Your Norfolk

Enjoy the great outdoors this summer

Coastal path

Summer’s here and many of us will be planning days out in our beautiful county. Norfolk is the perfect place to explore on foot or by bicycle. There’s a huge choice of walks and cycle routes on offer to suit all levels and abilities, ranging from short walks and circular routes to long-distance trails.

As well as enjoying stunning scenery, huge skies, peaceful country lanes, pretty villages, historic churches and woodlands, you’ll also be giving your general health and wellbeing a boost. Walking and cycling is a great way to keep active, burn calories and lift your mood.

Three trails to try

Marriott’s Way

This 26-mile off-road trail for cyclists, walkers and horse riders, follows the route of two disused railway lines, between Norwich and Aylsham, via Drayton, Lenwade, Cawston and Reepham.

Marriotts Way

Sandringham circular

From a Norman castle to a modern royal estate, this journey offers wonderful sights from the distant and recent past. This walk is featured in the Coastal Treasures book.

Angles Way

A 93-mile walking trail following the county boundary of Norfolk and Suffolk from Great Yarmouth to Thetford. The route meanders through open countryside, broad river valleys, pretty villages, ancient market towns, heath and woodland.
