Description: Episode 8 // Cromer Pier Cromer is well known for its pier which has a lifeboat station and Pavilion Theatre, home to the UK’s only remaining traditional end of the pier variety show. The pier is an enduring example of a Victorian building, having withstood many storms and tidal surges. In 1923 Cromer Pier was extended to 500 feet, to create a lifeboat station at the end. This modern RNLI lifeboat station now houses a Tamar class lifeboat and is open to visitors. Cromer town centre has some lovely streets and lanes with good views of the town or sea. The streets contain some wonderful shops and galleries to browse ... from well-known shopping brands to individual galleries, selling locally produced art and gifts. There are also shops selling freshly caught Cromer crabs!
