Fishermen’s Heritage Centre
The museum houses the historic Henry Ramey Upcher lifeboat and other collections relating to the Sheringham lifeboats that were paid for by the local Upcher family and manned by the fishermen themselves. This atmospheric museum is housed in a historic fishing shed on Sheringham’s seafront.

Other things to do nearby:
Next door to the centre is the Peter Coke Shell Gallery and along the promenade to the east is Sheringham Museum, containing former RNLI lifeboats which served Sheringham, with other displays about the town. The current RNLI station is on the promenade to the west. Enjoy the beach and the wide range of independent shops and perhaps take a trip on the Poppy Line preserved railway. Just out of town is Sheringham Park, and Felbrigg Hall is slightly further – both are National Trust. There are plenty of good cafes, restaurants, pubs, fish and chip shops, seafood and ice cream sellers in the area.
Recommended length of visit: 15 to 30 minutes
