Great YarmouthGreat Yarmouth is a useful hub for the east coastal part of the area, and its immediate hinterland.
NorwichNorwich is the pre-eminent hub for the area, its public transport connections extending throughout.

Guided and group walks

Saturday Walking Club

This online-driven group has been well established in the London area for some years, but the reach of their walks goes far beyond the M25. Their walks are all free (the word “club” may be a bit misleading) and there are walks on other days of the week. You may download a route from their extensive catalogue to enable you to walk on your own — you are expected to carry your own copy of the route-map if you join a group walk.
