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. A pair of Peregrine Falcons has set up home on the tower, which will remain closed to visitors until further notice. 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.
We welcome visitors and those wanting a quiet space to think or pray. There is a 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. Everyone is welcome at these services, but access for visitors might be restricted (or the church closed to visitors) during these times and when any other service or private event is taking place.
Once the tower re-opens, later in the year, normal opening hours will be 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 11.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m. on Saturday - except when the church is in use, or when the weather or other circumstances, make it unsafe to climb. The responsiblity for all such matters rests with the Stewards on duty and their decision is final. We make a small charge for climbing the tower: £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children (5-17). There is no charge for under-fives. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The tower is about 50m (160 feet) high and, on a fine day, the view is magnificent. The steep, narrow, spiral stair has more than 170 stone steps and is the only means of access. The pictures give you an idea of what it's like, including the view and the steepness and narrowness of the stairs, to help you make a decision about whether to climb.
The tower is currently closed and will remain closed until further notice.
