Norwich Riverside Walk


5 km / 3 miles
The River Wensum winds around Norwich and links the city to the Norfolk Broads. A little over 1.5 miles (2.5 km) of the riverside path is described here. If you follow the entire route, starting and returning to the Forum in the city centre, you will walk around 3 miles (5 km) in total. You can shorten the route by heading back towards the city centre at several points (for example at Pulls Ferry). Please note, some of the route may be uneven and some sections may be closed at dusk.
