The Boudicca Way is a long distance footpath which runs for approximately 36 miles between Diss and Norwich. Running roughly parallel with the old Roman ‘Pye’ Road, now the A140, the route follows public rights of way and quiet country roads, stopping off in picturesque villages such as Pulham Market, Saxlingham Nethergate and Shotesham along the way.
The way starts and finishes at mainline railway stations so makes it the perfect route for those looking for green or sustainable travel and holiday options.
The Boudicca Way is named after the legendary warrior Queen of the Iceni, whose tribes once inhabited the area, and passes through the beautiful, unspoilt rural countryside of South Norfolk and the Waveney Valley where visitors will find sites where unusual wildlife and flora are present.
The towns and villages surrounding the route offer an excellent choice of accommodation, places to eat and drink, locally produced food, local arts and crafts and interesting places to visit.
The route is split into four manageable sections so you can choose to walk the whole route or just part of it – we also have details of local circular walks.
This site pulls together all the information you’ll need to plan your visit to South Norfolk and the Waveney Valley. If there’s anything you can’t find please get in touch via the Contact Us page, we’re always pleased to offer personal advice.
The Boudicca Way is one of the Norfolk Trails – 400 miles-worth of long distance paths which link the Coast, Broads, Brecks and Waveney Valley with Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Kings Lynn and market towns across Norfolk.
The Norfolk Trails package include the Peddars Way, the Norfolk Coast Path, Boudicca Way, Weavers Way, Angles Way, Paston Way, Nar Valley Way, Wherrymans Way and Marriotts Way. Together, they support many local economies, and hundreds of businesses which serve the thousands of people who use the routes every year.
Norfolk County Council and a large number of partner and volunteer organisations look after these routes to support and encourage tourism, improve the health and well being of residents and visitors and increase access to Norfolk's countryside.
