Sheringham Park was designed by Humphry Repton with impressive views in mind. With 1,000 acres of parkland and woodland to explore, it is an outdoor playground for all ages. The whole family can get active whilst enjoying inspiring sea views, bucket loads of fresh air and natural highlights at every turn.

Walking at Sheringham Park

Marked Trails

There are four waymarked routes with distances ranging from one to five miles taking you through the varying habitats of the park. Coastal views, many created by landscape gardener Humphry Repton, are a feature of all the trails and the changing seasons will provide a different look for each visit. You never know what you may see around the next corner. Will it be a butterfly, a bird or maybe one of the three species of deer that can be spotted here?

Woodland and Coastal walk

If you would like to experience the range of habitats that Sheringham Park has to offer, then this is the walk for you. Your route will take you through woodland, parkland, farmland and along the cliff edge giving you the opportunity to enjoy the many natural highlights of the park.

Reptons Walk

Humphry Repton presented his design for Sheringham Park way back in 1812. Over 200 years later you can still enjoy the coastal views he created and appreciate why he stated ‘Sheringham possessed more natural beauty and local advantages, than any place I have ever seen’.

Running at Sheringham Park

With challenging hills and varied terrains, there’s a lot more to trail running than how fast you run or how far you go. Running on the trails at Sheringham Park gives runners of all abilities the chance to get close to wildlife and escape the noise of everyday life.


Parkrun is a free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event that takes place at Sheringham Park every Saturday at 9am. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – and then head to the Courtyard Café for a post parkrun coffee and cake.
