About this trip

This is a 3 day/4 night (5 days in total to include arrival and departure days) self guided walk along the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail, starting at Cromer and finishing at Hopton.  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. 


You may have already walked the Norfolk Coast Path from Hunstanton to Cromer.  If you have,  you'll find this stretch is very different to the first stretch.  It has a completely different atmosphere and feel to it, and I always think it's a bit more open, rural and wild.  The towns and villages aren't quite as upmarket as the North Norfolk coast!  

If you haven't already walked the first stretch, then this will be a lovely walk for you.

You'll experience sand dunes and beaches, SSSI reserves, an iconic red and white lighthouse, cliffs and very evident coastal erosion, seals on Horsey beach (hopefully you'll see these),  and in and out of the busy town of Great Yarmouth heading towards the Norfolk/Suffolk border at Hopton.

Day 1 -  14 miles/22.5 km

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.


The trim was meticulously organised and all went to plan. Accomodation was all good and interestingly varied ditto the evening meals where we were always able to find a non-fish option [ we don't like fish which is a bit silly for a coastal holiday! Many thanks, Suzy. Jane and Chris

The weather was mostly conducive but there had been lots of rain and two days were dismally wet. The Peddars Way route was well marked and the guide book was helpful. On the Peddars Way most tracks were deeply grooved by equipment and bikes so that walking was difficult and at this time many puddles and boggy spaces had to be negotiated. In some places the puddles were so wide there was no option than to walk in blackberries or brave electric or barbed wire fences! So many tracks on the Coast Walk made the way sometimes difficult to follow. Some of the day trip distances were a bit long for us in the adverse conditions. The organisation of our trip, moving our luggage, accommodation, meal recommendations, transport and follow up was excellent. We would recommend highly WeTravel. Thank you for your care and attention to detail!

This was my first visit to Norfolk and I know I shall be returning. I had an amazing time - I enjoyed staying in all those lovely villages like Great Massingham and Blakeney, saw plenty of wildlife, and fell in love with Norfolk sandy beaches. The highlight of my Peddars Way was a visit to Castle Acre Priory - one of the most beautiful and tranquil places I've ever visited. The Norfolk Coast Path between Sea Palling and Winterton-on-Sea was a truly unforgettable experience with so many seals on shore. The accommodation was of the highest standard and the luggage was always waiting for me. Thank you Suzy for organising such a fantastic trip!

The trip along the Norfolk Coastal Path was well organised. The accommodation,apart from George & Dragon was comfortable and interesting, esp Hill House Inn, in Happisburgh. The George & Dragon is not walkers accommodation, as it only offers limited breakfast options. The walk its self is scenic & interesting. I would recommend Explore Norfolk UK if you intend to walk this trail.
By John C for Explore Norfolk UK 7 day walk, Hunstanton to Hopton on Apr 25, 2024
Explore Norfolk UK did an excellent job of organizing this trip. The Guidebook and itinerary were very helpful for navigating the walk, and for pointing out historical and unique sites. They also provided general instructions/ suggestions (where to eat, where to leave suitcases, etc.). We have completed several holiday walks and would have to say this one is now our favorite. It was really lovely. The accommodations and food were excellent. The staff were polite and helpful. We would definitely highly recommend this holiday tour organization and this walk.
