Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path Highlights

  • Enjoy two contrasting paths with a wide variety of scenery formed over centuries of history
  • Walk in the footsteps of the Romans who built the paths beneath your feet
  • Experience the diversity of nature as you stroll past rolling farmland, extensive sandy beaches and impressive salt marshes
  • Add an additional day to your walk and visit the twin ruins at Castle Acre, founded after the Norman Conquest
  • Explore the Brecks – home to the legendary ‘Queen of the Iceni’, better known as Boudica
  • Watch the sun set over the sea at Hunstanton – one of the few places on the east coast of England where this is possible

The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path combine two walks into one National Trail. Start by walking south to north, before heading west to east along the beautiful Norfolk Coast. Enjoy the contrasts and diversity as you walk through a landscape that has been shaped over centuries.

This 93 miles / 149 km National Trail has it all – gentle rolling farmland, low cliffs, salt marshes and tidal inlets, Roman history, Norman churches and unspoilt villages.

The trail begins in Knettishall Heath Country Park in the county of Suffolk and follows the line of an old Roman Road towards Hunstanton, a former Victorian resort town.

From Hunstanton, you will join the Norfolk Coast Path and walk eastwards to the busy port of Cromer, the ‘Gem of the Norfolk Coast’ and the hub of Norfolk’s crab fishing industry.

The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path offers some fine coastal walking and is generally level with very few steep climbs and can be covered over a leisurely period of between six to eight days.
