This is a family-friendly walk which follows the coast from West Runton to Cromer in North Norfolk. In this guide we share details of the walk, the three beaches and best things to do in Cromer with kids. The walk from West Runton to Cromer follows the route of the Norfolk Coast Path. This is a long-distance trail, which runs for 84 miles from Hunstanton to Hopton-on-Sea. You can also walk along the coastal path on the cliff top, but our walk was with ten kids so took the beach route!
If you think a Tudor fortress, a boat trip, and some crabbing fun sound like the perfect ingredients for a day out, then head to the seaside town of Milford-on Sea. We had a fun visit with the kids which started with a walk to Hurst Castle near Milford-on-Sea and ended up crabbing in Keyhaven.
