On the Norfolk Coastal Path

Take a look at Norfolk Coast on film...

Uniquely Away takes the Norfolk Coast Path and finds beautiful scenery, unspoilt coastline and amazing wildlife.

Those looking for fresh air, exercise and stunning scenery this summer should consider following a stretch of the Norfolk Coast Path.

This long distance footpath runs 45 miles (or 72 km) from Hunstanton to Cromer, keeping close to the coastline.

The route, which was opened in 1986, takes walkers through different landscapes and is generally considered to be fairly easy going most of the way.

Passing through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it takes in low cliffs, sand dunes and fresh and salt water marshes.

It also passes through or nearby a number of attractive towns and picturesque villages, including Hunstanton, Holme-next-the-Sea, Thornham, Titchwell, Brancaster, Burnham Deepdale, Burnham Overy Staithe, Wells-next-the-Sea, Morston, Blakeney, Cley next the Sea, Salthouse, Kelling, Weybourne, Sheringham, Beeston Regis, East Runton, Cromer.

Keep an eye out for wildlife along the way, especially beside the marshes, where a wealth of birdlife may be spotted. Around the area of Blakeney, in particular, look out for seals in the water and on the shores.

Keen walkers will find the Norfolk Coast Path links with the Peddars Way at Holme-next-the-Sea and at Cromer connects to the Weavers Way.

It is worth noting that a Coast Hopper bus service operates along the A149 coast road between Sheringham and King's Lynn. This enables walkers to enjoy different sections of the path as they choose and to return to their start point easily if necessary.

The Coastal Path is part of Norfolk's Deep History Coast.
