Once in HUNSTANTON, why not take the opportunity to explore by bus, by cycle or on foot. It’s a great way to really tune in to the pace of the countryside.
The Coasthopper bus service is a really great way to explore the Norfolk coast. You can use it to travel between King’s Lynn, Hunstanton, Wells, Sheringham and Cromer. The service operates daily up to every hour during early spring, late autumn and winter and up to every half hour from April to October.
The combination of the Norfolk Coast Path and the Coasthopper bus offers excellent opportunities to leave the car behind and discover this beautiful part of our coastline. Most services from King’s Lynn to Hunstanton are timetabled to connect with First Capital Connect rail services, with through-ticketing available. See www.coasthopper.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cycling in and around Hunstanton
Much of the Peddars Way is open to cyclists. The Norfolk Coast Path is NOT. Two long-distance cycle routes pass through Hunstanton: National Cycle Route 30 (Norfolk Coast Cycleway) and National Cycle Route 1. For a list of Norfolk cycle paths and information about free cycling maps, see www.sustrans.org.uk.
Norfolk has a host of cycle routes including the 59 mile Norfolk Coast cycleway from King’s Lynn to Cromer and the Peddar’s Way. Sandringham is another lovely spot where families take young children to enjoy their bikes.
You don’t even have to bring your own bikes on holiday. There are many places to hire cycles along the way.
