Welcome to Sheringham

Special - Diverse - Friendly - Established. Sheringham appeals to a wide variety of age groups, which is why many choose to make return visits and many more to make Sheringham their home.

Over the years it has expanded into a thriving town with many diverse shops, places to eat, and places to visit. The sandy beach at Sheringham holds the European Blue Flag award for cleanliness which it has held for many years. Sheringham holds regular events throughout the year including The Sheringham Carnival in August and the 1940's weekend in September.
