A lovely walk along the top of the cliffs, which are being eroded quickly, so keep well back from the edge! There is a Pay & Display car park with toilets at the northern end of the cliffs ( at the end of Beach road) You can make this a circular walk by going away from the cliffs towards the lighthouse and following the path back to the road, turn right along the main road and right again along the road back to the car park. The lighthouse can be visited on some Sundays and Bank holidays during the Summer ( details can be found on the Happisburgh village website)-no visits this year though,due to COVID-19. Happisburgh cliffs and beach are part of the ‘Deep History Coast’ where the earliest known human footprints outside Africa were found in 2013.

A lovely stretch of beach but as every one will know by now this area of the Norfolk coast suffers badly from coastal erosion. Hang on to your kids and make them aware of the dangers by the cliff edge both at the top and the bottom, also keep them away from the edge as you walk down to the beach from the car park at the top. Being able to walk right up to the iconic Happisburgh light house is a real treat.

We decided to visit Happisburgh but didn't know what to expect. It was a beautiful beach with a great expanse of sand, backed by cliffs. The car park is relatively small ok in October but I suspect a nightmare in the summer.

Nice beach, no lifeguards has a great kiddies play ground, car park and super clean toilets, no other facilities but a short pleasant walk to the Hill house pub you can get great food n drinks, you can walk to the light house from the car park, there are a few picnic tables on the cliff next to the beach access, in the summer you need to arrive before 11am as the car park fills up very quickly, it’s very popular we saw seals on our last visit.
