Walking in the borough of Greater Yarmouth

Greater Yarmouth is a beautiful area to discover on foot. Many people consider Norfolk to be flat, we prefer to describe it as rolling, as there are a few hills out there to challenge walkers. Several of the National Trails originate in the borough, and there are plenty of other walks for hikers to enjoy, of all distances and difficulties.

The Norfolk Trails network brings together over 1,200 miles of walks, cycle and bridle routes throughout our beautiful county, many of which are in the borough of Great Yarmouth. There are options to go for a short circular walk, sample just a section of a trail or use a trail to visit a nearby town, village or heritage site.

If you're feeling fit you could attempt the full 93 miles of the Angles Way running from Great Yarmouth to Thetford, the 37.5 mile Wherryman's Way from Great Yarmouth to Norwich or the 61 mile Weavers' Way from Great Yarmouth to Cromer! There are also some great Coast Alive Great Yarmouth walks, some of which are circular.

If you're feeling really adventurous take a look at the Mary Michael Pilgrims Way walk, or sections of it, which ends at Hopton-on-Sea.

We've gathered together a collection of our favourite walks here, with pdfs to download where possible, or details of the relevant walk book available to buy in Great Yarmouth Tourist Information Centre. Grouped by distance, you should be able to find a walk to suit you and your group.
