Walking and Rambling in Sheringham

Overview

Get back to nature and stride out on foot to explore the beauty of this part of the country. Whether it be walking routes or off the beaten track, you’re sure to enjoy wandering around and taking in the sights. 'Pretty Corner' near Sheringham (10-15 minute walk from the hostel) has been named among the best open spaces in the UK, winning the right to fly the prestigious Green Flag (awarded for being welcoming, safe, clean and well–managed). Pretty Corner has an Interactive Family Walking Trail, Sculpture Rubbings and an Explorer Booklet/Map (available from the hostel) to keep the kids occupied.

If running is more your thing, every Saturday morning you can join young and old alike and take part in a 5k Park Run at Sheringham Park (a National Trust location). The Park Run is rumoured to be one of the toughest runs in the country, so if you like a challenge, this is the one to aim for! The run starts at 9am and after you've finished, you'll be able to relax in this beautiful scenery before heading back to the hostel for a well-deserved rest.
