Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Acle—Great Yarmouth

mtormey added Aclgre two, a new walk from Acle to Great Yarmouth

Walk this route

I walked this route from Acle to Great Yarmouth. I want to like it, and there's a lot about it that's great - it's beautiful in The Broads, and following the riverside path for 95% of this walk is straightforward and easy. These two issues were especially bad in the segment of the route from just north of the New Road along the river, east along the river about half a mile or so. After passing the railway station, I didn't like that the route stuck to North Quay, a big busy road. The route isn't terrible, but there's enough about it that's a bit challenging!...

Walk this route

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....

Walk this route

It's a sandy/ grassy/ dune as said below but mostly flat and also agree its a much quieter alternative to walk along the beach. I took my shoes off and walked barefoot by the seashore for some it, which was joyful. The number 8 bus from Caister to Great Yarmouth is quite frequent....

Walk this route

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....

Walk this route

The ground from Berney Arms to Reedham is super uneven and there are lots of holes, so worth wearing good boots with ankle support....

Saira

Walk this route

It's quieter to walk the route fully on the beach, but that's less accessible and there's decent public transport (bus) between start and end points if you're only walking one way....

Alex Bennett

Walk this route

This route is mostly off-road and two thirds follows dyke paths alongside rivers and breydon water. The route follows the Wherryman's Way and is clearly signposted for the majority of the route. It's a lovely route for wildlife and wide open skies and is great on the right day....

Truffle

Walk this route

A pleasant walk that is mostly along seaside promenades from Great Yarmouth up until the holiday park between Great Yarmouth and Caister, where the pavement ends and the path goes onto the back of the dunes, before then turning inland past the Lifeboat station. (this section prior to turning in is the most difficult part, and, as another review has mentioned, could probably be avoided by turning into the large car park first, prior to the lifeboat station. (only reason for 4* and not 5*)...

Walk this route

There are few alternative options due to the waterways and the fact this follows the Norfolk Coast path shows there are little other options....

Truffle

Walk this route

The route could also be walked mostly on the beach proper even at high tide from Caister to Britannia pier in Great Yarmouth. The slight deviation at great Yarmouth takes you onto the path between the beach and the waterways away from the road....
