The Norfolk Coast Path[1] is a long distance footpath in Norfolk, running 62.5 miles (100.5 km) from Hunstanton to Sea Palling. It was opened in 1986 and covers the North Norfolk Coast AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

It links with the Peddars Way at Holme-next-the-Sea, and the two in combination form the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path National Trail, one of 15 National Trails[2] in England and Wales. At Cromer it links to the Weavers Way. In December 2014, the trail was extended to Sea Palling and forms part of the England Coast Path.[3]
