Cromer became a seaside resort in the early 19th Century, with visitors including the future King Edward VII, who played golf here. Cromer's Victorian pier and the adjoining stretch of 'Poppyland' added to its popularity.
The Cromer crab is now the main source of income for the town's fishermen. Around 10 boats now ply their trade from the foot of the gangway on the east beach, with several shops selling their fresh catch in the town. Cromer lifeboat station became Norfolk's first in 1804, and Henry Blogg later became the country's most decorated lifeboatman, receiving the RNLI gold medal for heroism three times, and the silver medal four times.
