Check out our latest advert featured on a Norfolk Coasthopper bus!
When holidaying in Norfolk, leave the car behind as one of the quickest and easiest ways to explore the North Norfolk Coast is using the reliable Norfolk Green Coasthopper bus service. They run every half an hour during the summer period and roughly every hour during the winter months.
The Coasthopper route shadows the Norfolk Coastal Path all the way along from Hunstanton to Cromer, so it’s really easy to take the bus, get off for a good walk, stop for lunch and drinks at a local pub then use the wooden signposts along the path to point you towards the nearest Coasthopper bus stop to re-join the bus when your feet have had enough.
This summer along with looking out for our bus….. (See above!) Be sure to spot the fleet of buses which are all named after many famous characters that are associated with Norfolk, including Henry Blog (bus 301) “The greatest of the lifeboatmen” He was Coxswain of the Cromer lifeboat from 1909 to 1947 and earned the George Cross & British Empire Medal for his bravery. Thomas William Coke (bus 317) “The first Earl of Leicester, who kick-started the agricultural revolution across Britain in early 19th Century through his work on the Holkham estate” Also, Black Shuck (bus 9) “The legendry ghostly black dog which is said to roam the North Norfolk coastline.”
Speaking of dogs the bus service will also take well behaved dogs on board for free which[node:title] | [site:name] means your four legged friends can also enjoy the ride.
