Sooo..you think you know Cromer?

One of the things that makes the so-called ‘Gem of the north Norfolk coast’ so special is the sense of history you get when walking about the place.

And the tale of how Cromer has changed over the centuries is fascinating.

It has gone from a slightly inland fishing village, to a market town, to a seaside playground of royalty and the rich, to a popular family resort beloved by folks across the UK and abroad.

We’ve put together this fun quiz so you can test how much you know about Cromer’s history.

See how you go, and don’t forget to challenge your friends to do better!
