Sheringham Museum  



A Visit to the Museum

The Museum enjoys a spectacular location on the seafront at Sheringham - from the bottom of the High Street, turn right along the sea wall with its historic fishing and lifeboat scenes for about 100 metres and the museum will be in front of you. Go down the steps at the end of the sea wall to get to the entrance.

Front View


The museum is, of course, fully accessible, with lift access to all three floors and room for wheelchairs in all exhibition areas. To avoid those seawall steps you can take the ramp to the left when you reach the seawall, not right, then double back to the museum entrance.

Because the building nestles into the cliff face, it is larger than you might expect, so it's easy to spend an hour and a half (or more) exploring our collection. We don't have a cafe, so our tickets are all-day tickets - you can drop in and out to one of the many great cafes in the town whenever you wish.

There are regular rail and bus services to Sheringham, all terminating at the railway station, where there is also a large pay-and-display car park. The museum is a moderate walk away - approx. 8-15 minutes - and there are two smaller pay-and-display car parks quite close to the museum, one near the beach end of the High Street. and the other off Cliff Road, to the east of the museum.

Tower View

Our tower offers splrndid views over the town, along the coast in both directions and of course out to sea. It is reached by a lighthouse-like set of steps, so it isn't very accessible. However, you might like to see the view on your computer - click HERE to try it out!
