The Norfolk Coast Path runs for 63 miles from Hunstanton to Sea Palling, with the majority of this walking trail running through the dramatic landscape of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walkers can experience seaside towns and villages, tidal marshes teeming with wildlife, wide sandy beaches, pine woodlands and huge skies.
It forms part of the Peddar’s Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail; one of the National Trail family of fifteen top long-distance walks in England and Wales.
On 12 December 2014, the Norfolk Coast Path was extended to include a new section. This runs for 25 miles between Weybourne and Sea Palling. Taking in unique coastal towns and villages as well as cliff top and beach walks, this trail passes through some stunning scenery with fascinating geology and history to discover. The new stretch of the Trail forms Norfolk’s first section of the England Coast Path and is the latest phase to open. This is the ambitious plan to create a National Trail all the way around the Coastline of England within the next few years.
It’s a great way to get the family active this summer and an easy way to explore the best of the Norfolk coast if you’re unfamiliar with the area.
