We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked this route starting at Gorleston, the suggested route actually goes along Pavilion Road, which doesn't have any pavements at that point, an alternative round there would be to stay close to the beach until the Pier Hotel and then follow that round which then would join this route as it goes onto Riverside Road.
It's an easy to follow route, as there are signs for the Norfolk Coastal Path as well. There are also a few points along here near the quayside where the pavements stop that needs to be noted.
However, care needs to be taken where the route turns right at Beccles Road - there is a lot of roadworks going on where a new bridge is being built, and various parts of the footpath were actually closed. Once roadworks are complete, it looks like there should be no problems at this junction area, but (in October 2022) this is slightly difficult.
For the rest of the route up Southtown Road, this is a long straight road with pavements either side, and is easy enough to get up to where there is a Matalan on the corner, and turning right and going over the bridge, before arriving in Great Yarmouth.
An easy route between Great Yarmouth and Gorleston, which should improve once the works on the new bridge have been completed.

I enjoyed this walk! It was quite straightforward and follows the river Yare/ Norfolk Coastal path for much of the way. I especially enjoyed seeing the cottages, parrotdise and the lighthouse. Gorleston is beautiful.

Most of this route follows the Norfolk Coast path between the two towns. There are few alternative options due to the waterways and the fact this follows the Norfolk Coast path shows there are little other options. That said, apart from a section along Southtown Road (a bit boring but with some interesting maritime businesses and historical connections) it's a lovely walk. Note that the new river crossing is causing disruption to the pedestrian route. The section along the inlet of the Yare is nice with the lighthouse in Gorleston. Old time dockside cottages. Plenty of access to refreshments and facilities. Some nice urban art.
