Marriott’s Way


Following two disused railway lines between Norwich and the historic market town of Aylsham, Marriott’s way is a popular route for walkers and cyclists. It’s 26 miles long and begins in the city centre where Barn Road meets Barker Street. However, if you are not quite up to the full 26 miles, there are 9 shorter circular routes to try.

This walk/cycle route is  an escape to the country. Along the route find plenty of wildlife, woodland and wild meadows. And public art plays its part along the railway too: there are signs made from old track to show distances and directions, as well as poems, verse and concrete sculpture all the way along the route. For those on the trail of discovery, this one’s for you.

Ahead of getting out into our green spaces, please remember to Respect, Protect and Enjoy our wonderful outdoors.
