We have been to the Shell Gallery several times over the last few years and it never ceases to amaze and delight. The artistry and skill of Peter Coke is astonishing. Can't wait to go again.

We frequently visit Sheringham but had never found this little gem before. We were astonished to see the beautiful shell works of art and all free of charge (we did spot a donation box). Simply delightful.
