Cycle Route

Nelson's Norfolk

Nelson's Norfolk


This cycle ride starts from the market town of Fakenham. From here the route heads north into an area of rich rolling countryside, with pretty flint villages and spectacular views of the coast. Here, one of England's greatest heroes, Lord Horatio Nelson was born. Make a pilgrimage to his father's church, and to the famous shrine of 'Our Lady' in the religious centre of Little Walsingham. Along this route you can discover the 14th C Slipper Chapel, take a ride on a narrow gauge railway and explore Holkham Hall, one of Britain's most majestic stately homes.
