Planning a school or other group visit

We welcome visits from schools and other groups.


Essential information

If you're planning a school or other group visit to Cromer Parish Church, please read this information carefully, then complete the Visit Planning form at the bottom of the page and submit it.

The information you provide will help us to help you by making the most suitable arrangements for your visit, so that you have a safe, enjoyable and worthwhile time at the Parish Church. We offer support from experienced guides and have supporting information and resources for different age groups. To help us plan for your visit, we need the right information so that we can choose the right people to work with you and manage things effectively, especially during the busy summer months.

Groups must be supervised by an appropriate number of adults. This is your responsibility, and we expect you to apply standard adult:child ratios according to age at all times - for the group overall and in any smaller groups.

We have a pair of Peregrine Falcons nesting on the tower this summer, so the tower is closed to all visitors until further notice. We know that this will disappoint many visitors but it simple isn’t possible to climb the tower while the birds are there. Thank you for your patience and understanding. When visiting, you should probably allow up to an hour to explore the church.

We have a large number of visitors, and anyone planning to come with a group should contact Anne Cottingham (our group visits coordinator) well in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangements and avoid clashes with other groups and other events. The best way to do this is by completing the Visit Planning Form, below.

Please work carefully through the form, completing all the tabs before submitting the form. Required fields are marked with a red * and you won't be able to submit the form until all these are correctly completed. You can jump back and forth between the tabs to amend or add information, but it isn't possible, at present, to save the form and return to it later. You should, therefore, plan to complete it at one sitting, which takes about 10 minutes. Submitting the form sends the information to our School and Group Visits Coordinator. Once you have submitted the form, you should see a message that it has been successfully sent and receive a copy by email. If you don't see that message or don't receive the email, please use the Contact menu to alert the Website Administrator.
