Our Explore More walks

The below list contains walks created by Norfolk Coast Partnership and our partner organisations.

The 10 Explore More walks explore the lesser-known parts of the Norfolk Coast area. The walking guides tell you about places where you can pause for a drink or bite to eat, point out interesting sites to visit along the way, and give some handy information, such as if the pubs are dog friendly or how long the walks might take to complete.

Each Explore More guide has four pages giving basic information about the walk, a description of what to expect along the way, route instructions and a map.

Please note that public transport services are particularly subject to changes and whilst we try to provide this information on the walk sheets you are advised to check before setting off (the version date on the bottom of the front page indicates when the download was last amended).

Explore More was funded through the Sustainable Development Fund and a European Interreg IVB programme called Coast Alive.
