From coast to country, explore our great walks and trails...

West Norfolk is a walkers paradise; discover miles of shoreline and superb countryside footpaths.

At Holme-next-the-Sea, the ancient Peddars Way joins the Norfolk Coast Path, where even the shortest walk reveals a wealth of wild flowers. Rabbits, foxes and other mammals are a also frequent sight.

You can hop on and off the CoastHopper bus service from King’s Lynn to Sheringham, to explore the coast and relax whilst someone else does the driving.

Stretching from Hunstanton to Cromer, running through the Norfolk coast, The Norfolk Coast Path is a very popular walk, with the path well covered by the Coasthopper bus service too.

There are various easy access walks and paths within the areas of Sandringham, Titchwell, and Holkham which have been developed by the Norfolk Coast Millennium Access Project.

Further south, the Sir Peter Scott Walk follows the old sea bank along the Wash from King’s Lynn, west – you can take the passenger ferry from King’s Lynn to west bank of the River Great Ouse to pick up the start of this walk.

Further inland, the Fen Rivers Way, a long distance path between Cambridge and King’s Lynn traces the course of the rivers that drain slowly across the Fens into the Wash.

The Nar Valley Way also starts at King’s Lynn and tracks east following the course of the River Nar terminating at the Rural Life museum at Gressenhall. The River Nar is recognised as one of the finest chalk streams in East Anglia.

These long distance paths, together with hundreds of shorter local circular and linear walks, form a network suitable for every kind of walker in some of England’s most unspoilt countryside.
