Red Lobster Gallery

Red Lobster Gallery first opened its doors in 2012 and is a privately owned family retail business, based in the quintessential British seaside town of Sheringham, North Norfolk.

After a career in marketing with agency Lindon Parriss Limited, owner Alison Parriss is continuing a family history of Sheringham retail businesses which started in 1945, with her grandfather’s shop, Parriss Jewellers, and her mother who ran The Flower Centre from 1974 until 2006 — the former occupiers of 25 Station Road.

For a unique shopping experience we have carefully sourced and curated a selection of products that aim to offer you something different. From art and sculpture, home decor, lighting, clocks and glorious gifts.

For us it’s not just the products that count, but the stories and people behind them, the 'how and why' they create the pieces. It is also about offering you excellent customer service and knowledge.

Red Lobster Gallery contributes to the community of Sheringham in many different ways. Supporting local events, working closely with Experience Sheringham and fundraising charitable donations for the Sheringham Hedgehog Hotel.
