A Norfolk path has been named the best walk in the country for those looking to see wildlife. 

The Norfolk Coastal Path was given the title in The Telegraph's ranking of the 15 best British walks.

The path spans 84 miles from Hunstanton to Hopton-on-Sea, passing through a range of terrains including beaches, marshes, seaside towns and countryside paths.

The Telegraph estimates the entire trip to take between five and eight days to complete and suggests the best section is between Brancaster and Holkham Gap.

Sarah Baxter, the article's author, said: "It’s wonderful for wildlife and winter walking, with Britain’s biggest seal colony, birds in their millions and the best options for off-season strolling, given its shorter length, favourable terrain and wonderful dark skies."

She added that the path enables an exploration of the Deep History Coast, where some of the earliest evidence of European human settlement was found.

However, she did confess that for some avid walkers "it’ll be too darn flat".
