The Norfolk Coast Path[1] is a long distance footpath in Norfolk, running 45 miles (72 km) from Hunstanton to Cromer. 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.
