Aylsham welcomes walkers ... we have lots to offer.  

Aylsham is at the heart of two long-distance paths and several circular walks

  • The Marriotts Way starts (or finishes) in Aylsham and runs 26 miles to Norwich.
  • The Weavers’ Way which runs from Great Yarmouth, through the Broads, to Aylsham and then north towards Cromer passing through rolling farmland and then onto the rugged North Norfolk Coast, linking eventually with the North Norfolk Coast Path and the Peddar’s Way. 
  • The Bure Valley Footpath runs along the valley of the River Bure to Wroxham, alongside the the narrow gauge Bure Valley Railway.
Interlinking Trails and Public Transport Interlinking Trails and Public Transport

Public transport makes getting to Aylsham easy and also interlinks with the local trails making it simple to plan your walking programme. 

  • It’s also possible to arrive in Aylsham using the narrow gauge Bure Valley Railway which connects to the main railway network – offering a very different travel experience!
  • There is a regular bus service to Norwich and Cromer and outlying villages.
  • Aylsham is also on Sustrans Regional Cycle Route 33, so a great place for cyclists to stop and explore.
