With December finally arriving, here are the top five winter walks to explore across Norfolk.
The Holkham Estate
The estate is home to more than 3,000 acres of parklands and coast to explore. The park offers a host of waymarked footpaths spanning across the estate, with routes suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
The grounds develop even more magic over the festive period. The hall itself gets a Christmas facelift that can be explored by guests in their candlelight self-led tours.
Blakeney Point Coastal Walk
Blakeney National Nature Reserve's rugged and dramatic coastline makes it the perfect place for a stroll in the winter months.
The area of outstanding natural beauty has vast open landscapes perfect for a slightly more active walk. The National Trust has a four-mile-long shingle spit to the sand dunes perfect for blowing those wintery cobwebs away.
A large seal colony is also known to make the beach their home, however, it is important to admire them from a distance and stick to the paths set out.
The broad on the outskirts of Norwich is a hive for activity. The circular two-and-a-half-mile trail winds around the broad for a picturesque waterside walk.
The park is also home to Flint café which offers the perfect place to warm up with tea or coffee afterwards.
The route is very flat and perfect for anyone looking for something more leisurely.
The stunning estate set around the Jacobean stately home offers a popular destination to unwind, with thousands visiting the site every year.
The 950-acre estate is host to various walking routes set around its parklands and woods. The lake walk offers a particularly fresh winter walk with the hall offering a perfect backdrop to get you in the festive spirit.
The 26-mile route is made up of footpaths, bridleways' and cycle routes that follow the route of a disused railway line between Aylsham and Norwich.
The path cuts across a whole range of landscapes including the Wensum river valley and Whitwell common which offers a great place to spot wildlife.
