Norfolk Walking Festival details announced by Norfolk County Council


Operated by Norfolk County Council, the Norfolk Walking Festival will take place this year from Saturday 17 October to Sunday 1 November.

These two weeks are packed with over 40 walks and talks for all ages and abilities, during which we’ll be showcasing the beautiful countryside, wildlife and heritage in the area around our newest stretch of Norfolk Coast Path (Weybourne to Sea Palling).

With topics ranging from the life and death of trees, autumn wildflowers, discovering lost villages…..and of course a beer related walk, there’s something for everyone.

We’re very excited to host a stargazing evening with TV Astronomer Mark Thompson and a fascinating illustrated talk on Norfolk’s Deep History Coast with Dr Nick Ashton – the British Museum’s Curator of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic Collections (both events include cheese and wine).

There are some special family events too at the weekends and during half-term week, like the ‘Walk, Talk, Create’ theatre walk at Happisburgh, ‘Creepy Caches Halloween Geocache Walk’ at Sea Palling or ‘Horrible Halloween Trail’ at Sheringham Park.
