Sword on yellow & green named discsBoudicca Way

58 km / 36 miles

Norfolk
The Boudicca Way passes through the beautiful, unspoilt rural countryside of South Norfolk and the Waveney Valley. It is named after the legendary warrior Queen of the Iceni, whose tribes once inhabited the area, and runs for approximately 36 miles between Norwich and Diss. Running roughly parallel with the old Roman 'Pye' Road, now known as the A140, the route follows public rights of way and quiet country roads. A detour is taken to view the remains of Venta Icenorum Roman town at Caistor St Edmund and picturesque villages such as Shotesham, Saxlingham Nethergate and Pulham Market are visited.

The Way starts and finishes at mainline railway stations so makes it perfect for those looking for sustainable travel options.
