If the weather is fine, you may fancy attempting a coastal walk. These need not be long, especially if you have young children in your party, but can still be enjoyable.

Suggested Walks

Both of these routes are quite safe for younger children, though are not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

Walk to Sheringham Coastwatch Station on Skelding Hill

Near the boating lake shelter there is a coastal path that runs alongside the golf course. From here, keep heading away from Sheringham towards Weybourne, with the golf course on your left hand side and the sea to your right.

After a few minutes walk you will arrive at the Old Coastguard Lookout (the Watch Tower). From here you will have fantastic views of the sea, the surrounding countryside and, if you look carefully, steam trains running on The Poppy Line to Weybourne near the golf course.

Walk over Beeston Bump

From The Prairie, turn right and head up Cliff Road. As you approach Nelson Road on the right, keep heading left and you will see the path signposted to Beeston Hill, near the putting green. After coming down the other side of the hill it is possible to return back via Nelson Road.

Alternatively, continue via the coastal path to the level crossing. Cross, with care, and turn immediately right. Now keep to the path that runs alongside the railway line, following the pine symbol for Sheringham Trails. At the end of the path turn left into Church Close, then left again into Church Lane. At the end of the lane turn right onto the footpath which goes past Beeston Priory.

Nearby, off the A149 Cromer Road, is the Priory Maze & Gardens which is well worth a visit. You can return back to the Prairie via the A149, which will bring you to the top of Beeston Road.
