About this trip

This is an 11 day/12 night (13 days in total to include arrival and departure days) self guided walk along the Peddars Way and  Norfolk Coast Path National Trail all the way around the coast to Hopton on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.  This will be organised by Explore Norfolk UK, so all you have to do is turn up and enjoy the stunning and unique landscape. 

 Pricing and deposit are per person. 


The Peddars Way is an historic Roman road.  Follow in the footsteps of the Romans from the middle of Knettishall Heath which is just outside Thetford, all the way to the North Norfolk Coast. On the way you'll come across priory and castle ruins, ancient woodland , heathland and arrow straight Roman roads, as well as old burial mounds and ice age pingo ponds.   This is a really peaceful wonderful walk.  

The Norfolk Coast Path, by contrast, will take you over sand dunes and beaches, national nature reserves, salt marshes and cliffs, coastal villages and Victorian towns, working fishing ports, as well as presenting you with amazing wildlife.   You'll come across the coastal erosion on the eastern side of Norfolk, along with a more remote feel to it.  You'll also love the huge skies that only Norfolk can give you!

I'm Suzy Watson, and I established Explore Norfolk UK in 2013. This covers walking and cycling holidays. As I was walking along a stretch of the Norfolk Coast Path and being stunned by its beauty yet again, I suddenly realised just what I could offer visitors to Norfolk. Then a cycling route came along so I did the same for this! So, as well as living in Norfolk, I am here to give you the opportunity to book a fantastic and memorable Norfolk walking or cycling holiday through Explore Norfolk UK, a truly Norfolk business.
