Public Transport on the Norfolk Coast
The Norfolk coast is easily accessed by public transport and we encourage this, rather than using cars. Why not get off the bus at a new spot to explore? There are walks, local producers, events and more to be found in this exploring section and on the Active Map.
Avoid the peak times of 09:30-10:30 and 15:00-15:30.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NORFOLK COAST PARTNERSHIP DOES NOT OPERATE ANY PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES ITSELF AND THEREFORE WE DO NOT SHOW TIMETABLES OR PROVIDE CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR THE OPERATORS – SEE BELOW FOR CONTACT INFORMATION.
