Coasthopper Walks
Overview

'Coasthopper shadows the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail all the way along from Hunstanton to Cromer, so it's really easy to take the bus, get off for a good walk, and rejoin the bus a bit further along the route. What's more the Peddars Way National Trail also reaches the coast at Holme next the Sea.' Note that I have replaced the original Link used here with one to WalkCromer.

Hardwicke to Hay Walk
Distance (miles)4
Overview

'The Hay Ho! Bus offers lots of opportunities for a great day out, whether that’s walking in the Golden Valley or the Black Mountains, or spending a day shopping in Hereford! ... This is quite a short (4 mile) linear walk, but very little of it is on flat ground until the final stretch on the road, and there are several quite noticeable climbs.'
