Distance: 3.2 miles

With plenty of exciting flora and fauna to sniff - including marram grass and sea thrift - and coastal birds to bark at, this is a city-dwelling dog's dream come true. Owners may be even more likely to visit when they find out the Weybourne cliffs are deemed a Site of Special Scientific Interest and that the route gives them the chance to explore the ruins of the Weybourne Priory in the churchyard, not to mention fascinating WW2 defensive structures along the coast. I think this wonderful route is as good as any string of sausages stolen from the butchers. And it'll get you in less trouble.

Start in Weybourne at the Ship Inn, then cross the road and follow the signs that direct you to the beach.
When you arrive at the beach, turn right, resisting the urge to puncture that volleyball.
Keeping the sea on your left, enjoy the lovely views and the sea air as you stroll the 2.6 miles along the cliffs. You'll be on the Norfolk Coast Path so simply follow the National Trail marks (the acorn symbols) along to Sheringham. This is the perfect time for you and your owner to enjoy each other's company, so why not stay close and strike up a conversation? You never know, they might have finally learned to bark back.
Don't waste too much energy trying to correct their pronunciation, however, as you'll need to walk up a steep incline when you reach Skelding Hill. This takes you to the Coastguard lookout post - and one of my favourite views. I like to gaze at it while my owner rests on one of the seats there. You might be interested to note that to the north, there's no land between where you are and the Arctic.
Carry on your walk back down to reach the town.
You'll come to an archway known as Marble Arch, which was built in 1905. Go through it and then turn right to stroll along the promenade.
There's a bridge over the fishing boats; cross this bridge then take the next right beside The Two Lifeboats - a pub and bed and breakfast that serves food too - then back on to the High Street.
