Perfectly situated close to Cromer, Great Yarmouth and Norwich, this small coastal holiday resort has a sandy beach and a number of caravan sites.
Its church of St. Andrew stands on a hill near the ocean. Nearby are the ruins of Bromholm Priory (also known as Bacton Abbey) which was founded by a Cistercian order in 1113 as part of Castle Acre Priory.
The building is mentioned in Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’ and was visited by Henry 111 in 1233. A number of man-made concrete sea walls guard the coastline.
