Walking in Norfolk

40 circular walks in the Broads, Brecks, Fens and along the coast

Guidebook to 40 easy to moderate walks in the English county of Norfolk. Circular routes of 4 to 12 miles show off the area's surprisingly varied landscape: the Broads, Brecks and Fens and coastal dunes, salt marsh and tidal creeks. Also includes information on Norfolk's rich history and unique plants and wildlife.


all routes can be walked year-round; each season has its charms: summer for wild flowers; spring and autumn for migrating birds; the austere landscape of winter, especially on the coast


Norwich, King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth and Cromer


all routes are easy to moderate and can be done by anyone of reasonable fitness; no specialist equipment or skills necessary; Norfolk may not be quite as flat as it is sometimes claimed but with the highest land just 100m above sea level walking is largely on the level
