Lifeboats galore

Well kept old lifeboats. History of Sheringham. Make sure you visit the Sheringham shoal room. The local generators.

The museum has several lifeboats on display and we found it very interesting to see them close up. There is also a great viewing tower which tells you all about the off-shore wind farm visible from Sheringham. A good little museum worth an hour of anyone's time. Only downside - nowhere for a coffee!

We were having a stroll and came across this lovely building with no charge for the entry. After climbing the winding stairs we went into a room that had a wonderful view of the sea and the wind turbines with all the information on the walls and they had binoculars for a better view. It would appeal to all ages.

This was a great little museum, housing seven boats. We particularly liked the information about the Ganseys. The staff were very helpful.

A very well laid out compact museum. It covers most aspects of Sheringham. If you take your time expect to be there for about an hour.

Be aware that you can visit the the Windfarm exhibition and the viewing area FREE of charge, you don't have to pay for visiting the Lifeboat Museum if you don't want to. The displays and videos have not been updated since before the Windfarm was built although the hand outs were up to date. Certainly worth a quick visit of... More
