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.

Coastal Bus (formerly known as The Coasthopper)

From 30 April 2018 the coastal bus service known as Coasthopper has changed following the withdrawal of operator Stagecoach. The service is now a joint operation between Lynx buses operating the service between King’s Lynn and Wells under the Coastliner branding and Sanders Coaches operating between Wells and Cromer (*with links to Mundesley and North Walsham) under the Coasthopper branding.

Lynx Coastliner timetables (for King’s Lynn to Wells) available from www.lynxbus.co.uk/bus-times-fares

Avoiding peak times – try not to travel between 09:30-10:30 and 15:00-15:30 as this is when the bus is most busy by planning your journey accordingly.
