Hunstanton Heritage Centre


Heritage Centre,
PE36 6BB


A journey through Hunstanton's past from Neolithic/Bronze Age; the development as a purpose-built Victorian resort; its rapid growth and the changes due to the increase in tourism from the mid 1800s.

Celebrating Hunstanton's history including the arrival in 855AD of a 15 year old Saxon boy called Edmund, later to become King, martyr and first Patron Saint of England. Visitors can see the wonderful collection of fossils from the beach when it was truly tropical. We also have the Vault Cinema with 55” TV screen showing films of the railway, floods and other historical TV programmes.

If you have not already visited the Heritage Centre, at the old NatWest Bank on the corner of Greevegate and Northgate, it is well worth a look and a wander around the very interesting displays of our Sunny Hunny in "times gone by”.

The Centre is manned by a lovely band of volunteers. Admission is FREE but donations are always very welcome.
