Potted History

Welcome to Home Park at Cromer Hall. This year marks an exciting new venture as we launch Symphony Concerts by The Sea. Enjoy your picnic, listening to live music in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

 

The venue sits on a ridge above Cromer meaning visitors enjoy wonderful views over Norfolk’s most iconic coastal town and out to the deep blue of the North Sea.

 

Enjoy a rare glimpse of Cromer Hall that the public doesn’t see! After being destroyed by fire in the 1820’s, the hall was rebuilt in a Gothic revival style. Architect William John Donthorn insisted that local building materials should be used. At sunset you can see the fading rays reflecting off the knapped flint.

 

As the British Symphony Orchestra’s music resonates across the park, notice the wonderfully imposing tower of The Church of St Peter and St Paul punch into the evening’s sky – the atmosphere adds to a fun night out.

Did you know…

The inspiration behind The Hound of the Baskervilles…Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stayed at Cromer Hall during a golfing holiday. Here he heard the local legend of Black Shuck, a ghostly dog-like creature that haunted the countryside around Cromer. It is believed this tale provided the inspiration for the monstrous creature in his iconic thriller set on Dartmoor in Devon. Fear not…we have security on site. They’re trained to handle dogs as well as people!

 

Cromer boasts the tallest church bell tower in Norfolk…The Church of St Peter and St Paul was founded in the 14th century but rebuilt in the late 19th century by architect, Arthur Blomfield. At 160ft 4ins (48.87 m) its bell tower is the highest in the county.

Travelling by taxi or being dropped off

Taxi Drop Off / Pick Up will be located at the concert entrance off the A149. Taxis will be asked to pull into one of the lay-bys before the entrance then exit. Please be aware that you’ll need to walk from this point to the concert field. This is over uneven fields so please wear suitable shoes.
If you are arriving by taxi or being dropped off, make sure you have made arrangements for your return journey in advance as there are a limited number of taxi companies operating in rural areas. In addition our venues do not have public telephones and most sites have poor mobile reception. Arrange to meet your taxi at the designated taxi pick up/drop off point which will be sign-posted on site.

Travelling on foot

If you are walking to the venue along the public highway please be aware that it will be dark when you leave. We advise you to use the A149 Holt Road as street lights are present and there is a footpath running alongside the road.

Please note there is a short walk from the concert venue over a field to this gate. We will have basic lighting but the whole route will only be ‘dimly lit’. For your safety you may like to consider bringing a torch and hi-viz vest for your journey home. Walkers and cars will be separated.
