Description

NEW 2019 Edition

The 130 mile Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail combines the best of inland and coastal walking, and is ideal for people new to long-distance walks. Beginning near Thetford, the route heads north west to near Hunstanton, then follows the heritage coast to Hopton-on-Sea, taking roughly one week to complete.

Seasons

thanks to a reputation for the least rainfall in the UK and a normally sunny outlook, this long-distance path can be enjoyed year round

Centres

Knettishall, Little Cressingham, Castle Acre, Snettisham, Hunstanton, Brancaster, Wells next to the Sea, Blakeney, Sheringham, Cromer, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Great Yarmouth

Difficulty

the path is a waymarked National Trail so easy to follow. There are no huge sections of ascent or difficult terrain. Most of the walk is on forest tracks, country lanes, sand, waterside paths and cliff tops. Overall, it’s easy-moderate with the length being the only thing some may find a challenge – especially since it has been extended to reach the border of Suffolk!

Must See

a proper walk of two halves, walkers will see/experience: an old Roman Road, an array of birds (observatories, too), windmills, churches, picturesque villages, castle ruins, earthworks, Bronze Age tumuli, carved stone sculptures, sand dunes, striped cliffs, extensive sea views, salt marshes and traditional British seaside resorts
