In 2019, a pair of Peregrine Falcons set up home on the tower which, to protect their nest site, was closed all last summer. The birds have now returned for the 2020 breeding season, so we do not expect to be able to open the tower at all in the foreseeable future.
We know that a lot of people look forward to climbing the tower when they visit Cromer but that simply isn't possible at the moment. Thank you for your patience and understanding. The pictures below give you an idea of the view and, while we realise that it's not the same as actually climbing the tower, it's the best we can do at the moment.
The Parish Church is open daily from about 9 a.m. until about 4 p.m. in the winter and about 5 p.m. in the summer and we welcome visitors and those wanting a quiet space to think or pray. All services are suspended at present, but there's normally a communion service on Wednesday morning at 10.00 a.m. and Sunday services are at 9.00 a.m., 10.45 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. (also at 10.30 a.m. at St Martin's). Everyone is welcome at these services but at the Parish Church, access for visitors will be restricted (or the church closed to visitors altogether) during these times and when any other service or private event is taking place.
The tower is currently closed. See further details in the opening paragraph, above.
