2. Sheringham Park
Sheringham Park is one of our favourite places to visit in Norfolk and we return regularly throughout the year. A wonderful landscape park and woodland garden designed in 1812 by Humphry Repton, it is now under the care of the National Trust. On your visit you can experience magnificent coastal views and really stretch your legs following the various tracks, trails and pathways.
There is a cafe, gift shop and toilets to support your adventures, and so much to see and do that no two visits are the same.
This most recent visit, we took the waymarked trails down to the coast, and back – all in all a good hour and a half of walking.
One of our favourite aspects of Sheringham Park is how lovely it is to watch the landscape change with the seasons. This time of year (April / May) is particularly special as you’ll be treated to an explosion of gorgeous colour by the many Rhododendrons there. There were just starting to come out when we visited, so in the next fortnight or so, the display will be utterly stunning.
We also saw lovely patches of bluebells at various points along our walk.
Notes about this walk:
Time & Distance
You can choose to walk as far as you want! There are waymarked trails from 1 to 5 miles and we normally take a few hours on our walks here, our favourite route taking us down to the fabulous Weybourne Station. There are lots of hills for those who like a challenging stride out.
The Repton trail is accessible for 1½ miles, returning the same way, for mobility scooters, pushchairs and wheelchairs. If you are pushing a wheelchair or pushchair, please be aware that this can be quite strenuous because of the undulating landscape. The Bower is also accessible with a drop down path by the pond.
There is an accessible toilet.
Dogs are welcome at Sheringham Park.
Parking & Entry
Parking is £6.50 via a ticket machine that takes cards. It is FREE if you have National Trust membership.
Sheringham Park is open all year round, from dawn to dusk. You can read more here.
