Mundesley is a small town on the North East coast of Norfolk. Like many villages and resorts in this region, Mundesley was once a great seaport, before the advent of the railways brought Victorian holiday-makers in their droves. Still popular today the town retains an unspoilt, secluded charm which seems detached from other busier resorts on the East Coast.
The picture-postcard seafront
, with its colorful beach huts and little fishing boats, provides a more tranquil alternative to the busier resorts found further along the coast. And despite tourism being Mundelsey's primary industry fishermen still harvest the local waters, launching their boats from the beach in search of their daily catch.
Mundesley lies within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beaut
y - its award-winning Blue flag beach offers safe, clean bathing. But although shallow, the waters around Mundesley have eroded much of the cliffs, fields and houses found around these parts. And sadly the sea's incursion continues unabated.
The town centre includes a small collection of shops, pubs and tea-rooms as well the Maritime Museum; one of the UK's smallest. All Saints Church
sitting atop the nearby cliffs is one of the town's most historically significant buildings as is the restored 19th century Stow Mill, found on the outskirts of the town. For Mundesley cottages see our info below.

countryside. A cycle and footpath have also been created which run along the length of railway - fares are between £4 and £7. Other activities are provided by the nearby Adventure Island and its crazy-golf course - it is located next to the Maritime Museum (see below).
Food and drink
The Ship Inn on Beach Road is a popular watering hole and features a large pub garden and games area. It also serves local ales and beers. The Royal Hotel
is also worth a visit and maintains its period charm with heavy wooden beams throughout and an open-fire. They host live shows on Thursdays and provide an ever-changing a la carte menu that consists of twenty different specials - there's also a carvery on Wednesdays and Sundays.
History and Culture
Mundesley Maritime Museum on Beach Road affords some impressive views of the coastal area. The interior displays photographs and equipment used by the coastguard including a pair of binoculars which allows visitors to admire the sea views
. There's also a WWII memorial nearby which honours the 26 Royal Engineers who lost their lives clearing mines from Norfolk's beaches. The monument has been constructed around a German bomb casing. For more information see the visitor centre which provides a local guide to the town - it is open from 10am - 4pm during the spring and summer months.
Supermarkets and shops
There's a post office and newsagents in the town as well as a pharmacy on the High Street. Visitors looking to re-stock during their self catering holiday break are directed to the Sainsbury's supermarket on Bacton Road, which is just outside Mundesley.
