Deep History Coast Visitor Centre opens
A new visitor centre for the Deep History Coast opens this Easter. We have revamped Cromer’s’ Tourist Information Centre, turning it into a discovery centre for Norfolk’s Deep History Coast.
Visitors will learn about the incredible fossils which have been found on the beaches along the coast, including amongst others: ancient footprints discovered in Happisburgh – the oldest human footprints discovered outside Africa! And a near complete mammoth skeleton found at West Runton. The centre will tell the story of these and many more incredible fossil finds.
The Deep History Coast story is told through, bright, colourful, and family friendly displays. A cinema style AV display introduces visitors to the Deep History Coast and the amazing creatures that used to live here. New interactive displays show visitors what to see, and do. The whole scheme is designed as a call-to-action to ‘go out and explore’.
We’ve also redesigned the tourist information centre and retail area to complement the new exhibition space.
