church that also has other interesting apostle panes and currently storyboards around the edge

A stunning example of first rate Flintwork. The level of maintenance is a joy to see and as well as its very rich history, it is right next door to Cromer museum

The Parish church of Cromer is well worth a visit to see the stained glass windows and the sanctuary with its magnificent carved choir stalls.
The tower (with its 171 steps to reach the top) is the highest in Norfolk and can be seen as a landmark from wherever you enter Cromer. It is also of course a vital landmark for seafarers.
The volunteers give you a warm welcome and are knowledgeable and interesting.
Well worth a visit.

We visited today, loved it. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. We went up the bell tower to the roof, the view was spectacular. I would suggest a couple of things though, it would be a good idea to put a light at the very top of the stairs, it is really dark as you go down the steep steps. I also think it would be a great opportunity to make some money for repairs by putting a sign outside near the pavement informing people they can go up and see the panoramic views for just £2 each, we only found out by chance when my husband saw it on a leaflet. Thanks for making us welcome.
