The fifth annual Norfolk Walking & Cycling Festival is taking place this October. This year the festival is being hosted by the Coastal Treasures project which aims to promote sustainable tourism and open-up new ways to explore the rich heritage of West Norfolk.

Cllr Andrew Jamieson, Norfolk County Council’s member champion for Walking and Cycling, said: “We’ve got a bumper series of events this year with something almost every day during October. There are gentle strolls, nature and history walks, a run to a brewery and family friendly activities. Most of the events are free so I’d like to invite people to come and explore, and connect with Norfolk’s stunning scenery and fascinating history.

“If you can’t make it to any of the events it’s easy to choose a walk to suit you anytime as the Coastal Treasures project, which is hosting this year’s walking and cycling festival, has seen a brand-new set of circular waymarked walks and cycle tours created throughout north-west Norfolk. The routes have been chosen to showcase the landscape, landmarks and heritage of the area.”

And this summer saw Norfolk’s 84 mile-long National Trail, the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path, become completely stile-free, making the long distance routes more accessible than ever.
