At 84 miles long, the Norfolk Coast Path covers some stunning areas along Norfolk’s coastline. Stretching all the way from Hunstanton in the west, past Brancaster and the Ship Hotel, to Hopton-on-Sea in the south east.

The majority of this walking trail runs through the dramatic landscape of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in salt marshes, stunning beaches, cliffs and a fantastic array of bird and wildlife.

The Ship Hotel at Brancaster is an ideal watering hole or overnight stop for anyone passing Brancaster on the Norfolk Coast Path, and is also a great base from which to explore local sections of the path.
