Hunstanton to King's Lynn
Starting in the coastal town of Hunstanton on The Wash, follow National Cycle route 1 to King's Lynn on the banks of the River Ouse.
Highlights on the route include the splendid coastal scenery at the start and the wooded Sandringham Country Park-the Norfolk retreat for the Queen with beautiful grounds and the impressive Sandringham House. Also, shortly after Sandringham is the village of Castle Rising with its 12th century ruined castle. You'll also pass close to the lovely RSPB Snettisham where there are excellent bird watching opportunities.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas
On the western side of the Sandringham estate you'll find the interesting village of Wolferton. Here you can visit the noteworthy Wolferton Railway Station. The now disused station was well known during the 1800’s through its association with the Royal Family who used the station because of its proximity to Sandringham House. There are also trails to pick up around the Dersingham Bog Nature Reserve in this area. The reserve is part of the wider Sandringham Royal Estate and includes attractive heathland with interesting flora and fauna to see.
