The Coast of Norfolk
The coast of Norfolk impresses with its great variety of outdoor activities. The coastline is a walkers paradise: The Norfolk Coast Path leads about 76 km (46 mi) along the beautiful beaches and coastline from Hunstanton to Cromer. From Holme-next-the-Sea you can follow an old Roman road on the Peddars Way to Suffolk.
Cyclists are not allowed on the Norfolk Coast Path and only partially allowed on the Peddars Way. However, there are more than enough other beautiful possibilities to explore the region on the bike. The long-distance cycle route National Cycle Route 1, which crosses the country from the South to the North, passes the coast of Norfolk.
Pay a visit to the historic city of King’s Lynn. This harbour city has roots in the middle ages and its cultural heritage is well preserved and presented not only in the local museum but in the whole cityscape. It is also a great starting point for any trip into the outdoors.
Further inland, the maritime flair of Norfolk is still present. The Broads are divided by lakes and rivers - this is great for water sports. Go on a sailing trip, explore the region by canoe or try windsurfing.
The well-developed cycle paths link the Broads and make a cycling trip a great adventure. Also walking is a great outdoor activity in the Norfolk Broads. The 90 km (55 mi) long Weaver’s Way crossed the Broads and the 56 km (34 mi) long Wherrymna’s Way guides walkers along the River Yare from Norwich to Great Yarmouth.
