The oldest part of the Hostel dates back to around 1890-1900 when it was designed (by Sir Giles Scott – Battersea Power Station, Waterloo Bridge, Tate Modern, Red Telephone Box) & built as a house for visiting priests to the Roman Catholic Church next door. It then became a home for babies followed by a children’s home & eventually YHA took it over around mid 1970’s (this Youth Hostel replaced one on Holt Road Sheringham). The Hostel today still retains the original Chapel with Oak panelling, stained glass windows & wooden vaulted ceiling – now a study room.
Meet the team
Adrian - a keen runner, walker (the dogs), and photographer. He's been Manager at Sheringham for last 15 years (been in YHA for over 30 years around the Country), getting to know the area really well. Going bald, supports Norwich City (or should that be the other way round!)
After two days spent in peace and solitude, you may welcome a change of pace. Extend your stay and take the train or bus to Cromer. The resort has plenty to offer with amusements, variety shows and the fascinating and fun Henry Blogg RNLI Museum.
