Gorgeous large church at the seaside in a delightful garden setting. Massive tower open to climb up during the summer season from May.

The church dominates the townscape and is much larger than expected for a town this size. There are large windows down both sides, although not all contain stained glass those that do are really impressive, including a newly installed one.

You can climb up to the tower roof and get the best view in Norfolk. Happened to b ethereal for the organ recital rehearsal and enjoyed the experience. Other churches could learn for this, with cafe and gift shop.

Greeted by volunteers with leaflets to guide you around. Lovely stain glass windows and for a cost of £2 you can climb the tower. Also has a cafe with homemade cakes and scones.

We visited this church with my daughter and son-in-law recently and decided to climb the tower (the tallest in Norfolk). The fact in brackets should have alerted us to the fact that there are a lot of steps and it's quite a cardio workout but...More
