I am photographer in residence at the hotel

 

Barlife work and Cromer fishermen are on show as acrylic images in the restaurant

The bar area has a regular changing theme throughout the year.

At the moment we are showing The Household Cavalry.

The Drum horse

This massive but gentle creature, seemingly bomb proof, is a big attraction to everyone, especially kids. They stand in awe looking up at him, probably dimly aware that he could flatten them without even realising it.

The Drum horse holds the rank of Major in the Regiment and when in full regalia must be saluted.

Tell the kids, I’m sure their mark of respect  would not go unnoticed by the military.
