A place of people and boats
On the seafront in Sheringham, a new museum has opened that tells the story of the town and its proud, brave and independent people.
Inside you will find bright, modern galleries where you can walk amongst an extraordinary historic fleet of lifeboats and fishing boats. Packed with fascinating stories and interesting details, memories of this museum will stay with you for a long time.
There's also a new viewing tower to climb for great views of the North Sea, Sheringham and the surrounding hills, and this summer will see the opening of a new display about the Sheringham Shoal wind farm and wind power.
