Cycle Route



0117 926 8893


Hull to Harwich,
NR27 9EL


A massive 370-mile journey if you're game, or you can enjoy just part of the route as it travels through Norfolk to Kings Lynn, via Norwich & Fakenham. There is ever-changing scenery, from cathedral cities to towns, villages and peaceful countryside.

Mainly easy route but long distance. This is mostly an on-road route but from Norwich to Themelthorpe it is off-road on the Marriott's Way. On the Marriott's Way there are some difficult surface conditions between Reepham and Themelthorpe (and on the alternative route between Whitwell and Themelthorpe).

Links: National Cycle Network Route 1 links with the Norfolk Coast Cycleway at Wighton, and with Route 13 at Gateley, just south of Fakenham. It also uses part of the Marriott's Way, and forms part of the North Sea Cycle Route.
