West Norfolk is a walkers paradise; discover miles of shoreline and superb countryside footpaths.
You can hop on and off the Coastliner bus service from King’s Lynn to Wells (a changeover needed to venture on to Cromer from there) 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 Coastliner 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.
