East Runton

East Runton with its Blue Flag sandy beach is backed by sloping sandstone cliffs and countryside beyond. Alongside the neighbouring West Runton beach, you can explore rockpools and find fossils for it was at West Runton that a mammoth skeleton was discovered.


The villages of East and West Runton are situated between Sheringham and Cromer one mile apart on the north Norfolk Coast. Both Blue Flag beaches are unspoilt, with miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore and you can see Cromer Pier jutting out to sea in the distance.
