Walk along the Norfolk Coastal Path and Peddar’s Way and enjoy the stunning sunsets you find along this coastline overlooking The Wash

Walking at the foot of Hunstanton Cliffs - photo by Caroline RollinsThe famous Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path runs from Hunstanton and continues along the coast to Cromer, with most of it passing through the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Walking along the gentle Coastal Path treats all walkers to fabulous views of open sandy beaches, endless skies, great beaches, clifftops, marshes, acres of farmland and undulating Norfolk countryside.  The thriving birdlife is a birdwatcher’s dream and attracts people from all over the world.  If you tire of walking the route is remarkably well served by the Coasthopper bus service.

Fantastic scenery and landscape covering more than 90 miles of the two trails of the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path.  The trail makes it particularly suitable for people with special access needs.  There are several lengths where you can gain equal access and enjoy the countryside.  Braille, large print, audio and DAISY guides are now available through the UK library system.

More local walks to and from Hunstanton

Walking along Hunstanton prom - photo by Susan KingIt is all too easy to enjoy a walk along Hunstanton’s promenade right through to Heacham.  It is flat all the way and you get to enjoy the beach, the seaside atmosphere and wide open spaces of Norfolk.  If you are not up to hard walking then there are plenty of resting places along the way.  Best of all you can catch a bus back from Heacham to Hunstanton or you can always retrace your steps or create a circular walk right through Heacham Village and along the A149 to Hunstanton.

There are many great local walks to enjoy.  Next door to Hunstanton is Heacham – where there is the Heacham Heritage Walk which is also great for those that enjoy a less arduous walk.

Hunstanton to Old Hunstanton – either through the Esplanade Gardens and along the cliff top, or along the beach beneath the cliffs, passing the wreck of the Sheraton on the way – about a mile each way.

Hunstanton promenade to Heacham – a flat easy walk of about 2 miles each way.

Hunstanton to Holme Next the Sea – an extension of the above walk, through Old Hunstanton and along the Coast Path behind Hunstanton Golf Course and beside the River Hun – about three miles each way. (The Peddars Way joins the Coast Path at this village if you wish to extend the walk.)
