Walks for everyone

The Norfolk Coast can be enjoyed by all, regardless of accessibility needs.

We believe the Norfolk Coast should be enjoyed by all, regardless of their accessibility needs. The term ‘accessibility’ is not one size fits all, and everyone’s needs are different.

As such, we believe that one of the best ways we can facilitate access to the countryside is by providing as much information about our trails and wild places as we can so that visitors can plan a trip that suits them.

We recognize there is more work to be done, and we’d welcome thoughts, feedback and suggestions for future accessibility improvements across the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 

One great resource for accessible walks is the Active Norfolk Dementia Friendly Walks page, which features large maps of ‘easy ambles’ all tested to be dementia friendly.

Our Trails team has also carried out numerous surface improvements to the National Trail at Skelding Hill (shown at the top of the post), Brancaster, Thornham and Cromer with the goal of providing a a level and predictable path with a clear corridor.
