England Coast Path - Hopton-on-Sea to Sea Palling


34 km / 21 miles
A 21-mile stretch from Hopton-on-Sea to Sea Palling is the second stretch of the new coastal path completed in Norfolk, this section opening on 24 October 2016. The route includes three new miles of access between Horsey and Sea Palling, where walkers and wildlife watchers can enjoy a quieter section of Norfolk's coastline. The section is a showcase for Norfolk's varied coastline, from historic towns and villages to wildlife and beautiful beaches. It includes the towns of Caister, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston-on-Sea. The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail links to the new section via part of the Weybourne to Sea Palling coastal path opened earlier.

This is the second stretch of the England Coast Path to open in Norfolk following the 26 miles established between Weybourne and Sea Palling in December 2014. It also marks 30 years since the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail, from Cromer to Hunstanton, was opened by HRH The Prince of Wales. Taken together, the paths cover 83 miles around the Norfolk coast as far as Hunstanton, creating the longest section of coast path in the east of England.
