Long walks in the East of England

Getting outside and spending time with nature is good for the soul and a walk in the fresh air can do wonders for the body and mind. So, lace up those walking boots with one of our longer walks of 4 miles or more, as we reveal 125 miles of walks you might like to try in our 125th anniversary year.

Step into spring

" A walk can really lift your spirits. The excitement of spotting a recently emerged orange tip butterfly or the wonderment of looking over the parkland decorated in a sea of buttercups."
- Malcolm Fisher, Sheringham Park

Summer strolls

Autumn adventures

" Every season has something to offer, especially at dawn and dusk when the sun turns the landscape into a piece of art."
- Callum Weir, Wimpole Estate
Great walks for winter
Walking in a snowy valley at Sheringham Park

Woodland and Coastal Walk, Sheringham Park 

Blow the cobwebs away on this wonderfully varied 7 mile walk at Sheringham Park in Norfolk, through parkland, fields, woods, and along the coast. Savour the views from the tree-top gazebo and along the cliff edge. We'd also recommend a visit to Weybourne Station and Repton’s Temple along the way.

Walks to enjoy anytime
