The North Norfolk Coast






Travel to and around

North Norfolk coast

There are rail links, but they only touch the periphery of the area

Road access is better All routes converge on King's Lynn (and thence diverge to Yarmouth/Lowestoft as well as North Norfolk). Roads around King's Lynn can be very congested, and beyond are slow. Allow good time for your journey if you are used to motorway travel!

Most people come by road. For those not used to North Norfolk, the roads are narrow and twisting. Take good care! Even the main coast road (the A149) is no better than many country roads and much busier. Some villages have such narrow roads that two vehicles can scarcely pass. In villages suich as Stiffkey DO OBEY THE 20mph LIMIT.
