Peddars Way and North Norfolk Coast Path

The Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path combine to make a very accessible 93 mile walk, taking in the best parts of the Norfolk countryside and coastline.

The Peddars Way is an ancient road dating back to the Bronze Age, then developed into a military route in Roman times and later used by pilgrims during the 15th century. The route is straight and flat following mostly green lanes and tracks with some interesting archaeological sites along the way.

The Norfolk Coast Path follows the coast from Hunstanton to Cromer for 45 miles. With interesting Victorian seaside towns, fishing villages, beautiful beaches and nature reserves with a wealth of bird life, there is plenty to see along the coast.
